We are looking for a technician with a background in Cellular Biology and Molecular Biology to join the Molecular Neuroscience Unit at the OIST.

Basic computer skills are required; familiarity with statistical software (prism or R) is preferable.
The successful applicant is expected to operate as support figure in the laboratory and to lead an independent line of research. Our main focus is the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the correct localization of signaling complexes by molecular transport and/or local protein synthesis and how this affects neuronal homeostasis and pathology.
