Ignacio Mir-Sanchis at the IMS-Lab at Umeå University in Sweden offers a PhD position to study gene expression and DNA replication of staphylococcal mobile genetic elements (including phages) using a multidisciplinary approach: genetics and molecular biology, biochemistry, cryoEM, X-ray, etc.
My client, a Northeast US-based CRO, wants to hire a Microbiologist with phage experience for their phage and other contract research programs to provide lab-bench and technical support, especially taking a lead with phage-based programs.

Primary responsibility will be titration of phage in clinical trial specimens, validation and qualification studies. Full-time position with a diverse and productive team taking on research challenges from the biotech & pharmaceutical industries.

Desired candidate will have a good, working knowledge of phage biology. BS or MS in any relevant field, but experience with phage bench techniques such as titration and storage of phages is more important than degree level. Dependent on the candidate’s abilities, the role would include writing of protocols and SOPs. Experience with molecular biology and qPCR is also desirable.

Please contact [email protected] with your CV and cover letter.
