Responsibilities






A molecular genotyping laboratory that performs state of the art genotyping methodologies for disease association studies is looking for an exceptionally skilled, experienced molecular and/or sequencing technician.  The laboratory collaborates with local and international labs to carry out anthropological, clinical, and basic disease studies that are aimed at a better understanding and development of data and tools for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of human diseases.
