Scientist/Senior Scientist (Transgenic Technologies)
A fantastic opportunity has just become available with one of our world-renown clients in the West of Scotland. We are looking for an experienced individual that is keen to progress their career further by working within an already successful team. This is a permanent position on a full time basis, with a starting salary of £23,800 – £39,900 depending on experience. Excellent benefits are also offered.

The role
The primary role of this position will be to support state-of-the-art production of genetically engineered in vivo cancer models designed for discovery research.
 You will be expected to work as part of a team, assisting and conducting procedures required for the production and maintenance of transgenic models
 This is primarily achieved by the application of a variety of embryo manipulation techniques including microinjection, cryopreservation and in vitro fertilisation
 Other duties include colony management for the support of transgenic projects, genotyping and importation of cryopreserved materials for rederivation

To Apply
To apply for this role, you will possess the following skills, qualifications and experiences:
 Ability to work independently and in close collaboration with the scientists and technicians associated with the transgenic projects
 Be highly motivated and have good communication, project management and organisational skills
 Maintaining a flexible approach to your working pattern is necessary as there may be some weekend work required as part of this role
 Possess a Bachelors or Master’s degree in molecular genetics or similar
 Have a good understanding of the molecular genetic techniques underlying gene targeting and genome editing
 Previous experience of pre-implantation embryo handling and microinjection would be a significant advantage; however the client can provide the necessary training for candidates who can demonstrate excellent troubleshooting, planning/organisational capability and have a relevant scientific background
