Basic knowledge of bioinformatics is a significant plus.

Qualified applicants will have exceptional organizational and communication skills, the ability to work both independently and cooperatively in a fast-paced team environment as well as a strong interest in technology development and for exploring the molecular basis of disease using in vivo models, genetics, and the latest genome editing/engineering technologies.
