All positions have place of work in BIOCEV campus in Vestec in close vicinity to Prague except otherwise stated.

Currently we are seeking candidates to following positions:

Open Position

Laboratory technician in molecular biology – genotyping

The Genotyping Unit of the Transgenic and Archiving Module of the CCP is currently seeking a motivated technician to join our international team. Your key responsibilities will be analysis of genetically modified mouse and rat models by different genotyping strategies, as well as general laboratory work incl. media preparation, cell culture and documentation of the work. As assistance for the Transgenic Unit animal handling will be as well part of the engagement.

You should possess a bachelor’s degree in biology, molecular biology, biotechnology or related subject. Experience in rodent handling as well as knowledge in rodent genetics and transgenic technologies would be advantageous as well as valid certificate for work with animals. Candidates should be able to communicate in English, have good interpersonal communication skills and be able to work independently as well as part of a team.

Open Position

PhD student position – Tiki, Wnt-specific Metalloproteases

For our research lab of the Laboratory of Transgenic Models of Diseases that is part of BIOCEV research program 1 we are looking for prospective student focused on elucidation of the biological role of Tiki, Wnt-specific Metalloproteases

Project description
The project focuses on TIKI1 and especially TIKI2 (TRABD2A and TRABD2B genes) whose biological role in mammals is still purely understood. TIKIs function as negative regulators of the Wnt signaling pathway, mediating cleavages of N-terminal residues of a subset of Wnt proteins. Phylogenetic analysis shows that Tiki1 and Tiki2 orthologues are highly conserved among vertebrate and mammalian species although the Tiki1 is missing in rodents. The role of Tiki proteases will be studied in mouse and human systems and the work will start with the analysis of our TIKI2 –deficient mice. The aim of this study is to describe the pathophysiologic roles of TIKI2 (TIKI1).

Candidate’s profile (requirements)
M.Sc. (Mgr.) degree or equivalent in molecular/cellular biology or biochemistry, a good command of English, independent thinking but also team player, strong interest in basic research and experimental work, ability to work with animals (rodents – training will be provided).

Open Position

Pathologist (rodent pathology)

To advance and further improve services of our histopathology lab we are seeking experienced pathologist who will be responsible for analyses and descriptions of mouse and rat tissue samples, especially:
– to provide expertise in the pathology of genetically-engineered mouse (GEM) and rat models
– to provide full pathology analysis including complete gross- and histopathological evaluation supplied with image-based report, digital images, and recommendations
– to perform phenotype investigation and characterization together with histology-lab managing scientist; this includes necropsy, macroimaging, tissue sample collection, supervision of histological processing, histopathological evaluation, digital photomicrographs, and consultations.
– to follow and implement GLP rules and manage work of lab technicians
– to drive his/her own research projects and actively participate within the other projects of the Centre.

Successful applicant should have DVM or MD (or equivalent advanced degree in relevant field) and relevant research and/or hands-on experience. Capability to work in English speaking environment is a must, previous experience with SOPs for GLP is an asset.

Open Position
