The lab of Dr. Frederick Alt at Boston Children's Hospital is seeking an experienced Senior Lab Manager to manage both day-to-day lab operations and vital research work. The Alt lab seeks to understand mechanisms that maintain genomic stability in mammalian cells. They research programmed genetic recombination and hypermutation processes required for the generation of the immensely diverse antibody repertoires of immune cells known as B lymphocytes. The team's current focus is the active regulation of these processes within chromatin across antibody gene loci. They also study mechanisms that promote and prevent genetic translocations that can lead to lymphoid and other cancers. More information about the lab team and their work can be found by visiting
