VIB is currently looking for a qualified and motivated Technology Development Specialist.
VIB is looking to hire a Technology Development Specialist to develop and evaluate single cell sequencing applications. In this role, you’ll closely collaborate with the Single Cell Accelerator (SCA) program to develop and optimize molecular and cellular based assays for single cell omics analysis. The SCA program was launched in early 2018 to ensure VIB’s prominent position in the single cell field. The funding in the SCA allows evaluation, integration and development of breakthrough single-cell technologies at VIB, often in partnership with the Industry. Areas of great interest include single cell RNA-Seq, Proteogenomics, Nuclei Seq, DNA-Seq, spatial omics and cell manipulation.
In addition to developing single cell sequencing assays, you will work closely with our PI’s/Industrial partners alongside the Technology Innovation lab where prototype instruments and early-stage technologies from high-potential Life Science fields are evaluated and developed. You will actively explore breakthrough life science technologies and instruments through pilot projects with the aim to create value for the VIB community (through papers, IP, service fees etc.).
Your skill set in Life Sciences is adaptable, you are fascinated by new technologies and have some experience in working with disruptive platforms. Alongside this, you have strong interpersonal skills and therefore have the ability to work with multiple PI’s/Core facilities in a flexible manor.
