Job Description

The Laboratory of Dr. Cecilia Rodriguez-Furlan in the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) at Washington State University (WSU) is recruiting a research technician. This position is supported for 2 years with extensions of up to 5 years.

Research: Food and energy crops face increasingly challenging growth conditions that constrain development and negatively impact yield. At the cellular level, plants overcome stress by directing rapid degradation of key components through endocytic and autophagic processes. Balancing these two pathways is crucial for cell survival. Our lab employs molecular and cell biology approaches to understand these two pathways, including proteomics, genetics, advanced microscopy, and bioinformatics. The lab technician will be involved in molecular biology and proteomics activities.


•        Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in biology, science, molecular biology or relevant discipline

•        Excellent communication skills in both oral and written English are expected.

•        Previous experience in laboratory research is required.

•        Successful candidates will be expected to work collaboratively in the lab.

Research environment: Our laboratory has a diverse group of postdoc, graduate, and undergraduate researchers. In SBS, an environment of collaborative faculty work in diverse research fields, including physiology, organismal and evolutionary biology, population and ecological genetics, systematics, ecology, development, and reproduction. Plant science research at SBS is central to the larger plant science community across WSU. There are more than 80 plant research faculty members at WSU from at least eight departments across multiple colleges who converge in the molecular plant science program.
