Subject: Field & Lab Technician needed, U. New Mexico
The Rudgers & Whitney Labs at the University of New Mexico are looking for a technician / supervisor to work on projects related to the ecology and evolution of plant-microbe-animal interactions.
Duties will include work in both field and laboratory settings on projects examining the ecology and evolution of plants, plant-animal and plant-microbe interactions. Position includes lab management and training/working with our undergraduate team. Candidates should have B.A./B.S. in biology (or related field) and some hands-on field and/or lab experience. Training will be provided, but experience with DNA techniques (PCR, sequencing), plant care and greenhouse maintenance, plant identification and vegetation sampling, insect identification, soil science, and/or microbial methods is a bonus. The position is full-time and term-limited (12-36 months). This position would be an excellent fit for someone planning on graduate study in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, as there will be the opportunity to gain experience in a number of research areas and to co-author papers.
