Laboratory Technician

April 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Biomedical Research Institute of Rockville, MD (BRI) is home to the Schistosomiasis Resource Center (SRC), an NIH-funded laboratory that supplies parasite research materials to scientists in the U.S. and abroad. The SRC cultivates the three major species of snails that are the vector-host for Schistosoma spp, which is the cause of a devastating worm infection in over 300 million people living in tropical regions. We are currently seeking a laboratory technician to perform tasks that are essential to the maintenance of…
