APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: 12 March 2021
The Human Technopole Foundation is searching for a Senior Research Technician to join the Automated Stem Cell and Organoid Facility (ASCOF). The aim of the Facility is to enable patient-specific disease modelling at scale by translating, benchmarking and standardising laboratory protocols into automated workflows, integrating state-of-the-art robotic and bioengineering platforms through a highly multidisciplinary approach. Operating in close connection with the Genomics, Advanced Imaging, FACS and Electrophysiology facilities and support units, ASCOF develops transformative technologies to realize the Human Technopole vision of high definition biomedicine through the use of increasingly sophisticated organoid systems at single cell multiomic resolution, with a strong focus on brain diseases and densely phenotyped clinical cohorts.
The successful candidate will report to the Head of Automation and will have the opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary environment to develop automated protocols in the following areas: reprogramming of somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), brain organoids and gene editing.
