We are looking for a research technician in the Functional Genomics group of Prof. Dr. Lude Franke, as part of the Genetics department within the University Medical Center Groningen. In this group of bioinformaticians, PhD students and postdocs we aim to combine state-of-the-art experimental assays with big data analyses to dissect the influence of genetics on gene regulation, thereby contributing to our understanding of complex diseases.
In this job you will work closely together with PhD students and/or a postdoc to help setting up a massively parallel reporter assay (MPRA) to define the regulatory potential of non-coding somatic mutations that have been recurrently associated with cancer. After filtering for mutations with regulatory potential as a next step, you will help setting up a CRISPR-coupled single-cell RNA-/DNA-sequencing screen that will measure the downstream consequences on gene expression. Additionally, you will be involved in the generation of single-cell multi-omics data using blood extracted from individuals from the population-based cohort Lifelines.
The UMCG has a preventive Hepatitis B policy. The UMCG can provide you with the vaccination, should it be required for your position.
