|Research Field:||Biological sciences|
|Sub Research Field:|
This position is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 HEALIKICK project (grant 874889) (https://glasgow.thecemi.org/ourresearch/healikick), aiming to deliver next generation bone graft materials for the repair of major critical defects. The consortium includes academics from the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde, Navarra, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and Biodonostia Health Research Institute, along with industrial partners at HistoCell, Bilbao.
The Cipitria Lab – Bioengineering in Regeneration and Cancer at Biodonostia Health Research Institute, San Sebastián, Spain (https://cipitrialab.com) is seeking a full-time laboratory manager to join our interdisciplinary team of engineers and scientists. Research in our lab aims to understand how biophysical and biochemical properties of native extracellular matrix and synthetic biomaterials guide cell response in tissue regeneration, cancer dormancy and bone metastasis.
Job tasks and responsibilities:
-Contribute to general lab aspects: maintaining laboratory protocols, facilitating day-to-day lab work, preparing solutions and aliquots, stock maintenance, ordering general lab supplies, maintaining inventory, laboratory budget, safety records, provide general lab support and training as needed.
-Processing bone samples from large bone defect animal models. As part of HEALIKICK, the technician will coordinate sample collection with hospitals involved and process them in collaboration with the Histology platform at Biodonostia.
-Collaboration with other ongoing projects in the lab. We perform a large variety of experiments including work in biomaterials and polymer science, synthesis and characterization of scaffolds and hydrogels, in vitro cell culture and multiscale correlative characterization of tissue samples. General lab experience in a biomedical lab is welcome.
Professional development opportunities:
Our lab maintains an active part in Germany. We offer excellent training possibilities regarding novel techniques and increasing responsibilities within the lab. The project will involve travels to the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and Charité University Hospital Berlin, as well as interaction with consortium partners in the UK and Spain.
