The laboratory of Dr. Sarah Andres at the Pape Family Pediatric Research Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR is seeking a research assistant to help in our exciting work delineating mechanisms for human milk in promoting intestinal barrier function and maturation. We are looking for dynamic, organized, self-starters with a bachelor’s degree to help us make new discoveries. Experience in a lab setting with molecular and/or cell biology, mouse models, and/or conducting experiments are desired. An interest in biomedical research, post-graduate training, and acquiring research-related skills is desired. You can help us identify biological components of human milk that reduce inflammation in necrotizing enterocolitis. You will get training and experience with genetic mouse models, human patient samples, including novel 3D patient-derived enteroids, and cutting-edge molecular biology, extracellular vesicles, -omics approaches, and imaging techniques to answer critical questions. Our translational research bridges the divide between basic mechanistic research and patient care. In addition to basic research skills training, our team prioritizes training in career development. Come learn and discover with us!
The Research Assistant will preform routine laboratory procedures and maintain standard laboratory documents.
