Subject: Job: Research Technician, Microbiology Description: Position Title: Research Technician, Microbiology Position Description: The Wound Infections Department at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research is looking for a Research Technician with a strong background in biology or other life sciences degrees, with microbiology and molecular biology experience, to help with the development of new antimicrobials (small molecules, immunological products) against multidrug-resistant bacteria (Gram-negative and Gram-positive). Projects are centered on the testing of novel antibacterials using standard in vitro approaches such as MIC, FIC, biofilm, time-kill assays, and tissue culture assays that assess the efficacy of antibacterial products. Successful antibacterials will be then be tested in small animal models of infection, which the candidate could also learn if desired. Candidates ideally should have strong experience with microbiological techniques, aseptic technique, molecular biology (microbial genetics, protein biochemistry) and be willing to train in order to learn and perform additional microbiology laboratory skills. Further, candidates must be able to manage supplies and resources, maintain data and results associated with a study, and any associated safety and training documentation. Candidates with a clinical microbiology background or previous experience in the assays or animal modeling mentioned above will be preferred.
