Rockefeller University Research Assistant in New York, New York
Job Title Research Assistant
Laboratory / Department Laboratory of Single Cell Genomics and Population Dynamics
The Laboratory of Single-cell Genomics and Population Dynamics investigates how a cell population maintains homeostasis at whole-organism scale and how it is disrupted in cancer and aging-related disorders. Our primary approach is to develop state-of-the-art genomic techniques to profile and perturb cell dynamics at single-cell resolution. Our long-term goal is to leverage this knowledge to develop cell-type-specific engineering tools that enhance cell population robustness or restore cell population homeostasis in response to cancer and aging-related disorders.
The Research Assistant will be involved with the development of single-cell genomic profiling techniques and help other lab members on the research project progression. Additional responsibilities include the routine management of lab mice and supplies (including status assessment of lab animals through weekly maintenance), maintenance and repair of laboratory equipment, and maintenance of reagents and supply inventory within department procedure.
