Under direct supervision, the Research Assistant I position is part of a multidisciplinary team studying epigenetics, chromatin structure, and gene expression. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, performing techniques related to cell and molecular biology and biochemistry. Tasks include maintenance of tissue, DNA, and other experimental samples, as well as taking part in data analysis and experimental planning. Other duties include assisting with general laboratory maintenance, including equipment maintenance, and ordering of supplies, etc.
The Dixon Lab seeks to interrogate the role of 3D genome architecture and chromatin regulation in both normal cellular biology and in cancer initiation and progression. Harnessing the power of genomic tools and advances in genome-engineering, we are investigating the relationship between TADs (topologically-associating domains) and subsequent gene expression. The lab is also actively involved in a multiple of ongoing collaborative projects. By integrating genomic approaches, we aim to uncover insights about the structural and epigenetic landscape of cancer progression beyond standard cytogenetic approaches. Successful candidates will be eager to acquire experimental knowledge to leverage next-generation sequencing techniques and answer fundamental biological questions.
