BRAIN regularly incorporates life science students into project work within the company. This work always accompanies the completion of a diploma or Master‘s thesis and in some cases it can be part of a practical semester lasting at least 6 months.
We currently offer a lab project for a

Master/Diploma Thesis in Molecular Cell Biology

which is suitable for highly motivated students who have strong interest in establishing state-of-the-art cell culture techniques. The proposed project is part of our primary cell development program. It involves the molecular genetic identification as well as the functional characterization and genetic manipulation of human primary and progenitor cells.
We offer the opportunity to extend your knowledge in the following methodologies:
  • Isolation, cultivation, transfection and viral transduction of human primary cells and cell lines.
  • Gene expression analysis by qRT-PCR, Western blot and immunofluorescence microscopy.
  • Genome editing by using CRISPR/Cas9 technology.
  • Cloning of reporter constructs for cell detection and sorting using FACS/MACS.
  • Functional characterization of ion channels, receptors and intracellular signalling pathways.
We expect the following qualifications and skills:
  • M.Sc. student in (Molecular or Cellular) Biology or related studies in Life Sciences.
  • Highly motivated and keen to independently push a project.
  • Advanced practical experience in tissue culture techniques is a must.
  • Hands-on experience in one or more of the following techniques is required: DNA cloning techniques, immunofluorescence microscopy, FACS.

Earliest starting date would be May 2015.
