Intact Genomics is seeking a full-time scientist with expertise in next generation DNA sequencing. The ideal candidate will have an in-depth understanding of molecular biology and genomics, excellent bench skills in DNA and RNA handling, and sequencing library construction. Previous hands-on experience in next generation sequencing of different platforms, especially Illumina, is strongly preferred. The successful candidate will potentially lead a new division at Intact Genomics to accelerate the development of new sequencing technologies and applications.
DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES
Develop molecular biology procedures, including: RNA/DNA extraction, purification and quality control, PCR and qPCR, gel electrophoresis, cloning; and other basic molecular biology techniques.
Perform next generation sequencing using Illumina instruments and other instrument, including next-gen sequencing library preparation (from Fosmids/BACs, whole genome, RNA, whole exome sequencing), library quality control, and sequencer operation protocols.
Design, conduct, and analyze the data from experiments involved in optimizing target capture, library construction, and next-generation DNA sequencing approaches.
Design, program, and run custom workflows on high-throughput liquid handling robotics platforms.
Maintain and help generate standard operating procedures for developed protocols. Collect and record experimental data, write reports for publication and internal use.
