Laboratory Technician
Focused Ultrasound Lab (Dr. Kullervo Hynynen)
Physical Sciences, Sunnybrook Research Institute 
Description: One of the areas of research our group focuses on is the use of ultrasound to increase blood-brain barrier permeability for targeted drug delivery. We are currently seeking a laboratory technician to perform in vivo two-photon imaging following focused ultrasound exposures in mice, as well as biochemical assays (e.g. qPCR, immunohistochemistry, etc.) and general lab duties (e.g. chemical inventory, replacing supplies, etc). Ideally, candidates should have a degree in neuroscience (or a related discipline), two-photon microscopy skills, and related research experience. If you are interested, please contact Kristina Mikloska (kristina.mikloska@sunnybrook.ca) for more information.
