A full-time Research Technician position in Molecular Biology is available within an ERC consolidator grant at the laboratory of Sara Magalhães (https://mitesquad.weebly.com/) at the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes – cE3c, University of Lisbon, Portugal.
The candidate is expected to have a Master degree in Biology, a thorough scientific and/or professional experience in molecular biology, to be fully independent in applying several techniques (DNA extraction for Next Generation Sequencing, diagnostic PCRs and qPCRs) and in organizing his/her work. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in bioinformatics (processing of Next Generation Sequencing data).
We are especially seeking a candidate who enjoys working in a group, respects the lab tidiness and appreciates learning tasks unrelated to molecular biology (he/she will assist occasionally the other lab members in tasks involving plant and spider mite manipulation).
Applicants should follow the procedure in the document available on the left. In case of doubt, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
