Pre-Clinical Laboratory

Portal South at the Preclinical Laboratorium (PKL) provides support for importing and exporting alive mouse strains, embryos or sperms for researchers around the world.

The facility offers also cryopreservation and re-derivation services. Re-derivation, also called cleansing or embryo transfer, is provided for all researchers who need to import infected mouse strains and will have their research using these strains in our facilities. Furthermore the facility offers in vitro fertilization (IVF) for those who import embryos or sperms.

Cryopreservation, normally used in combination with IVF, is a technique that gives the opportunity for the researcher to save valuable strains in freeze banks in order to generate alive animals when needed.

We are seeking a highly motivated person to join the core-facility Pre-Clinical Laboratory for a part time employment (30%).

The position will include planning and organizing the teamwork for the group, implementation of new technology, acquire the appropriate permission for export and import from the authorities and apply for core facility funding.
