Senior Research Associate
Our laboratory investigates the role of the renal urothelium in urinary tract obstruction. Specifically, we investigate the renal urothelium stem/progenitor and the molecular mechanisms governing urothelial development and repair. We are seeking a highly motivated and detail-oriented Senior Research Associate to perform bench research studies, analyze data and report experimental findings to the Principal Investigator. Applicants with experience managing a mouse colony, performing experiments on laboratory mice, and in flow cytometry and tissue culture are preferred. Preferred applicants will have an advanced degree, including a Master’s degree or PhD. Under the supervision of the Principal Investigator, the Senior Research Associate will design experiments, prepare samples and perform laboratory experiments investing the urothelial stem/progenitor cell in the kidneys and bladder. There will be a specific emphasis on using cell sorting techniques and organoid forming assays to evaluate the progenitor capacity of urothelial subpopulations. The Senior Research Associate will perform routine experimental procedures on laboratory animals, harvest tissue and use a variety of skills including techniques in molecular biology, physiology, genetics, microscopy, and biochemistry. The Senior Research Associate will compile results, prepare reports/present findings; maintain supply inventory; maintain glassware & laboratory equipment; and perform routine clerical duties to ensure the laboratory is safe and appropriately supplied.
