for the construction, generation, and characterization of expression vectors and immune system gene libraries from human and murine sources as well as construction of improved gene delivery and reporter systems. This includes development and optimization of eukaryotic (especially mammalian) expression vector systems, protocols for rapid high-throughput gene amplification and cloning, development and optimization of protocols to scale up library diversity as well as development and implementation of procedures for gene engineering in mammalian cells. Experience with next generation sequencing (i.e. Illumina MiSeq) is an advantage. You will be responsible for leading a small team to both establish custom protocols and run established methods for collaborating groups.
The ideal candidate for this attractive position will have a PhD in molecular biology with emphasis on eukaryotic, and especially mammalian gene expression, and relevant molecular biology/cell biology experience in eukaryotic genetics and reporter assays. Industry experience and expertise in immunology or yeast genetics is advantageous.
If you are an innovative scientist who would like to join a highly motivated team in a dynamic international environment, we look forward to receiving your application.
