The Genomics Core is looking for a Research Associate I to join the group.
The Genomics Core is focused on gathering genome, transcriptome, epigenome and metagenome information for investigators. Our mission is to make these complex technologies accessible and biologically interpretable for clinical and basic research scientists.
The Genomics Core enables investigators with little experience in sample preparation, quality control or analysis to interrogate the genome. To facilitate this, we have developed general but complete wet-lab and bioinformatics analysis pipelines to accommodate standard needs and enable most genomewide investigations. For more sophisticated or custom designs, we work actively in collaboration with other Cedars-Sinai cores and resources to facilitate investigations.
The Research Associate I will perform bench work related to genomic experiments such as, next generation sequencing, high throughput qPCR and sample management.
Conduct additional general molecular biology experiments such as RNA/DNA isolation, cDNA synthesis, PCR, RT-PCR, ligation, and restriction digests
Conduct basic QC analysis
Operate automated fluidics systems such as epMotion, platforms for QC including Agilent, qubit, nanodrop, qPCR platforms including Fluidigm, ABI open access and other genomic platforms.
Providing healthcare for more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai has evolved into one of the most dynamic and highly renowned medical centers in the world. Along with caring for patients, Cedars-Sinai is a hub for biomedical research and a training center for future physicians and other healthcare professionals. This attracts exceptional talent to Cedars-Sinai, including world-renowned physician-scientists who seek a place where they can both conduct research and see patients--the ideal formula for discovery and its translation into cures. Our patients benefit from access to doctors at the top of their fields, and our researchers have an ideal community in which to study the impact of healthcare challenges, and reflect that knowledge in their research. The greater Los Angeles area in which Cedars-Sinai resides possesses unparalleled cultural and ethnic diversity which offers outstanding opportunities for translational and clinical research... and a dynamic environment for medical education.Although community based, Cedars-Sinai is a major teaching hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Cedars-Sinai has highly competitive graduate medical education programs in more than 50 specialty and subspecialty areas, a graduate program in biomedical sciences and translational medicine, a clinical scholars program directed towards junior physicians with aspirations to become clinical scientists, and post graduate training opportunities.There are more than 250 full-time faculty members at Cedars-Sinai. The voluntary medical staff, comprised of more than 2,200 specialty board-certified or board-qualified physicians, represent all of the specialties and subspecialties and collaborate with full-time medical staff in the teaching responsibilities of the graduate medical education programs.
