We are currently looking for an enthusiastic, scientifically curious Glasswash Laboratory Assistantto work in the lab ofDr. Andrew Dillin at the University of California, Berkeley in Berkeley, California. The Dillin lab has broken down the barriers of metazoan aging to reveal that this process is coordinated across the multiple cell types and not merely left to stochastic chance by each individual cell. Their findings not only reveal which cells perform the coordination, but also the molecules required for communicating aging across cells types and their downstream consequences. Approaches include genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology. For more information about the Dillin lab, please visit
