Reporting to the Principal Scientist, the successful candidate will carry out, support and develop methods to isolate and characterize complexes.
The role is based in the Research Division and will provide high quality protein-DNA complexes that will allow detailed experiments to be carried out to enable improvements in the quality and amount of sequence data generated.Other analyses by HPLC will be carried out when required, which may involve method development for large and small molecules. Some support in plasmid generation may also be required.
