We are seeking an enthusiastic Research Assistant who will be responsible for performing a range of Molecular Biology techniques within the lab at our Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire.
Do you have:
- BSc in Biological Sciences or related including an understanding of genome engineering techniques in animal models (gene targeting, CRISPR-based tools).
- Experience of working in a molecular biology laboratory including techniques such as PCR, qPCR and cloning.
- Computer literacy for the recording and communication of results.
The Mary Lyon Centre is the national facility for mouse genetics!
Our activities focus on applying mouse genetics, transgenesis and phenotypic screening to investigate mammalian gene function at a systems level. We are working with new genome editing technologies, which are allowing us to introduce genetic variants, especially those seen in human patients, as well as generating new mouse strains for preclinical and discovery research. We are also involved with the development and application of a number of new automated phenotyping tests, including those involving video and auditory analysis. We are the central hub for the soon to be launched National Network for Mouse Genetics! Take a look here: (https://mrc.ukri.org/research/initiatives/national-mouse-genetics-network/ ).
Main duties include:
- Characterisation and quality control of genetically modified materials employing high end PCR-based techniques and non-radioactive Southern blotting. Genotyping. Sample management and communication of results. Some ES cell culture.
- Other general duties required are to ensure smooth running of a Molecular Biology laboratory.
We are offering a fixed term position that provides a whole host of family friendly benefits including; 30 days holiday (in addition to bank holidays), an excellent pension scheme, employee shopping/travel discounts, a salary sacrifice cycle to work scheme, plus many more benefits and wellbeing initiatives that enable our employees to have a great work life balance.
