University of Montana: Lab Technician

Missoula, MT
The University of Montana is looking for a Lab Technician/Researcher for eDNA monitoring of invasive species, in order to prevent the spread of invasive fish and mussels using qPCR and novel water surveillance.

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) such as rainbow trout, brook trout, and zebra mussels are spreading across North America, causing massive economic and ecological problems. To help prevent spread, new environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling and laboratory qPCR tests are now available for early detection and monitoring of these AIS. This lab position will involve applying real time qPCR assays to track the spread of AIS in Montana and adjacent states. The successful applicant would help collect water eDNA samples in national parks and wilderness areas across Montana. Sampling would include use of a mobile qPCR on lakes (from a speed boat), and the use of autonomous sampling instruments that collect multiple samples daily (automatically, with no human help on site) from streams. The successful applicant will help publish novel approaches to understand, predict, and prevent evolutionary adaptation and spread of AIS.

Skills required: 
The applicant should have experience applying qPCR assays (e.g. TaqMan) to eDNA samples or difficult/ancient DNA samples. The successful applicant would ideally also have a Master’s degree or equivalent experience in writing reports or publications, working as a team, and collaborating successfully with natural resource agency field biologists. Experience with metabarcoding and next generation sequence data analysis would be beneficial.

Salary will depend on your experience and CV.
