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

a full
time research histology technician starting July 1, 2002. The laboratory

on molecular genetic problems in the formation of brain. Multiple mouse
are used in the study of human disorders of brain development.

Questions that are being addressed fall into areas that range from cell
regulation to cell signaling and adhesion to motility and modulation of
neuronal cytoskeleton, working with genetic mouse models of human
disease. These
questions have relevance not only for human development but also for the

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
from paraffin embedded specimens, cryostat sectioning and vibratome
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 essential. The laboratory
heavily on the use of a semi-automated tissue staining apparatus for
throughput processing of slides and appropriate training can be
provided. Manual
processing will also be used for special applications.

Candidates should have a BA degree or equivalent and be a graduate of an

established histology technician training program with at least 2 years
postgraduate experience in either a medical diagnostic or research
More postgraduate experience is desirable. Salary level begins at
$40,000 and
can be adjusted according to the candidates level of experience.

Those interested should speak with Dr. Ross to explore a career in
research in the area of neurogenetics and brain development. Contact Dr.
