Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Molecular Neurobiology

Description of research group and project
Applications are invited for a lab manager in Gonçalo Castelo-Branco´s group, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden (http://ki.se/en/mbb/goncalo-castelo-branco-group). Our research group is interested in the molecular mechanisms defining the epigenetic state of cells of the oligodendrocyte lineage, using transcriptomic and epigenomic approaches ((including single-cell technologies). We are particularly focused on how interplay between transcription factors, non-coding RNAs and chromatin modifying enzymes contributes to the transition between epigenetic states in oligodendrocyte precursor cells, with the aim to design epigenetic based-therapies to induce regeneration (remyelination) in demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (please refer to our publications in Neurobiology of Disease 2014, Science 2016).

The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biofysics, MBB conducts research in many different fields of research and teaching at undergraduate and advanced level and postgraduate education. At the department there are currently 11 departments with together about 300 employees. The Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology consists of about 55 researchers in 7 research groups, in a youthful and very dynamic working environment.

We are looking for a highly motivated, driven, inquisitive, enthusiastic person interested in our area of research, who is knowledgeable in cell and molecular biology for the function of the lab (ie "lab manager"). Applicants should have knowledge in all standard molecular biology and cell biology techniques, such as DNA purification and PCR analysis. Experience working with rodents and with administrative/organizational tasks would be valued.

Applicants must have adequate university education, preferably engineering education in molecular and cell biology, as well as experience from research with related tasks. Good collaboration skills, computer skills and good knowledge of English are required.  FELASA certification would be beneficial. We are looking for a person who is careful, well-organized, likes to work with others in projects and who likes to provide service.

Very good knowledge of English, in both speech and writing, is assumed.

In this recruitment we place great emphasis on personal qualities.

The application must be made through the NetRecruiter recruitment system.
