Description

We specialise in the recruitment of high quality candidates in the Life Sciences sector.  We have an excellent opportunity for a Senior Research Assistant (SRA) to join the Genomics Pipeline Group of a highly successful organisation based in Norwich.

The SRA will play a key role in automating, troubleshooting and streamlining both current and future pipelines.  The successful candidate will also assist production teams with the preparation of next-generation sequencing libraries.  The SRA’s work will support the Institute’s strategic science programme, the National Capability in Genomics and Single Cell Analysis.

Senior Research Assistant’s Key Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with other laboratory staff in Genomics Pipelines to plan, execute and deliver scheduled high throughput and novel techniques
  • Transition complex and cutting-edge laboratory processes onto the Institute’s installed base of liquid handling robotics platforms, as well as ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of laboratory automation.
  • Provide continuous improvements and extensions to current systems
  • Troubleshoot automated workflows to promptly return high-throughput pipelines to production and minimise downtime
  • Maintain accurate and timely records using LIMS and electronic notebook software
  • Draft and update Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for automated workflows
  • Contribute to the dissemination of automation protocols via publications and other media opportunities
  • Assist with the production of automated next-generation sequencing libraries
  • Deliver training to other RAs using automated protocols for deployment into production

Senior Research Assistant’s Education, Experience and Skills:

  • Masters degree, or preferably, PhD in Molecular Biology or equivalent relevant subject
  • Fully experienced in the performance of standard molecular biology laboratory techniques
  • Fully experienced in utilising liquid handling processes such as Beckmam Coulter, Perkin Elmer and Hamilton systems, including the development and optimisation of protocols
  • Experienced in writing scripts and developing protocols for liquid handling platforms
  • Experienced in writing automated scripts utilising commonly deployed lab automation software, such as Hamilton Venus software and Beckman Coulter Biomek
  • Familiarity with molecular cloning and modern DNA sequencing technologies
  • Experienced in the use of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS)
  • Experienced and confident use of Microsoft office
  • Ability to travel and work a non-conventional pattern at times
