Graduate Student (External)- Grill Lab
|Department Name:||Neuroscience - FL|
|Position Type:||Full Time|
|Position Title||Graduate Student (External)- Grill Lab|
|Position Summary:|| |
An open position is available in the Grill lab at The Scripps Research Institute, Florida. The Grill lab pioneered the use of C. elegans to identify regulators of opioid receptor signaling (Wang et al, Science, 2019). By combining forward genetics, whole genome sequencing, and CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing the candidate will identify genes that influence opioid-induced behavior. A small subset of mutants that affect behavioral tolerance to repeated opioid exposure will also be studied. The candidate will become proficient in automated behavioral assays we have developed to monitor responses to opioids. The Grill lab has entered an exciting new phase in this groundbreaking line of research. Join us!
