The group of Dr. Juan Garaycoechea currently has a vacancy for a technician to work on Mechanisms of physiological mutagenesis.
Description of the project
DNA carries the instructions of life, but is also under constant attack. The resulting damage, if not repaired, leads to mutation and disease. Common environmental mutagens include sunlight and cigarette smoke, but the integrity of DNA is also threatened by chemicals produced by our own body. Our lab seeks to understand the metabolic sources of DNA damage and molecular mechanisms that lead to mutagenesis in a physiological setting. In order to do this, we will develop methods to quantify mutation in somatic tissue and use genetics in a number of systems, including mice, to gain mechanistic insight into the process that drive this.
We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled technician with an HLO background and experience with molecular biology and cell culture methods. Experience with Next Generation Sequencing and library preparation is advantageous. The ideal candidate also has experience with animal experimentation or article 9 qualification. The working language in our international team is English, the candidate should therefore have excellent English communication skills and be able to work as part of a team.
Initially six months with a potential extension.
According to “CAO-Nederlandse Universiteiten” (CAO-NU), depending on experience scale 7 or 8, excluding 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% year-end bonus. We offer an extensive package of fringe benefits.
