Your responsibilities

The Bravo group is particularly interested in understanding how diverse bacterial immune systems can identify self from non-self nucleic acids, and the consequences of activation. We use a combination of structural biology (typically cryo-electron microscopy), biochemistry, biophysics and functional assays to understand the molecular mechanisms that underpin immunity. The position and compensation will be tailored to the experience and interests of the candidate, but will be centered around maintaining and assuring the overall efficient running of the laboratory. We are looking for a proactive team member to support us with the following tasks:

  • Taking a lead position in the lab organization (training students, ordering consumables, managing stocks, keeping our databases up to date)
  • Implementation of new equipment and assistance in experimental setups
  • Mediating interactions with our Scientific Service Units (e.g. Lab Support Facility, Electron Microscopy Facility, NMR Facility, etc.)
  • Actively engaging in research projects with focus on protein and nucleic acid biochemistry
  • Establish protocols for phage-based assays
  • Supporting internal and external users with using laboratory infrastructure and reporting results
  • Being part of an interactive and international group of students, postdocs, and interns with diverse backgrounds

Your profile

  • Completed studies/PhD in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics or another related relevant field
  • Strong organizational skills, reliability, and a sense of responsibility
  • Experience in managing laboratory systems and supplies
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge of molecular biology, protein purification, protein and nucleic acid characterization techniques
  • Experience in microbiology and/or phage work is desirable, but not necessary
  • Hands-on mentality to design and implement new add-ons needed for experimental setups
  • Applications should include a letter of motivation, a CV, and contact information for at least 2 referees
