The overarching goal of our research is to mechanistically understand how mammals degrade immune-related proteins at the correct time during the resolution phase after infection. We use mammalian cell culture model systems to elucidate the guiding principles of proteasome-dependent protein degradation.
The successful applicant will manage day-to-day operations of the research group. Tasks include: ordering, preparation and maintenance of stocks, reagent preparation, ensuring continuous lab operations, etc. In addition, there will be the opportunity to actively contribute to research projects with experimental work.
Comprehensive theoretical and practical training in molecular biology techniques such as cloning, nucleic acid purification, PCR, Western Blotting, etc. Experience in mammalian cell culture and flow cytometry is desirable, but not essential. In addition, successful candidates are highly pro-active, communicative, and team players. Excellent organizational and communication skills are essential. We are looking for a team member with the willingness to learn and develop new techniques and skills.
If you share our passion for investigating the mechanisms that guide correct protein degradation, and are a highly organized and detail-oriented worker with a team-oriented attitude, then we invite you to submit your application. Please include in your application:
Your motivation letter.
Your CV with detailed descriptions of work experience, and experience with molecular biology and cell biology techniques.
Contact details of at least two references
Please submit your application package to: email@example.com. The interviews will be held on a rolling basis; as soon as a suitable candidate is found, the position will be filled. The monthly salary will be in accordance with FWF guidelines.
