Laboratory Manager (m/f)

We are involved in regional, national and international research collaborations and third-party funded projects and research consortia. The institute hosts state of the art equipment for cellular, viral and immunological research including biosafety level 1 to level 3 facilities. Then institute´s members are affiliated with local graduate school programs and contribute to the curricula of local master and PhD programs.  
 
Job description:

He/she will conduct versatile tasks ranging from organizing/supervising laboratory supplies and institute´s databases to the development and implementation of organizational measures that maintain a highly professional and effective laboratory organization and management. This not only includes scientific writing and project management but also involves managing laboratory equipment, reagents, protocols and collaborations, and extends to on- and offbaording processes of institute´s employees. He/she will support the institute´s director in the communication with collaborating laboratories, funding bodies and authorities.
