Laboratory engineer in molecular ecology

  • Övrigt


Welcome to Linnaeus University Where knowledge grows. We are an international university in Småland, Sweden. Together we set knowledge in motion for a sustainable societal development. The Department of Biology and Environmental Science is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. The research activities within this multidisciplinary department include the areas of aquatic ecology, cell and organism biology, evolutionary biology, microbiology, environmental science and engineering as well as zoonotic ecology. For more information see: Lnu.se. Placement: Kalmar, Sweden Extent and period: 100% tillsvidare Work description We seek a highly motivated and skilled laboratory engineer for work within multiple projects in the research group Marine Plankton Ecology and Applications within the Centre for Ecology and Evolution in Microbial model Systems (EEMi S) at the  Linnaeus University that comprises expertise in ecology, evolution, and microbiology. As a laboratory engineer in molecular ecology, you will work in close collaboration with post-docs and Ph D students, be responsible for quality assurance of the molecular work in the laboratory as well as independently manage research projects. You will introduce new co-workers to laboratory work and be responsible for developing standardized operating protocols and implementing laboratory safety routines. Tasks will include collection of environmental samples from study sites, extraction of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), PCR and real-time PCR amplification. The projects will include troubleshooting and development of novel molecular assays and protocols. As some projects will be cross disciplinary, experience in animal science research, handling poultry and fish, non-invasive sampling and clinical lab-work will be highly valued. Experience in cell culturing is also beneficial. Requirements A person fulfils the general entry requirements if he/she has • been awarded a Ph D degree or MSc in Biology, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Aquatic Ecology or other closely related fields. • experience of working as a laboratory engineer within the fields of aquatic molecular biology and microbiology. • experience of independently conducting research projects. • very high proficiency in written and spoken English. • B-driver license Other assessment grounds • Experience with optimization of analytical protocols and proactive laboratory safety work including chemical safety training and writing of risk assessments. • Documented experience of training and supervision of laboratory staff. • Strict organization and a methodological work approach. • Documented experience of animal science research. • Documented experience of genotyping and detection of eukaryotic strain microdiversity. • Important personal qualities are to be a creative critical thinker, good at problem-solving, a team-worker, resilient, and structured.   The application should contain a CV (with telephone and e-mail), documentation of exams and grades, a description of personal motivation and experiences relevant to the position and any other documentation that the applicant would like to present.
