Open position for a part-time student research assistant

We have an open position for a part-time student research assistant available (ideal for students already in Bonn and interested in neuroscience):

The research assistant would primarily assist with the breeding of transgenic animals. The ideal candidate will have a background in neuroscience and experience in working independently in a life science laboratory environment. Particularly experience with handling animals and/or a FELASA certificate would be an advantage but not mandatory. We offer the opportunity to extend the knowledge and hands-on experience in animal handling and breeding, including genotyping by PCR.

Working hours can be negotiated and handled with some degree of flexibility, but are aimed at up to 10h per week for a duration of 12 months. The position is available immediately.

Payment will be according to the University of Bonn tariff (WHF/WHK). Applicants of any career stage (below PhD) will be considered if sufficiently experienced. The written and spoken languages in the lab are German and/or English.

Please include in your application (pdf only): CV (one page), a brief description of your laboratory expertise and skills and for how long you have acquired them, how many hours per week and what time period you would be available for.
