The research group of Dr. Thomas Greb located at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) of Heidelberg University is seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to fill the post of a full-time research technician in the group starting in the second half of 2015 for initially three years.
The Greb lab uses the process of lateral growth in plants as an example for cell specification and tissue formation in higher organisms. The group aims to increase the state of knowledge about molecular mechanisms regulating this process, which is fundamental for many aspects of plant growth including mechanical stability of shoots and roots, long-distance transport and the production of biomass in general and wood in particular.
The research technician appointed will have the opportunity to gain experience in in situ techniques like RNA hybridizations, histology and the detection of reporter gene activity. He/she will also be responsible for the day-to-day management of the laboratory, including ordering. The successful candidate will have a background in histology and microscopy. Proven experience in basic molecular biology work (DNA preparation, plasmid construction, PCR) is also required. Experience in working with plants is desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate should be willing to learn new techniques and be able to coordinate and monitor his/her own work plan. He/she should be able to work independently as well as in a team, be well organised and prepared to work in an international environment. Good interpersonal communication skills in German and English are essential. For more information consult the COS homepage: http://www.cos.uni-heidelberg.de/?l=_e
