Hello Mimulus community,
I am sorry to have missed the extravaganza! But I have something to contribute, namely one full-time, one-year (maybe two depending on NSF) lab tech position in my lab at Whitman College. If you know a recently-graduated undergraduate with good molecular skills, please send them my way. It will be a fun research project with lots of independence and should hopefully lead to a publication. Here is the ad. Thanks!!
Seeking a full-time laboratory technician to carry out research on the molecular basis of repeated evolution:
The successful candidate will work with me for one year to design and implement functional tests of candidate genes for the regulation of floral pigmentation in the Chilean monkeyflower (Mimulus). Renewal contingent upon funding and job performance.
• a Bachelor’s degree in Biology or a related discipline

• attention to detail and ability to work independently
I run an undergraduate research lab at Whitman College, a selective liberal arts college located in the small but vibrant community of Walla Walla, in eastern Washington.
