We are looking for a Research Technician to join the research group of Matilde Galli at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The lab studies cell-cycle control in animals using C. elegans and human organoids as model systems. We are interested in understanding how cells determine their cell division patterns and how cell-cycle changes are orchestrated during cellular differentiation. Further information about research in the lab can be found at: www.hubrecht.eu/research-groups/galli-group/ and www.gallilab.org
The technician will be involved in performing genetic, molecular and cell biological experiments using C. elegans (including generating genetically-modified C. elegans strains, genotyping, and using fluorescence microscopy assays), as well as assisting in the day-to-day management of the lab. The individual will be expected to be an active member of the lab and actively participate in weekly lab meetings.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated technician who holds a BSc or equivalent degree. In addition, the candidate should have good communication and social skills, and be a team player. The candidate should have a strong background in cell- and molecular biological techniques, such as molecular cloning, in situ hybridizations and/or immunostainings. Experience with a model genetic system, ideally C. elegans, is preferred.
