Descripción de la oferta de empleo

We are seeking for a technician to become part of the Molecular Microbial Ecology Group ( of the University of Alicante. The group has a wide experience in microbial ecology, genomics and viral metagenomics of hypersaline environments and marine systems, including marine invertebrate microbiota. The technician position is opened in the frame of the H project MetaFluidics (“Advanced toolbox for rapid and cost-effective functional metagenomic screening -microbiology meets microfluidics”), which includes the participation of 5 companies, 4 universities and 4 research organizations from 6 different countries. The aim of Metafluidics is to replace the technologies currently used to study genetic material obtained from environmental samples with a new approach based on the implementation of functional screening of metagenomic libraries in microfluidic droplets. The hired technician will be involved in the analysis of viral communities from hypersaline environments using isolation techniques, genomics, metagenomics and metaproteomics. Candidates should have a degree in Biology or equivalent as well as experience in isolation and characterization of haloviruses, metaproteomics of viral communities from hypersaline environments, bioinformatic analysis of viral genomes and metagenomes, plasmids and fosmid viral metagenomic library construction, viral counting using flow cytometry and optical techniques, and sampling hypersaline environments. Candidates must be team players interested in collaborating with the MetaFluidics partners and have good oral and written English skills.
