    A position is available to assist in laboratory duties and research in an epigenetics laboratory in the department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the UC Davis School of Medicine. Research will focus on epigenetic investigations of autism spectrum disorders and possible transgenerational inheritance of epigenetic marks such as DNA methylation. The primary duty of the applicant will be to organize and manage the lab animal colonies housed in the Tupper Hall TRACS facility MS1A. These tasks will include the daily monitoring of multiple genetic strains, weaning of rodents, cutting tails for DNA samples, isolation of DNA and protein from tissue, genotyping by quantitative and regular PCR and analysis of proteins by Western blot analysis. A major part of the job will therefore be trouble shooting of PCR assays, DNA isolation protocols and Western blot assays. The candidate must perform daily documentation of work in a laboratory notebook and demonstrate meticulous database management of rodent colonies. The applicant will be required to dissect rodents for tissue collection and sample processing as well as collect blood from live rodents. The candidate will participate in performing or assisting in experiments to generate data and perform data analysis, and will receive training by post‐doctoral fellows, senior researchers, and the principal investigator in order to participate in the design, collection, and interpretation of data by looking at the data gathered from the experiment that has produced the data and evaluate the information in order to consult with the PI and senior researchers. Additional duties include tasks such as organizing sample information into spreadsheets, analysis of data under supervision as well as placing and tracking orders of lab reagents. Prior experience in rodent handling, rodent colony maintenance, DNA isolation, genotyping by PCR and placing orders using the UCD buys system is required as well as training in institutional policies and procedures regarding animal care. The candidate will be expected to attend lab meetings and when appropriate, will present data to their laboratory peers and will contribute to scholarly articles by providing their research findings, data, and write-ups on the work performed and may participate in writing manuscript portions in relation to their research findings. The candidate will review scholarly literature to improve or learn about methods for the project that are needed for ongoing projects and will participate in local conferences and joint lab meetings. The candidate will also provide University/public service by providing support in the over maintenance of the shared equipment in the laboratory and mentor undergraduate students in work and data analysis.

    Basic Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences, Genetics, Biochemistry, or a related field with at least 2 years of prior laboratory experience.

    Preferred Qualifications: Coursework and direct work experience with rodents as well as course work and direct work experience with genetic and molecular biology techniques. Computer skills pertaining to scientific data entry and database management such as Microsoft Excel are preferred. The candidate should have experience in developing or adapting experimental tools and assays. The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal communication, and decision-making skills; as well as the ability to work well independently and as part of a team and will exhibit a professional approach to work and attention to detail.

    Salary Range: Step I - $18.26 per hour or Step II - $19.48 per hour, commensurate with qualifications and experience.
