Cedars-Sinai Research Associate I - AGCT Core in Los Angeles, California
The Applied Genomics, Computation and Translational Core (AGCT) is looking for a Research Associate I to join the group. As an integral member of this team, you will perform bench work related to genomic experiments such as, next generation sequencing, high throughput qPCR and sample management
The AGCT Core is focused on gathering genome, transcriptome, epigenome and metagenome information for investigators. Our mission is to make these complex technologies accessible and biologically interpretable for clinical and basic research scientists.
The AGCT Core enables investigators with little experience in sample preparation, quality control or analysis to interrogate the genome. To facilitate this, we have developed general but complete wet-lab and bioinformatics analysis pipelines to accommodate standard needs and enable most genomewide investigations. For more sophisticated or custom designs, we work actively in collaboration with other Cedars-Sinai cores and resources to facilitate investigations.
Under direct supervision, you will:
Conduct additional general molecular biology experiments such as RNA/DNA isolation, cDNA synthesis, PCR, RT-PCR, ligation, and restriction digests
Conduct basic QC analysis
Operate automated fluidics systems such as epMotion, platforms for QC including Agilent, qubit, nanodrop, qPCR platforms including Fluidigm, ABI open access and other genomic platforms
- Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts Degree in biological sciences preferred
Experience and understanding of general research objectives.
Working knowledge of database management, personal computers, and presentation and imaging software.
Understanding of general research objectives.
Familiarity with routine laboratory procedures and experimental protocols.
Possess computer skills to include, but not limited to, Excel and Word.
