Laboratory Technician II Department of Biology POSITION SUMMARY The Schulz Tryp lab at Harvey Mudd College is seeking a full-time research technologist. We are globally interested in how organisms adapt to different environments. Our study system is the African trypanosome parasite, which cycles between a tsetse fly vector and a mammalian host. In humans and animals, the parasite causes a fatal disease called African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness). The disease causes a large human and economic burden for people living in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the disease is endemic. In order to adapt itself from living in the bloodstream to living in the fly, the parasite must change the transcript levels of thousands of genes in the genome. We want to know more about the molecular mechanisms behind these changes. You can read more about our work at https://sites.google.com/a/g.hmc.edu/schulzlab/.
