We seek a technical/research assistant to join our team at the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN), University of Tübingen, Germany. Our laboratory works in the field of axonal biology and develops new techniques for bioorthogonal protein labeling in mammalian cells. The selected candidate will use a variety of cell/molecular biology techniques to support the research activities of the team.
· An interesting position in a small and international lab
· A full time or part-time position depending on the agreement with the selected candidate
· Depending on the qualifications and aspirations of the selected candidate, we would be happy to discuss/offer the possibility to conduct small independent projects
· Support the research activities of the team by performing laboratory benchwork (e.g. maintenance of cell lines, molecular cloning, transfections, genetic code expansion & click chemistry-based bioorthogonal protein labeling, flow cytometry, virus production, tissue preparation, immunostainings, etc.)
· Participation in the data collection and analysis
· Assisting with laboratory maintenance duties, e.g. placing & receiving orders, handling routine tasks such as preparing stocks of common lab reagents, maintaining lab databases, etc.
· You have completed training for a biological technical assistant
· Alternatively, you have completed (or are about to complete) BSc or MSc degree in molecular biology, neuroscience or related fields
Preferred Skills (having experience in any of the following areas will be considered a plus):
· Training in standard lab techniques, particularly cell culture, molecular cloning, etc.
· Experience with fluorescence microscopy techniques
· Experience with animal (mouse) model work
· Experience with neuroscience techniques, particularly preparation of primary neurons, organotypic cultures or iPSC-derived neurons
