The CGND is looking for a well-organized and methodically working Associate Scientist for CGND’s frontline sample-to-NGS library preparation workflow. The individual will interface with the clinical research coordinator and key scientific staff to assume responsibility for incoming sample cataloguing, archiving and nucleic acid extraction. A significant aspect of this role will be the preparation of various types of NGS libraries and associated library quality control (RNA-Seq, WGS, ChIP-Seq). The Associate Scientist will be part of an interdisciplinary team working in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.
Job responsibilities will include:
- Extraction of genomic DNA from human blood and tissue samples for whole-genome sequencing;
- Organization of sample archives, including incoming sample entry and tracking in LIMS;
- Perform procedures associated with RNA and DNA sequencing on Illumina HiSeq/X-Ten/MiSeq platforms (including sample quantification, quality control, library preparation and library validation).
