Rockefeller University Research Assistant, Yeast Molecular Genetics in New York, New York
Job Title Research Assistant, Yeast Molecular Genetics
Laboratory / Department Yeast Molecular Genetics
We work on the cell cycle using budding yeast as a model system. We are collaborating to construct ordinary differential equation-based models for control of the yeast cell cycle, and to test these models genetically and biochemically. We are engaged in a combined biochemical and genetic screen for binding partners and phosphorylation targets specific to different cyclin-Cdk complexes. We plan a combined computational and molecular approach to analysis of promoter elements important in both the mitotic and meiotic cell cycles
The Research Assistant will work with molecular biologists and physicists on molecular, genetic and cell biological analysis in microbial systems. The Research Assistant will perform a moderate amount of laboratory management and inventory maintenance/ordering. Will be involved in molecular biology procedures such as DNA isolation, PCR, restriction mapping, plasmid construction, protein extraction, immunopreparation, and enzyme assays. Will work independently when appropriate. Will be involved in molecular biology procedures such as DNA isolation, PCR, restriction mapping, plasmid construction, protein extraction, immunopreparation, and enzyme assays.
