The Jones Lab is hiring! Pursue your career goals by contributing and building your scientific, engineering and computational skills as the newest member of our team. We are one of five inaugural research groups at the VU LSC - EMBL Partnership Institute, centered on developing novel genome editing technologies. Our group aims to discover and characterize broad classes of programmable enzymes – including CRISPR nucleases – with a special interest in uncovering their mechanisms of specificity.
As junior researcher and laboratory manager in Dr Stephen Jones’ group, you will employ high-throughput biochemical methods to discover and characterize the next generation of genome engineering tools. We fuse deep sequencing, automation, classical biochemistry and bioinformatics through engineering and collaboration. We benefit from cutting-edge equipment and brilliant minds that span EMBL research institutes and the VU Life Sciences Center.
You will also work closely with Dr Jones to keep the laboratory operating smoothly and efficiently by coordinating administrative and organizational tasks. You will be valued as one of the critical factors in our team’s success!
In the Jones Lab, you can expect colleagues that share your passion for research and team-based contributions to the life sciences community. You will build connections with international research teams, receive mentoring in scientific development and career advancement, and solve pressing biological problems with interdisciplinary strategies.
