DefiniGEN are seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated individual to produce our cell culture media and help with the stock management of the laboratory.
DefiniGEN were founded in 2013 as a spin-out from Cambridge University, we use a patented differentiation process in combination with in-house gene editing to differentiate human iPSC to hepatocytes which are then used to support our client’s work in developing next generation liver therapeutics.
This is a laboratory-based position that will require the preparation of media and the combination of the basic components that comprise them, therefore a good grasp of volumes, ratios and laboratory level maths will be essential for the role. The post holder will also be involved with the manipulation of mammalian cell cultures, so an understanding of basic human biology in combination with an attention to detail would be advantageous. This is an entry-level position so may suit a recent school leaver who has science A-levels (or equivalent) or someone who is returning to a laboratory-based career after a break.
