Default RNAi screening center opens up at Harvard Med School



We are openning a public center for performing full-genome RNAi screens
in Drosophila. To characterize gene functions on a genome-wide scale in
Drosophila, we have generated in collaboration with Dr. Renato Paro's
group (Heidelberg, Germany) a library of double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs)
directed against all predicted open reading frames. This resource can
now be used to conduct high-throughput cell-based RNA interference
(RNAi) screens to identify genes involved in various assays. The goal
of the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center (DRSC) is to make this
technology available to the community and to provide a central database
of RNAi screening results in Drosophila.

For further information about the DRSC, please visit our website at

Default job: Research technician


Positions for Research Technicians
The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics
Indiana University, Bloomington

The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics at Indiana University,
Bloomington, carries out research in functional genomics and
bioinformatics, working both autonomously and in collaboration with
faculty. The CGB is expanding to create a new NIH-funded Drosophila
Genomics Resource Center (DGRC) that will produce research materials and
carry out exploratory studies on behalf of the Drosophila research
community nationally.

In connection with the DGRC, the CGB has immediate openings for several
technical staff. Successful applicants will assist CGB scientists in
producing, testing, and distributing DNA microarrays, maintaining and
distributing an important archive of DNA molecules, and growing and
distributing cell lines. They will also assist in research projects
associated with these efforts.

The ideal candidate will have a B.S. or M.S. in Biology or Biochemistry
and some laboratory experience in molecular biology, cell biology, or
genomics. However, candidates with degrees in other scientific fields
will be considered. Given a good scientific background, enthusiasm,
interest in the projects, and reliability will weigh more heavily than the
field of the degree.

The CGB is a growing research center that is part of an active and
expanding research community in the life sciences. Seee our website
([Only registered users see links. ]) for more details about our ongoing activities and
collaborations.

Both positions are open now and applications will be accepted until the
positions are filled. Those received by September 1 will be assured full
consideration.

Please submit a cv and a description of your background and interests, and
arrange that 3 letters of recommendation be sent directly to: Genomics
Search, Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics, Indiana University, 1001
E. 3rd St., Bloomington, IN 47405-3700. Indiana University is an
affirmative action equal opportunity employer.
