The Institute of Molecular Systems Biology (IMSB) is part of the Department of Biology at the ETH Zurich. IMSB engages in the research and teaching of the emerging, interdisciplinary science of systems biology and is housed on the ETH campus Hönggerberg. It consists of seven professorships with over 110 scientists, students and support employees from all parts of the world.
We are looking for a motivated and skilled technician to support an interdisciplinary project tackling the global problem of honeybee decline. The project will start in April 2021 as an 18-month feasibility study (extension possible).
The honeybee, a major pollinator crucial for our ecosystems, agriculture and economy, is threatened by the parasitic mite Varroa destructor. We aim to develop an easy, efficient and sustainable method to control the mite population.
Our team at ETH is part of a Swiss consortium and will establish an cell culture-based assay system to test RNA targeting reagents. Your main responsibility is to perform quantitative insect cell-based assays.
You have a Master degree in biology or an apprenticeship certificate (Biologielaborant*in) and experience in the following techniques in cell and molecular biology:
RNA-handling skills (e.g., RNA preparation from tissue and by in vitro transcription) are an asset.
Besides, you should possess
- Fluency in English and German
- Excellent organizational, communication and social skills
- Ability and willingness to work in a team and also independently
