The Ohio University Genomics Facility seeks a dedicated, entrepreneurial individual for a full-time position as Director of the Genomics Facility. The successful candidate will be expected to build the user base, manage, oversee, and expand the daily operations of a university-wide genomics core facility. The Director is responsible for a working knowledge of all facility equipment; maintaining the facility Web site and LIMS; overseeing billing and establishing pricing, policies, and procedures for facility usage and services; and cultivating professional contacts with vendors, researchers, and other core facilities as well as managing a technical staff member who performs much of the bench work. The Director will assist researchers with experiment design; provide expertise to develop new research methodologies; coordinate facility workflow; troubleshoot, interpret, and communicate results; train and educate faculty and students; and give occasional in-class lectures and facility tours. The Director would be expected to write internal and external grant proposals to enhance the facility, and contribute expertise to faculty research proposals, but would not have an independent research program.
The Genomics Facility currently provides services related to Sanger sequencing, next generation sequencing (Ion torrent and Illumina), Bioanalysis, qRT-PCR, microarray analysis, and laser capture micro dissection microscopy.
