POSITION SUMMARY:

Dr. Joyce Rauch is looking for a motivated person to fill the position of a full-time laboratory technician for a period of 12 months with the possibility of renewal. Under the direction of the principal investigator, the laboratory technician will participate in the execution of laboratory projects and experiments, and oversee certain administrative tasks in the laboratory.

The major research project (funded by CIHR) in Dr. Rauch’s laboratory involves the investigation of programmed cell death in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), with a focus on delineating the mechanistic pathways responsible for the development of SLE. Dr. Rauch’s laboratory has developed a murine model of SLE that enables the investigation of immune mechanisms responsible for the initiation and development of this disease. This murine model also provides an ideal means of evaluating new therapeutics targeting the B and T cell response in SLE. Dr. Rauch’s laboratory is responsible for biobanking biospecimens from SLE patients and is involved in a number of collaborative clinical research studies.
