An Associate Specialist position is open in the Whiteman Laboratory at UC-Berkeley. Under the general supervision of Professor Whiteman, this position will lead projects that use and develop genome editing tools in drosophilids flies, including Scaptomyza species which lay their eggs in leaves. In addition, this position will help lead experiments in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, and Drosophila chemosensory neurophysiology.
The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus - envisioned as a "City of Learning" - was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Today the world's premier public university and a wellspring of innovation, UC Berkeley occupies a 1,232 acre campus with a sylvan 178-acre central core. From this home its academic community makes key contributions to the economic and social well-being of the Bay Area, California, and the nation.
