We are looking for a technician with a background in Cellular Biology and Molecular Biology to join the Molecular Neuroscience Unit at the OIST. The candidate should have a Ph.D. or 5 years of professional technical support experience and should be familiar with cell and molecular biology techniques. Basic computer skills are required; familiarity with statistical software (prism or R) is preferable.
The successful applicant is expected to operate as support figure in the laboratory and to lead an independent line of research. Our main focus is the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the correct localization of signaling complexes by molecular transport and/or local protein synthesis and how this affects neuronal homeostasis and pathology.
We seek dynamic and motivated people with the ability to integrate in a small, young team. To this extent, shortlisted applicants may be invited to visit the OIST for an interview meeting before any decisions are made.
