Research Assistant I and Research Assistant II

The Laboratory for Translational Research in Osteoarthritis at Rush University Medical Center has positions available for experienced research assistants.

Our multidisciplinary group studies mechanisms of pain in osteoarthritis. We combine cartilage biochemistry, measurement of pain-related outcomes in a preclinical model of osteoarthritis, immunohistochemistry, cell culture, neuroanatomical techniques and imaging in order to investigate structural correlates to joint pain and characterize sensory neurons that contribute to symptoms. 

We are looking for enthusiastic and collaborative candidates with experience working with rodents. The ideal candidates will also have experience with molecular biology, cell culture, immunohistochemistry, and/or imaging.

If you are interested in this position, please send a CV and questions to: Dr. Malfait or Dr. Miller.
