The Sheehan lab is a translational research lab focused on developing new therapies for individuals with sickle cell disease. We are seeking an individual to perform experiments in a sickle mouse model, and analyze the changes in red cells and other blood cells as a result to treatments. Some experiments may be performed in in vitro cell culture systems. Experience with cell culture, flow cytometry, and standard microbiology techniques is required. Mouse model experience is desirable, but we are able to train motivated individuals. The job entails performing a variety of defined research and laboratory tests independently. Experiments will be designed in collaboration with the principal investigator and independently. Scientific writing skills are required. The candidate will maintain records, files and logs of work performed in laboratory notebooks and computer databases, and perform simple statistical analyses with guidance, compile data and records results of studies for publications, grants and seminar presentations. Handling of human blood samples is required; proof of immunization is required and potentially additional immunizations may be needed.
