A laboratory technician position is available to assist research in wildlife population genetics, genomics, and disease ecology. The position will be primarily lab-based within the Ernest Wildlife Genomics and Disease Ecology Laboratory in the Department of Veterinary Sciences which has affiliations with the University of Wyoming (UW) Graduate Program in Ecology.

The Wildlife Genomics and Disease Ecology (Ernest) Lab at University of Wyoming, Laramie, is focused on enhancing wildlife conservation, population health, and management through collaborative research, education, and public outreach in the disciplines of genomics, landscape & conservation genetics, and disease ecology.

The technician will be responsible for lab work, including  assisting other lab members with research and responsibilities may include supervising and mentoring undergraduate students.  Lab work may involve genomic (next gen sequence data generation and analysis) and genetic (microsatellite) to examine landscape-level genetic diversity, population structure, and population health/disease of wildlife species in the Rocky Mountain West and California. Projects will involve species of current focus in our lab (see our website). Work will involve processing samples, entering data into electronic data bases, maintaining lab safety procedures, equipment and reagents, and more. This position will contribute to graduate students’ and lab’s research on genomics and population health of pronghorn, mule deer, hummingbird, sea otter, black bear, and/or other species, as well as aspects of wildlife population health and/or disease ecology. Responsibilities may also include contributing to data analysis, manuscript writing for peer-reviewed publication, grant-writing, and development of oral and poster presentations of research. Desire to assist in lab management is a plus.
