The Research Scientist II will be responsible for studying the means by which neurons control mitochondria to support the energy requirements of neurotransmission, and the mechanisms which fail when mitochondria become involved in neuropathologies. Specifically, the candidate will be expected to create transgenic and CRISPR/Cas9 engineered Drosophila as an approach to elucidating the mechanisms that control mitochondrial association with the plasma membrane, and the roles that these mechanisms might play in aging and disease. The candidate is expected to spend as much as 75% of their time planning/conducting experiments, analyzing data and describing the research in manuscripts. As a senior member of the laboratory, the candidate might spend up to 25% of their time engaged in lab managerial activities and training more junior lab members.
