The School of Biological Sciences in the College of Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for immediate openings for three full-time, non-tenure track faculty positions as a prosthetic and orthotic instructor for our nationally renowned Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics Program (MSPO).
A laboratory technician position is available in Dr. Liang Han’s laboratory in the School of Biological Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Han’s group uses a combination of molecular genetic, immunohistochemical, fluorescence imaging and behavioral approaches to understand how the nervous system receives, transmits and interprets various stimuli to induce physiological and behavioral responses. We are interested in the basic mechanisms underlying somatosensation, including pain, itch and mechanical sensations. We are also working on the role of the nervous system underlying chronic respiratory diseases.
The Ratcliff lab at Georgia Tech is looking to hire a full-time laboratory technician to work on the evolution of multicellularity in ‘snowflake’ yeast. This person will primarily assist a postdoc on experiments examining: 1) the evolution of extremely large size (thousands of cells, easily visible to the naked eye) in snowflake yeast, 2) the role of oxygen in the evolution of multicellular complexity, and 3) how geometric constraints can interact with pre-existing cell biology to give rise to simple multicellular development.
