We seek a motivated and organized individual to join the Lyons Lab (https://www.lyonslab.org/) at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (https://scripps.ucsd.edu/) to serve as lab manger and research assistant. The individual will assist the lab in funded projects on molluscan neurodevelopment, developmental gene regulatory networks, and biomineralization. The successful candidate will be responsible for lab organization, inventories, safety protocols, and care of colonies of marine invertebrates. In addition, the individual will conduct lab research such as PCR/cloning, in situ hybridization, microinjection/electroporation, collection of embryonic samples for RNAseq/ATAC-seq/scRNAseq, and microscopy. Previous experience with the above techniques, particularly research with embryos of marine invertebrates, is preferred but not required. The successful candidate will have exceptional organizational and record-keeping skills and will serve as a collaborator with other lab members. The Lyons Lab is dedicated to building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive lab culture. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a department at U.C.
