The Leeb group seeks to identify the key regulatory mechanisms that determine and maintain cell identity during mammalian development. We use stem cell culture model systems to understand the guiding principles of cell fate choice.
The successful applicant will manage the day to day operation of the lab (e.g. ordering, preparation and maintenance of stocks, etc.), but will also have the opportunity to actively participate in ambitious research projects and in training of new lab members.
Comprehensive theoretical and practical training in basic molecular biology techniques (e.g. cloning, DNA/RNA purification, PCR, Western Blotting, etc.) as well as excellent teamwork, organisational and communication skills are essential. We are looking for a team member with the willingness to learn new techniques and to acquire further skills to contribute to our lab’s success. Proficiency in German is required for this position. Experience in cell culture is desirable but not essential, as we will provide training in cell culture techniques.
If you share our enthusiasm for exploring the key mechanisms that guide development and are a highly organised and meticulous worker with a friendly and cooperative attitude, then we invite you to send your application consisting of:
a letter of motivation
your CV (including a detailed description of techniques and work experience)
the contact details of at least two references
to firstname.lastname@example.org. The interviews will be held on a rolling basis and as soon as a suitable candidate is found, the position will be filled. The initial contract will be for nine months with the possibility of extension for multiple years. The monthly salary will be in accordance with the FWF guidelines.
