Description

The Department of Biobehavioral Health (BBH) in the College of Health and Human Development seeks a Lab Technologist to provide support to Dr. Kyle Murdock for research studies that will be conducted in his laboratory (https://sites.psu.edu/drives/). The main responsibilities of this position include performing biological assays that will require specific training (i.e., evaluation of mitochondrial dysfunction). Other lab-related duties include receiving and transporting biologic specimens, management of data and samples, attending biweekly journal club meetings, and assisting other staff. Typically requires a Bachelor's degree or higher plus one year of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. Prior experience in a research lab is highly preferred. Individuals seeking experiences that will assist with graduate school applications will be particularly competitive for this position (e.g., an individual with a Bachelor’s degree taking a gap year or two before applying to graduate school). Candidates for this position should possess general/basic bench skills and laboratory techniques, as well as strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively in a team. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding.
