Full-Time Laboratory Position Available

Posted on behalf of David Toczyski, a professor of the Department of Biochemistry and Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCSF. This is an opportunity for a student graduating in Spring 2021.


I am currently hiring a graduating student into a full time position to work in my laboratory at UCSF studying cell cycle regulation. The work is a combination of biochemistry and tissue culture. You will be using Mass spectrometry and/or CRISPR screening to characterize ubiquitin ligases. You must have some experience doing undergraduate research. However, the exact topic of the research is not important, as long as it is some aspect of cell biology, molecular biology, or genetics. This is a perfect position for someone looking to go to graduate school in a few years. It is a fun, dynamic lab with a mix of students and postdocs.

The start date of the position is, ideally, May–June, however we would consider someone earlier than that. This would be a good position for someone who wants to go to grad school. In fact, most of my previous graduate students have gone on to graduate school, and it has been great experience for that.

Please email me if you wish to apply. Include the department from which you are graduating, your GPA, and the name and contact info of the lab in which you worked, as well as the dates you work there and 2-3 sentences describing the work.

Please put “SRA” into the subject line when you email me at dpt4darwin@gmail.com.

Nuclear & Radiochemistry Undergraduate Summer School

The U.S. Department of Energy and the American Chemical Society, Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, sponsor an INTENSIVE 6-week course (June 14, 2021 – July 23, 2021) in Nuclear and Radiochemistry for undergraduates held in San Jose, CA or Long Island, NY with 12 students each.

The course consists of lectures on the fundamentals of nuclear science, radiochemistry, and their applications in related fields. Laboratory work introduces state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation used in basic and applied nuclear science. Also included are a Guest Lecture Series and tours of nearby research centers at universities, National Laboratories, and other nuclear facilities. Students meet and interact with prominent faculty and scientists who are working in nuclear and radiochemistry, nuclear medicine, nuclear forensics, and related fields.

Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. Provided are a stipend of $4000, all tuition and fees, housing, transportation to and from the Summer School location, books, and laboratory supplies. Transferable college credit is awarded through the ACS accredited chemistry programs at San Jose State University (7 units) or the State University of New York at Stony Brook (6 units).

For additional information, view the program flyer or email questions to Dr. Lynn Francesconi (lfrances@hunter.cuny.edu).

The application deadline is February 1, 2021.
