A Research Technician II position is available in the Parkhurst lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  A hallmark of many diseases and cancers is a dysfunctional cytoskeleton.  A properly functioning cytoskeleton is needed for a wide variety of cellular events ranging from cell shape to cell signaling and migration/metastasis. The Parkhurst lab uses multidisciplinary approaches to study dynamic cytoskeleton processes in the regulation of normal developmental events and when mis-regulated in diseases/cancer.  

 

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate interested in the topic of nuclear envelope budding/organization using the Drosophila model system.
