Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

We offer a position in our Protein science team under the supervision of Opher Gileadi. Our research team works with a variety of biological samples like human proteins, plasmids, bacteria and antibodies and your assignment is to aliquote, structure and document these samples.

Your mission

Your role is to help us structure our biological samples by taking samples in and out of our low temperature freezers, aliquote samples into new 2D barcoded tubes, and meticulously and accurately register each sample in excel. You will need to report your hours in a time recording system

Your profile

We are looking for a summer student that is eager to do an exact and careful job. You must be brave enough to ask if there are any uncertainties or if anything goes wrong.
