RA/SRA

The ideal candidate will have strong practical knowledge of molecular biology techniques spanning genetics, biochemistry & microbiology disciplines.

Duties & Responsibilities:
  • Experience and demonstrated excellence at the bench      conducting research and development in a team and structured program      environment.
  • Demonstrated experience with:
  • Genetic manipulation of Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic      strains
  • Small scale cultivation of strains including media      preparation and culture maintenance
  • Modern synthetic biology (DNA assembly, nucleic acid      purification and manipulation, cloning, DNA sequencing, PCR, etc).
  • Basic molecular biology techniques (PCR, SDS-page, gene      cloning, DNA sequencing, RNA isolation, Western Blotting, etc)
  • Under general direction of senior staff, has      responsibility for execution of multiple experiments in support of project      goals and timelines.
  • Innovative mindset with strong troubleshooting skills.
  • Generate detailed and complete notebook and communicate      data to group in written and oral reports
