An opportunity has arisen to work with Professor Molly Stevens and her team at Imperial College London, supporting ongoing experimental research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The role will involve performing key supporting tasks such as basic cell and tissue culture and isolation, biochemical assays, immunostaining, gene expression analysis (e.g. RNA and DNA extraction, PCR, etc.) and molecular cloning (e.g. bacterial transformation, plasmid purification, etc.). You will also provide support for instrumentation maintenance and training, as well as overseeing the efficient and smooth running of the laboratory.
