In a laboratory at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research, we are seeking a highly motivated and organised individual to join our team and contribute to experimental animal model systems aimed at understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms regulating haematopoietic stem cell function. Specifically, he/she will mainly perform experiments in haematopoietic stem cell research through a combination of independent and team-led projects. This person should be able to independently complete experiments or small research projects that require advanced knowledge and experience in a specific scientific area or discipline.
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to
- Maintaining, collecting and preparing records of data and results for presentations, papers, etc.
- Performing data analysis using statistical software packages
- Ordering supplies within the laboratory
- Investigate and assist in the repair of laboratory equipment malfunctions
- Apply molecular and cellular biology approaches to animal studies using a mouse model of bone marrow transplantation.
- Maintaining a mouse colony, contributing experimentally to ongoing research projects and overseeing general laboratory operations and supplies.
- Maintain laboratory bacterial culture stocks, mammalian cell culture stocks, DNA plasmid stocks.
- Train students in research methods and procedures as required
- Carry out other duties as assigned.
- Research on haematopoietic stem cells
- The successful candidate will be proficient in mouse husbandry, PCR-based genotyping, cell culture, flow cytometry, DNA, RNA and protein isolation and detection techniques. In addition, the successful candidate will be proficient in standard molecular biology techniques and assays and have skills in molecular cloning, cell culture, western blotting and PCR.
- A Bachelor’s degree and 1-2 years’ experience or equivalent combination of education and experience is required. A working knowledge of general principles of genetics and molecular biology, accurate and timely record keeping, impeccable organisation and a demonstrated interest in working in a laboratory environment are required to excel in this role.
