APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: 15 May 2021
The Human Technopole Foundation is looking for the Senior Manager of Multi-omic Technologies, which is part of the Genomics Core Facility.
The successful candidate will report directly to the Head of the Genomics Facility.
They will be responsible for setting up and maintaining a facility capable of state-of-the-art, high-throughput sequencing-based multi-omics technologies applied to a variety of bio-samples, including bulk tissues and single cells. Strong emphasis will be put on single-cell multi omics approaches combining multiple functional layers, including in-situ profiling and cell tracing approaches for spatially and temporally resolved single cell analytics.
They will also be expected to contribute to the development of new protocols and the rapid standardization/implementation of new approaches.
New methodologies are expected to derive from the collaborative interactions with other groups at HT or by implementing selected priority areas.
A key mission will be to enable internal and external users to make use of the facility. They will be involved in the recruitment, training and mentoring of facility staff.
