ETH Zurich is one of the world’s leading universities specialising in science and technology. It is renowned for its excellent education, its cutting-edge fundamental research and its efforts to put new knowledge and innovations directly into practice. The Professorship of Genome Biology (Prof. Jacob Corn) develops and uses next-generation genome editing technologies for fundamental discovery and to create potential therapies for human genetic diseases. The Corn Laboratory is part of the D-BIOL Institute of Molecular Health Sciences at the ETH Zurich (Hönggerberg campus). The laboratory works in the fast-moving field of genome editing, and applicants should be excited for a dynamic environment. To support the laboratory’s research operations, we are seeking a
Research Technician (100%) per June/July 2019
This project-oriented position will support research activities focused on genome editing of bone marrow hematopoietic stem cells. The technician will report directly to the Professor of Genome Biology but will work most closely with postdoctoral fellows and graduate students in the laboratory.
Required Qualifications are qualified laboratory experience in molecular and cellular biology, such as might be obtained in a B.Sc. degree or apprenticeship. The candidate must have hands-on experience with modern molecular biology techniques such as cloning, bacterial transformation, and Sanger sequencing. Familiarity with mouse work (LTK I) is also essential.
Preferred Qualifications are experience with advanced molecular biology techniques (e.g. preparation of next-generation sequencing libraries), human cell culture (especially primary cell culture), and CRISPR genome editing.
