Lab Animal Care Assistant - EAST CAMPUS
UNL Institute of Agriculture & Natural Resources (IANR)
The gnotobiotic mouse facility at UNL is seeking a highly motivated, detail-oriented individual to help care for our mouse colony. Our mice are unique because they do not have any gut bacteria—in comparison, conventional mice are colonized with over 400 different organisms. Because these mice are germ free, they must reside in flexible film isolators (i.e., “bubbles”) so they do not become colonized with an unwanted organism. Responsibilities for this position include preparing sterile food, water and bedding for the mice, entering the sterile supplies into isolators in an aseptic manner, performing periodic microbiological quality-control checks to ensure sterile isolator environments and assisting lab personnel with various mouse-related tasks. The health and integrity of this mouse colony are of utmost importance—we are, therefore, in need of a very responsible and dependable individual. The ideal candidate for this position would be someone dedicated to animal care, dependable and self-motivated. Caring for these special mice provides an excellent opportunity to gain small animal husbandry experience. Rate of pay is $8.50/hour for 10 to 15 hrs/week. No prior experience required; training will be provided. This position is available for spring 2015 and possibly longer. TO APPLY: Interested individuals should contact Dr. Amanda Ramer-Tait (aramer-tait2@unl.edu) to apply. Please send: (1) resume, (2) schedule of days/times availability, and (3) indicate work study eligibility.
