A research technician position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Gaurav Varshney, which is located in the Genes & Human Disease. We are looking for a highly motivated, passionate, and independent individual with excellent interpersonal skills to play a key role in advancing the lab's mission.

The Varshney lab is focused on tackling the challenge of systematically validating the flood of human candidate disease genes identified in various genome- wide association (GWAS) and whole-exome sequencing studies by developing disease models in zebrafish.

Technicians will use zebrafish and the emerging genomic technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9, single-cell genomics to understand the disease pathology of candidate disease genes. Our research interests span multiple disciplines: genetics, genomics, molecular biology, and developmental biology.
