Research Assistant (Silva Lab)

Applications are invited for a Research Assistant to join the laboratory of Dr José Silva to work on a project studying the molecular and epigenetic mechanisms of naive pluripotency. The successful applicant will be required to carry out most technical steps of the project including mammalian cell culture, generation of transgenic cell lines and large-scale genome analysis based on Chromatin Immunoprecipitation, Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing, RNA-sequencing and single cell RNA-sequencing. Additionally, they should be capable of interpreting the results generated.

Candidates should have a Bachelor's (or equivalent) degree in Biology, Biochemistry or a related subject. They should be able to work accurately and methodically. Basic molecular biology skills (e.g. PCR, gene cloning, transformation, DNA/RNA preparation), detailed and precise record keeping and the ability to use basic computational packages, especially Excel, are required. Previous experience in mammalian cell culture or Chromatin Immunoprecipitation is desirable but not essential. Good communication skills are essential as the candidate may be required to present their research work in oral presentations or in written reports. If the appointed candidate is successful in their role in the development of the project, we will support a future PhD application.
