The Mary Lyon Centre at MRC Harwell (MLC) https://www.har.mrc.ac.uk/ is located in an expanding science innovation park in Oxfordshire and is an internationally renowned centre at the forefront of genetics research. As the hub of the new National Mouse Genetics Network, the specialist facilities and capabilities of the MLC support a number of distinct research clusters spread across the UK to accelerate our understanding of human disease.
About the Role
MRC laboratories involve the generation and quality control of mouse-targeted alleles and genotyping. The laboratories use a range of molecular biology techniques, including the generation of CRISPR reagents, PCR, Sanger sequencing analysis, digital droplet PCR (ddPCR), non-radioactive Southern blotting, qPCR-based genotyping and embryonic stem (ES) cell culture.
We have two exciting positions for Research Assistants to join our team, focusing in particular on employing sequencing and ddPCR for validation of new alleles generated by the service. You may also be required to apply other molecular techniques in support of the genome engineering activity.
Previous experience with relevant techniques will be an advantage, but is not essential as training can be provided.
