Laboratory Technician Position Available

A full-time position is available in my lab working on an NSF funded 
project looking at recruitment and population genetics of the gorgonian 
Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae in  the Bahamas.   The work will be 
conducted in Buffalo with biannual field trips.  The technician will 
conduct microsatellite analyses of gorgonian tissue samples. Tasks will 
include DNA extraction, PCR, gel quantification and genotyping using a 
LiCor DNA sequencer.  The work also will include general laboratory 
tasks such as maintaining stock supplies, record keeping and ordering 
supplies, and supervising undergraduate work-study students.  Applicants 
should have a Master's degree or equivalent experience. 

Fieldwork will involve research diving from research vessels or small 
boats, and the work will include collecting samples, P. elisabethae 
population surveys and monitoring recruitment experiments.  The 
assistant must be able to meet University at Buffalo and AAUS standards 
for certification as a research diver and have a minimum of 25 logged 
open water dives.   (In addition to  SCUBA certification applicants 
should have current certification in CPR, first aid, oxygen delivery and 
be able to pass a medical exam for diving.)

Applicants should have documentation of valid U.S. work authorization.
