We are looking for a highly motivated research technician to complement our molecular biology team at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories/ University of Vienna/ Vienna Biocenter in Vienna, Austria. Our scientific interest lies in understanding the function, development and evolution of sensory and neurosecretory cells in animal brains. Our main experimental organisms are the zebrafisch (Danio rerio), the medaka fish (Oryzias latipes) and the bristle worm (Platynereis dumerilii).
The Tessmar-Raible and Raible labs are run jointly together with two technical assistants sharing the work. Details about the labs work can be found at the following links:
The successful candidate should have solid knowledge in basic molecular techniques and be a good team worker. The work in our lab will include DNA and RNA extraction, gel electrophoresis, PCR, molecular cloning, SDS page electrophoresis, whole mount in situ hybridization, immunocytochemistry, microscopy and microinjections. On a rotational basis, the work will also include the preparation of the labs stock solutions, ordering and the care of animals.
We are an established and enthusiastic team, offer a competitive salary, the possibility to learn new techniques, and to perform a small own research project.
Start date is envisioned for June 2017, but can be discussed.
