Members of this team perform hands-on bench work and are responsible for the delivery of daily/weekly transgenic project tasks and meeting delivery milestones.
If you are looking for a great team and interesting projects, apply now!
What You’ll be Doing:
- Work collaboratively with the team to meet timelines, with the ability to deliver on multiple projects simultaneously.
- Detect precise edits in vivo using standard to advanced molecular biology techniques.
- Screen and propagate de novo genome edited animals.
- Troubleshoot genome editing projects and analysis of genotyping data.
- Contribute to continuous process improvement to optimize processes & timelines.
- Adhere to SOPs and provide detailed project tracking and documentation.
- Prepare solutions and buffers as necessary to complete the above activities
- Other responsibilities as assigned and support other teams as needed.
As you will be joining a growing biotech company, adaptability and ability to work in a dynamic environment are a must. The ideal candidate will also be a great team player, a creative problem-solver and have a continuous improvement mindset.
In addition, successful candidates will have the following qualifications:
- Level of role is determined by a combination of education in the biological sciences and relevant molecular biology experience. At a minimum we require at least some college level coursework in biology or related discipline and at least 6 months of relevant laboratory experience. For higher level roles a Master’s degree is preferred.
- Must be reliable and willing to accommodate flexible scheduling needs – such as occasional weekend or holiday work.
- Solid mathematic and calculation skills.
- Adept at standard techniques including PCR, primer design, and DNA Sequence Analysis.
- Knowledge of standard RE cloning methodology and diagnostic techniques.
- In-vitro transcription and RNA purification experience.
- Working knowledge of basic laboratory equipment and protocols.
- Previous experience with microinjection.
- High attention to detail, ability to creatively troubleshoot and reliability are a must.
- Strong work ethic and commitment to completing assigned tasks.
- Experience with zebrafish, C. elegans, drosophila or other similar animal models highly desired.
- Advanced gene-editing experience. Hands on experience with CRISPR genome editing methodologies (KO and HDR) or Tol2 transposon based transgenesis preferred.
- Experience working with genome assemblies such as ensemble or NCBI a plus.
- Experience with design of plasmids using vector building software such as Benchling, Ape or equivalent.
