Research in the Shain Laboratory focuses on the genomics of skin cancers. Our research makes use of molecular biology, cell biology, genomics, bioinformatics, and multidisciplinary collaborations to gain new insights into the molecular determinants of human malignancies. Our team is comprised of biologists and computational scientists working together to advance understanding of skin biology and improve patient outcomes. The technician in the laboratory will work closely with all members of the laboratory on a diverse array of projects to help, as needed, facilitate the overall goals of the laboratory. Specific tasks include: melanocyte culture, single-cell sorting, screening multi-well plate, single-cell sequencing library preparation, and next generation sequencing data analysis. Comfort with R and/or Python is desirable.
