The Director of Molecular Lab is expected to possess and understand major molecular biology laboratory work skills and genomics research experimental platforms, with experience leading large scale molecular biology processing such as extractions of biomolecules from human tissues for research projects. PhD or equivalent in molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field required; master’s degree with five years’ experience is considered PhD equivalent. A wide range of hands-on experiences using molecular and biochemical experimental methods including major genomic experimental platforms. Experience in proteomic experimental platforms is a plus. 10+ years of work experience after post-doctoral training preferred. 5+ year’s managerial experience preferred.
