The Bazurto lab at the University of Minnesota is looking for a lab technician AND a postdoc to study metabolic toxins in the model bacterium Methylobacterium extorquens using genetics, biochemistry, genomics, and proteomics.
As a lab technician, ~75% of the time will be spent doing independent research (cloning, bacterial genetics, growth experiments, protein purifications, assays). The remaining time will be divided between training undergrads at the bench (~20%) and lab managerial tasks (~5%).
As a postdoc, someone who is excited about microbial physiology with a strong background in microbial genetics and/or biochemistry, AND is also invested in applying global approaches such as TnSeq and proteomics, would be ideal!
