BRIEF JOB OVERVIEW: Under the general direction of Dr. Vasanth Vedantham, the incumbent will perform scientific research experiments related to various research projects for the supervisors research program. These include both in vitro and in vivo experiments relating to heart rhythm. The individual's responsibilities will include: independently performing laboratory research experiments, performing mouse surgeries to implant transmitters, managing a mouse colony, imaging using confocal and light sheet microsroscopy, and preparation of libraries for single cell sequencing technologies, and general lab maintenance. Although the candidate will have her or his own dedicated research project, s(he) will also assist other lab members in lab maintenance duties including PCR genotyping, mouse colony maintenance, and assisting the principal investigator and lab manager in all laboratory matters when needed.

The individual must perform microscopy (conventional immunofluorescence, confocal, and light sheet) of fixed cells, tissue sections, mouse embryos, and mouse hearts. The individual will perform basic molecular and biochemical assays for RNA/DNA detection using PCR, RT-PCR and Western Blotting, isolation of RNA/DNA, and protein from cells and animal tissue, ELISA, and cloning. The individual may also perform cell culture experiments involving transfection and analysis of reporter gene activity and promoter activity in cells.

Physiological and Imaging Data Analysis, and Writing (40%)
A major part of the lab s effort involves analysis of physiological data sets obtained with implantable transmitters and other types of physiological studies in mice. Specific types of analysis might include defining electrocardiographic intervals, identification of arrhythmias from EKG data, higher-order analysis including heart rate variability and power spectra. In addition, 3D reconstruction and quantification of microscopy images including those from whole mount light sheet microscopy as well as confocal microscopy of tissue sections will be required. The incumbent will also be responsible for preparing figures and manuscripts for publication or presentation at meetings.

Lab management (20%)
