Research Specialist Positions

Department of Biomolecular Engineering: Research Specialist, Stem Cell Genomics

The Department of Biomolecular Engineering invites applications for two Junior Specialist positions, under the direction of Professor Daniel Kim. The successful candidates will support and assist in research that uses genomic and single cell approaches to understand the functions of noncoding RNAs in stem cells and epigenetic reprogramming. Responsibilities will include culturing human pluripotent stem cells, sample preparation for next-generation sequencing, and data analysis. The candidates will also make scholarly contributions to the research program through the preparation of scientific manuscripts and/or meeting presentations. The candidates will be able to learn new techniques and implement protocols with attention to detail, have strong written and verbal communication skills, exercise good time management and problem-solving skills, and consistently work effectively in a team environment.

We are particularly interested in identifying candidates with extensive experience working with human pluripotent stem cells, next-generation sequencing, and noncoding RNAs.
