Your main responsibilities are:
  • Sanger sequencing method development for quality control of nucleic acids including sample preparation, practical execution, data analysis and reporting
  • Development of procedures to analyze and evaluate Sanger sequencing data in a GMP environment
  • Transfer of analytical procedures into quality control departments (GMP)
  • Scientific guidance and supporting troubleshooting activities for Sanger sequencing in release analytics

What you have to offer.

  • PhD in analytical (bio-)chemistry or similar field or M. sc. and relevant subject-specific working experience
  • Profound knowledge in the development of analytical assays, especially Sanger Sequencing and PCR-based methods. Experience in analyzing sequencing data desirable.
