Scientific Officer in Genomics Technology Development: Germany
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is offering a very exciting opportunity in cutting-edge single cell genomics.
Do you love working on the bench and have a knack for setting up new techniques? This could be the job for you!Single cell genomics is moving at a very rapid and exciting pace. The field is advancing to measure multiple parameters from the same single cell (multi-omics) and to study cells in their native in-situ context. The latter, referred to as spatial single cell omics, often involves imaging-based methods rather than sequencing, including highly multiplexed fluorescent in-situ (FISH) hybridisation. EMBL is looking for a Research Scientist that has great hands and would like to work in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge environment. The successful candidate will join a team dedicated to optimising and developing new single cell genomics methods.
You will work as part of a team of scientists working to develop and optimise single cell and spatial single cell genomic approaches for use by research groups throughout EMBL. You will perform hands on experiments, as well as designing and planning experiments for new method development. You will contribute to diverse projects (method developments) in the group, which will involve extensive genomics and microscopy. The successful candidate should be able to work independently, be highly motivated and very well-organized.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in biological sciences, and extensive research experience. You should have a proven track record in the development, or extensive optimisation and application, of genomic technologies including single cell genomics. For example, a very strong Ph.D. and/or post-doc in any (or multiple) of the following: single cell genomics, imaging, microfluidics, data analysis, molecular biology method development. Prior experience with highly multiplex FISH protocols (e.g. seqFISH) are a bonus. Excellent communication skills and the ability to drive your own work while collaborating within a team are essential. Fluency in English is mandatory.
You might also have
Experience with working with complex tissues, e.g. embryos, tumours. Expertise with multi-plexed in-situ hybridization or immuno-staining.
