Qualification Details

Candidates should have completed bachelor’s or master’s work in a life science discipline, or the equivalent. Experience with one or more of the following: cell culturing, molecular biology, histology, zebrafish husbandry, mouse husbandry and preparation, FELASA or Dutch WoD article 9/12/13 certification; are a plus.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The Biocluster of the Imaging Physics Department in TU Delft is a small-scale biological facility encompassing a zebrafish aquarium, some ML1 biolabs, an ML2 tissue culture lab, and a small mouse stable. The facility is well embedded and used by various labs. Due to an expansion of the facility, we are looking to hire an extra support staff member.

The successful candidate will work closely with an international team of BSc, MSc, and PhD students to facilitate day-to-day lab operations. This will include:

  • Inventory management of durables and consumables (ordering, stocking, dishwashing, autoclaving)
  • Maintaining stock of biologicals and chemicals (making of buffers, solutions)
  • Caretaker duties (food preparation, feeding, and maintaining aquarium and stable systems; training will be provided if needed), including occasional animal care on weekends and holidays (max 3 hrs/month during irregular hours)

The successful candidate will join existing support staff: tasks will be divided, and the work can therefore be as diverse as desired. Additional tasks will, in consultation, include some of the following:

  • Working with and maintaining stable cell lines and acute cell preparations (HEK, HeLa, Neural Progenitor Cells, Neurons)
  • Molecular Biology support (Gibson, restriction enzymes, golden gate, histology, gels)
  • Necessary administrative duties (husbandry records, safety reports, chemical and GGO registration)
  • Training others in the above tasks

We are offering a small-scale, ambitious, friendly, and supportive environment and are looking for a candidate who enjoys being in a scientific and academic environment, collaborates well with a variety of people including students, is methodical and organized, and is willing to keep their eyes open and not afraid to bring up things that can be improved. Once primary tasks are taken care of, growth in various directions is possible, including contributions to scientific projects that will be recognized with co-authorship.
