I have a new histologist position in research on foot-and-mouth disease and vesicular stomatitis pathogenesis work at Plum Island on the east end of Long Island, NY. I need someone to maintain a small pathology lab and do a wide variety of staining procedures from routine H&E, cryosections, immunohistochemisty, to TEM and in-situ hybridization or PCR. Wide experience would be nice but not required. I am willing to train a willing histotech.
