+ DNA delivery and mammalian cell transfection

+ Genomic editing in mammalian cell lines (TALEN and CRISPR based editing, design and implementation)

+ Flow cytometric analysis

+ Molecular biology

+ Plasmid subcloning, DNA preparations, sequencing, in vitro transcription of RNA, PCR

This individual will also be expected to support and participate in R&D and project management meetings.
