We are looking for a temporary R&D Associate in our VelociGene group. This person will perform genomic DNA isolation utilizing state-of-the-art automation on embryonic stem cells, hiPS cells and tissue samples.

To exploit the power of mouse genetics to unlock the function of each gene in the genome, Regeneron scientists developed VelociGene®, a proprietary group of technologies for the modification of the mouse genome. The versatile VelociGene technology enables the tackling of projects ranging from a single base mutation to multi-gene deletions and the replacement of mouse genes with their human homologs. The pinnacle of the VelociGene technological achievements was the largest mammalian genetic engineering project ever accomplished: the creation of the VelocImmune™ mouse - a mouse capable of producing human antibodies that can serve as specific and potent therapeutics.

In this role a typical day may include:
• Robotic DNA isolation from embryonic stem cells and tissue samples
• Coordinating and tracking tissue sample lysates
• Receiving, unpacking and processing tissue samples from CRO
• Organization and maintenance of laboratory and laboratory equipment
• Ordering laboratory supplies

This role may be for you if:
• You are looking to grow and perfect your lab skills
• You are interested in automation

To be considered for this role you should have a Bachelor's degree in Biology or a relevant area, and 0-4 years of experience with standard molecular biology methods and a good understanding of genetics. We would like someone with experience with PCR, DNA isolation, and data analysis. Experience in high-throughput laboratory environment is preferred, as is experience with quantitative PCR methods, high-throughput processes, and robotic automation methods.
