The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a world leader in scientific research and at the forefront in the development of cuttingedge technologies. In particular, exciting single cell genomic methods co-developed by EMBL are revolutionising biological research. The field is
advancing at a very rapid and exciting pace to measure multiple parameters from the same single cell (multi-omics) and to study cells in their native
in-situ context (spatial-omics).
Eileen Furlong and Rainer Pepperkok are looking for an experienced research scientist who loves tools and methods development, and would like to expand their skills in single cell genomics and imaging within a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge environment. The successful
candidate will join a dynamic team dedicated to developing and refining novel methods in single cell genomics.
You will work together with a team of scientists to develop and optimise spatial single cell approaches and other single cell genomic methods to advance research throughout EMBL. You will design, develop and optimize new methods in single cell genomics. Moreover, you will help others
to apply these methods to a wide-range of projects with different research groups by providing expertise and training in single cell omics solutions, involving extensive genomics and microscopy. The successful candidate should be able to work independently, while being an excellent team
player and be highly motivated and very well-organized.
What else you need to know
Our mission is to offer vital services in training scientists, students and visitors at all levels; to develop new technologies and instruments in the life sciences, actively engage in technology transfer activities, and to integrate European life science research.
Interviews are planned to take place by video conference on November 5th 2020.
Please note that appointments on fixed term contracts can be renewed, depending on circumstances at the time of the review.
