job opportunity, Cornell

From:Colleen Forster

Fellow histonetters,

Here is a great job opportunity for someone who likes to do IHC
staining. My lab is moving to Cornell University in Manhattan.
I have worked with this doctor for 6 years and will really miss her.
She is great to work for/with.If anyone is interested you can contact
Dr. Ross at the numbers below.If you have any specfic questions about
my position feel free to call on me at 612-626-2477 or email at

A position is available at the Medical College of Cornell University for

a full time research histology technician. The laboratory works on
molecular genetic problems in the formation of brain. Multiple mouse
models are
used in the study of human disorders of brain development.

 Questions that are being addressed fall into areas that range from cell

cycle regulation to cell signaling and adhesion to motility and
modulation of the
 neuronal cytoskeleton, working with genetic mouse models of human
disease. These questions have relevance not only for human development
but also
for the study of epilepsy and behavioral disorders.

 While a background in neurobiology is desirable, it is not necessary.
Skills are sought in the fixation and blocking of tissue, production of
tissue sections from paraffin embedded specimens, cryostat sectioning
vibratome sectioning. Standard histological stains such as hematoxylin
and eosin will be used. Experience in immunohistochemical labeling of
antigens in
tissue sections using HRP and Fluorescence detection methods is
 Applicants must have an ability and willingness to continually
troubleshoot and optimize staining protocols as new antigens are
examined in the
projects. The laboratory relies heavily on the use of a semi-automated
tissue staining apparatus for high throughput processing of slides and
appropriate training can be provided. Manual processing will also be
used for special

 Candidates should have a BA degree or equivalent and be a graduate of
an established Histology Technician Training program with at least 2
of postgraduate experience in either a medical diagnostic or research
 laboratory. More postgraduate experience is desirable. Salary level
begin at $28,000 and can be adjusted according to the candidateÍs level

 Those interested should speak with Dr. Ross to explore a career in
histology research in the area of neurogenetics and brain development.
Contact Dr. Ross at 212-746-5533 or at 612-626-2499. She can also be
reached by e-mail at  or .
