Location: Little Rock, AR

A research technician position is available in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The laboratory is particularly interested in studying DNA repair pathway in mammalian system. Our research aims to understand how Chromatin-based DNA damage response (DDR) pathway orchestrates and regulates cellular responses to DNA double strand break and replication stress. We combine proteomics and genetics approaches with methods within cell biology, biochemistry and live cell imaging to identify new DNA repair proteins and functionally characterize signaling responses and mechanism that maintain genome stability in mammalian cells. The precise contents of the projects will be decided upon discussions with the selected candidate.  The successful candidate will be responsible for performing research, general lab maintenance and orderings. He/She will also be responsible for conducting research using molecular biology, cell biology and biochemical approaches to understand the fundamental regulation behind DNA repair. For consideration, please send the following: Cover letter, CV and name of references to Dr. Justin Leung (uams.edu">jwleung(at)uams.edu)


Principal Responsibilities:

    Molecular biology approaches working with DNA, RNA, and proteins.

    Basic cell culture and protein purification

    Cell biology including Western blotting and Immunostaining.

    Live imaging of cells using microscopy.

    General lab organization.


Preferred Qualifications:

    We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious candidate with

    Ph.D or Master degree in Cell Biology or Biochemistry related research.

    Experience with molecular biology techniques

   Ability to record, manage data files and coordinate assignments on a day to-day basis. 

   And open-minded and enthusiastic personality and good collaboration skills
