Research Assistant I, Yin Lab
The MDI Biological Laboratory seeks a highly motivated Research Assistant I to work in the laboratory of Dr. Voot Yin.
The Yin Lab studies the cell and molecular mechanism of heart regeneration and scar tissue resolution in zebrafish and mouse. An overarching theme shared by regenerating zebrafish and mouse hearts is the reliance on pro-proliferative signals released from nonmyocyte cells within the injury microenvironment. MicroRNAs are a class of noncoding RNAs that control expression of genetic circuits that shift the balance between regeneration and scar tissue mediated repair.
The ideal candidate will work as a part of a team to define how noncoding RNAs stimulate activation and release of intercellular signals important for zebrafish heart regeneration.
• College degree in biology or related discipline
• Highly motivated, able to work independently, and in a team environment
• Strong enthusiasm for developing new skills and expertise
• Excellent communication skills, verbal and written
