Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Location: Hyde Park Campus
1) Lead a research projects to study roles of RNA splicing regulators, epigenetic regulators and their targets in brain development using molecular biology, cell biology, in utero electroporation and super resolution imaging
2) Support the primary focus of the team which is to produce and analyze integrated data sets from high-throughput biological profiling technologies including RNA-Seq, single cell sequencing, CRISPR/Cas9 on cultured primary cells, cell lines and organoids
3) Predictive analytics are then developed and used to better define the role of non-coding variation in disease processes including gene dysregulation in the human brain that is correlated with neurodevelopmental disorders
4) Train students and fellows in new technologies and standard methods in molecular biology and biochemistry such as DNA isolation, PCR, rtPCR, northern and western blotting, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, molecular cloning, super resolution imaging, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, DNA sequencing, and Illumina DNA sequencing library preparation.
5) Analyze both molecular biology and computational high throughput genomics data, interpret results
1) Successful development of multifaceted research projects
2) Collaboration and communication
