Rockefeller University Research Assistant (Salary Range: $46K-$50K) in New York, New York
Job Title Research Assistant (Salary Range: $46K-$50K)
Laboratory / Department Chen Laboratory
Research in our lab centers on ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, a diverse group of membrane proteins integral to almost every biological process. In prokaryotes, these proteins are critical for survival. In humans, ABC transporters make up one of the largest gene families, and more than a dozen genetic diseases have been traced to ABC transporter defects. ABC transporters are also central to multidrug resistance in many pathogenic bacteria and in tumor cells. By pursing structural and mechanistic studies of ABC transporters, we hope to understand how nature utilizes the chemical energy of ATP hydrolysis to perform work - transporting substrates against their chemical gradients.
The Laboratory of Membrane Biology and Biophysics is seeking a motivated, creative scientist to join our research team. We study the physicochemical principles underlying antigen processing against viruses and tumor cells, multidrug resistance in chemotherapy, and the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The primary area of research for this position is to perform high-throughput screening to identify ligands with therapeutic potential and to characterize their mode of action by variety of biochemical and biophysical methods. Targeted salary is $46,000 to $50,000.
Bachelor's degree required. Experience in molecular biology and cell culture techniques is required. Candidate must be a strong team player, with excellent organizational and communicational skills, and a willingness to learn new techniques.
