Research Assistant II – Brain Organoid Engineering

We are looking for research assistant to join the CircaVent team in Dr. George Church’s laboratory. CircaVent combines computational drug prediction with human brain organoids to identify drugs that could treat the underlying causes of bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions. We are using different organoid models of the brain for screening novel treatments and we hope to gain better insights on alternative treatment strategies for mood disorders.

Reporting to the Senior Staff Scientist and Director, you will support these studies, learn cutting edge in vitro and stem cell techniques, and contribute to developing new protocols for downstream analysis. This includes adaptation of neural organoid cultures to microelectrode arrays and high content imaging. The ideal candidate is comfortable learning and doing different types of tasks within the same week, has had diverse research experiences, and works well within a team. [65843BR]
