The Beckstead Lab is looking for a Senior Research Technician or a Research Assistant to conduct basic research on aging, neurodegeneration, and reward-related brain pathways in mice. Primary duties will include performing immunohistochemistry on mouse brain sections and fluorescent imaging/microscopy with the assistance of the OMRF imaging core.

Duties will also include maintaining mouse colonies, including husbandry of genetically-modified lines, monitoring the diet of some groups of mice, and simple genotyping with PCR. Secondary duties (as time permits) will include assisting with performing behavioral experiments, including operant drug self-administration experiments, locomotor and other assays, assisting with the ordering of supplies and reagents, and other supportive lab duties. Secondary duties may eventually be expanded to include performing survival surgeries on rodents (including jugular catheter implantation, virus injections, and cannulae placement).
