Description
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Department: Pediatrics, Section of Developmental Biology

Job Title: Open Rank Laboratory Sciences Professional - Mosimann Lab

Position #: 00819994 – Requisition #: 32628

Job Summary:

A position as a Laboratory Sciences Professional (open rank) is available within the Mosimann research laboratory in the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Developmental Biology, at the University of Colorado Denver-Anschutz Medical Campus. This is a full-time (1.0FTE) position that will utilize molecular, biochemical, genetic, imaging and bioinformatic/computational approaches in a wet lab setting.

The Mosimann lab studies the formation of the heart, blood, and blood vessels as well as their developmentally related cell types using zebrafish as principal model. As a Laboratory Sciences Professional in our lab, you will work closely with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to support their projects, as well as pursue individual lines of research. The work is highly flexible and variable and includes standard molecular biology techniques (PCR, subcloning, gel electrophoresis), microscopy (fluorescence and confocal microscopy), transgenesis techniques, and basic computational/bioinformatic analyses. Commensurate with increased expertise, you will be given the opportunity to work more independently on projects using state-of-the-art methods such as scRNAseq and scMultiome analyses, transgenesis, CRISPR-Cas9, and more.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Provide general support to laboratory staff and PI.
  • Order reagents and materials and oversee inventory.
  • Maintain laboratory stocks and buffers.
  • Maintain laboratory records, supplies, samples in an organized manner.
  • Maintain the laboratory and equipment in working and clean condition.
  • Maintain laboratory compliance with environmental health and safety regulations.
  • Collect, accurately record, and analyze data in conjunction with research staff.
  • Utilize, care for, and maintain zebrafish for research.
  • Perform standard molecular/biochemical assays, including PCR, cloning, gel electrophoresis, and western blots.
  • Perform in situ RNA hybridization and immunohistochemistry.
  • Perform microscopic analyses and basic imaging.
  • Use standard bioinformatic/computational tools to analyze data sets
  • Additional responsibilities related to the position as assigned by PI

Why Join Us:

The Mosimann research group is part of a highly cohesive, productive academic unit in the Section of Developmental Biology within the Department of Pediatrics. The Section of Developmental Biology is committed to research that improves child health with five main objectives:
  • Understand the genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms that guide normal development.
  • Determine how normal developmental processes are altered to result in developmental disease and disability.
  • Identify new diagnostic strategies and molecular and cellular therapies targeted at treatment of childhood disease.
  • Train the next generation of leaders in developmental and stem cell biology and pediatric disease research.
  • Serve as a hub for basic and translational child health research that spans the Anschutz Medical Campus research community.

To accomplish these objectives the faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral trainees and research staff who comprise the Section of Developmental Biology perform research using stem cell, organoid and animal experimental models, including Drosophila, zebrafish and mice. Our investigations focus on several major tissue and organ systems such as the brain, heart, intestine, face and vascular, olfactory and immune systems. Our work is leading to a better understanding of childhood disabilities associated with neuropsychiatric disease, Down syndrome, the congenital basis of cardiovascular and facial malformations and the impact of maternal health on fetal development.

The University of Colorado offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, retirement plans, tuition benefits, ECO pass, paid time off – vacation, sick, holidays, and more.
