The Gene Therapy Program (GTP) is entering a new era of unprecedented opportunity with great potential to reshape the face of medicine as we know it. Our discoveries have set the stage for successful treatments and possibly even cures for devastating genetic diseases.
The laboratory of Dr. Jim Wilson, at GTP of the University of Pennsylvania has been a leader in the development of innovative vector technology for close to three decades. We have emerged as the ‘go-to’ organization for public and private partners, who want to participate in the gene therapy space. Currently we are positioned to lead another round of vector innovation and establish pre-clinical and clinical proof-of-concept in therapeutic applications of in-vivo genome editing.
We are currently looking for a Laboratory Services Assistant B, to join our Laboratory Operations Team.
As the Laboratory Services Assistant, you will perform general laboratory support functions including but not limited to: * Inventorying and stocking supplies across all research labs for use by scientists. * Breaking down pallets of supplies and placing them in stockrooms. * Receiving, tracking and distributing packages of research materials and supplies directly to scientists. * Monitoring and maintaining supply of lab gases (liquid nitrogen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide), including relocation of tanks throughout facility. * Assisting in equipment cleaning, disinfecting, replacement and relocation. * Preparation of laboratory stock solutions.
