Anthropocene Lab at Michigan State University (MSU)
The Watershed Biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene Lab (http://gersonlab.weebly.com) at Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking applications for a laboratory technician position to start in September 2023. This technician will work on a funded collaborative project between MSU, the University of Colorado Boulder, and the University of California Santa Cruz focused on investigating the interaction of agricultural sulfur runoff and mercury methylation in California vineyards and nearby wetlands. This position will involve laboratory analyses, consisting primarily of total mercury, methylmercury, and mercury isotope measurements from field samples and laboratory incubation experiments. The technician will be trained on all laboratory techniques and then will be expected to develop independence over time.

San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance Beckman Center for Conservation Research
This one-year Heller Fellow position within Disease Investigations (DI) will focus on building aging and biomarkers of health tools for wildlife conservation that can be applied both locally and globally. You would be working under the direction of DI's veterinary toxicologist and the first project will focus on setting up an epigenetic clock pipeline in our molecular diagnostic laboratory, with cheetah aging for our first project. Previous experience with DNA methylation is a perk, and if you are at a post-doc level and interested in applying, please feel free to and we can talk about options.
