We seek a research technician to support a dynamic and international research team. Our research focuses on developing novel gene editing technologies and advanced 3D stem cell-based model systems to gain insight in the pathogenesis of genetic muscle disorders and develop new therapeutic approaches to treat these disorders. You will participate in this research, but also assist the lab manager with the logistic and administrative organization of the lab.
You have experience with standard molecular and cell culturing techniques. Experience with culture and differentiation of murine and human embryonic stem cells is an advantage. You will work in an international and academic environment, so strong verbal and written English skills are required. Good communication and organization skills being a team player are necessary to be part of our collaborative team of researchers in this project.
