Research Assistant

What: Research assistant needed for projects in the Departments of Biochemistry and Drug Discovery at MUSC. Projects involve chemical synthesis, enzyme kinetics, and microbiology. A strong background in chemistry / biochemistry is preferred, but a strong desire to learn may be a suitable substitute. This is currently an unpaid opportunity, but if the student remains on the project long-term and contributes significantly to its success, it will present opportunities for authorship on abstracts and in peer-reviewed publications.
Please Contact: Jonathan Turner (MD PhD candidate at MUSC, for information.

Volunteer Research Position Opening

What: Year-long research volunteer opportunity. Our research aims to understand the molecular concepts and mechanisms which underlie common cancer susceptibility. We use advanced genomic research techniques (CRISPR-Cas9) to discover risk alleles in the non-coding portion of the genome. Our research symbolizes an emerging paradigm in cancer biology and treatment; advanced genetic studies will allow prophylactic treatment before cancer arises.

Where: Medical University of South Carolina in the laboratory of Dr. Bart Smits

To Apply: Qualified applicants should have a strong interest in genetics/genomics, a competitive GPA and ability to work well as a team. Please email if interested. Attach your resume’/CV (with list of coursework) to your email.
