Andras Simon's group studies mechanisms of regeneration in newts, which are
aquatic salamanders. During the past years the group has developed methods
that enable us to characterize how these animals replace damaged or
degenerating tissues with new ones. The group places our findings in an
evolutionary perspective and perform comparative studies with mammals. Please

The work consists of assisting in the generation and maintenance of transgenic
salamander lines.The duties include preparation of DNA and viral particles,
microinjection, breeding, genotyping of transgenic salamanders, animal

We are looking primarily for someone who has documented understanding and
experience working with molecular biology techniques and some experience
handling research animals.
