As a postdoc you will be part of a team (the LUMC hiPSC hotel) that generates, differentiates and genetically modifies hiPSCs and that has a supportive role towards our customers. Your tasks will involve optimizing and designing gene editing strategies of hiPSCs for the generation of isogenic controls, reporters, knockouts and so on, as part of a service for our customers. This research will include working with state-of-the-art gene-modifying tools, reprogramming vector systems, etc. You will be expected to supervise personnel in coordination with the other team members on a daily basis, as well as organize and convey your expertise and experimental findings.
You have obtained a PhD degree in Biomedical sciences, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or a similar field within the last five years and possess solid experience in both molecular and cell biology. Experience with genetic modification, from design to analysis, is required. Additional experience with CRISPR/Cas9 and culturing of human iPSC is advantageous. You should be highly motivated, capable of working both independently and in a team, and service-minded.
