The Hodges Lab in the Center for Precision Environmental Health is looking for a talented individual to join the team. The Research Technician II requires an individual who is self-motivated capable of independently preparing and organizing lab reagents, performing experiments, record keeping, and producing novel ideas. Research in the Hodges lab focuses on altered epigenetic function in cancer and other diseases. We use interdisciplinary approaches, including epigenomics, live-cell super-resolution imaging, genome editing, and chemical biology, to understand epigenetic systems in disease settings. Our research is especially focused on new technologies, for example, improving cell-culture tumor models, as well as single-cell and single-molecule methods.
