Lactation Lab Assistant

University of Idaho is looking for a lactation physiology lab. 

The main research themes of the lab center around lactation biology, animal and environmental physiology, and postnatal development. They utilize traditional laboratory assays and molecular techniques to investigate environmental influences on lactation physiology, milk production, and animal health and to explore how offspring development, health, and performance are shaped by early-life experiences. Research questions are addressed from mechanistic, evolutionary, and production perspectives and are multidisciplinary - integrating aspects of dairy science, nutrition, physiology, molecular biology, animal behavior, and evolutionary biology. Study organisms include dairy cattle and small rodents.
