The Lane laboratory at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is looking to hire a full-time research technologist to start in early spring 2021. Our lab seeks to understand the cellular, molecular, and immunological mechanisms underlying upper airway inflammation and olfactory loss, with specific focuses on chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) and COVID-19. Ongoing projects include studying epithelium susceptibility and smell loss in COVID-19, developing sinonasal organoid models, characterizing mouse models of airway inflammation, and analyzing epithelium-immune system crosstalk.
The research technologist will primarily be responsible for processing patient tissue samples and maintaining cell culture, but are encouraged to assist with ongoing projects. Other duties include conducting experiments, collecting and analyzing data, and managing lab inventory. Previous Lane lab technologists have co-authored research papers and have matriculated to top medical and graduate schools.
A bachelor’s degree or equivalent is a minimum requirement, and previous research experience is highly recommended. An ideal applicant should be able to work independently and as part of a team, be self-motivated and organized, and have excellent communication skills.
Interested applicants should go to https://jobs.jhu.edu/ and apply to job req #46439. Applicants should attach a resume and a cover letter describing their motivations for joining the Lane Lab and any previous experiences that have prepared them for this position. We look forward to hearing from you!
