Your key responsibilities
– organization and supervision of our ESC laboratory
– ESC manipulation and culture, back
– up freezing
– optimizing the use of ESC for genome targeting by classical techniques and programmable nucleases (CRISPR/Cas)
– organization and supervision for validation of generated ESC clones (Southern blotting, karyotyping
– an assistance in general lab management, administrative tasks including communication with users and overviewing work of technical staff
– support the team in rodent handling and operation (embryo transfer into foster mice and rats

You should possess a PhD in biology, molecular biology, biotechnology, or related subject and must have experience in mouse ESCs culture, general laboratory work, and organization. Qualified experienced person without PhD can be accepted as well. Experience in rodent handling as well as knowledge in rodent genetics and transgenic technologies would be advantageous. Candidates must be fluent in English, have good interpersonal communication skills, and be able to work independently as well as part of a team. If you are an organized and responsible person, have a keen perception and like to establish new techniques in the field of rodent transgenesis, you are welcome to apply for this job.

The position is available immediately (January 2018) as an initial fixed-term contract (negotiable up to three years) with longer-term extension possibility upon demonstrated proficiency.

Open Position

Laboratory technician – genotyping

To strengthen the team of transgenic and archiving module we are seeking a motivated laboratory technician for genotyping. You will be primary responsible for genotyping of transgenic mice, for helping with development of new strategies of genotyping (primer designing, PCR optimization, probe designing) and for establishing different methods of DNA isolation. In addition, you will participate in the production of transgenic mice (mouse/mouse embryo handling, cell cultivations).

The best candidate should have a bachelor degree in biology/biochemistry/biotechnology and be experienced in molecular biology (PCR, primer designing, Southern blot). Those candidates who have knowledge in mouse/rat genetics and transgenic technologies are especially encouraged to apply

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

Research position (postdoc) in ubiquitin ligases or molecular biology

A postdoctoral research scientist position is available immediately in the Laboratory of Transgenic Models of Diseases  the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR, v.v.i. located in BIOCEV (CCP building) We undertake various approaches to understand the function of several E3 ubiquitin ligases by using mouse models with their potential to be instrumental for the study of the disease mechanisms, particularly cancer and inflammatory diseases.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a strong background and skillset in biochemistry and molecular biology. You should have a PhD in biology or biochemistry and have a good proficiency in English. Experience in protein biochemistry is a plus. Your work will focus on wet bench projects including in vitro, in vivo, and mouse models with the goal of elucidating the molecular mechanisms of ubiquitination mediated by RING-type E3 ubiquitin ligases.

Interested candidates should provide motivation letter, CV and contacts to at least two independent professionals who can provide reference.
