Job Abstract

The College of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) on the College of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada invitations purposes for Analysis Assistant/Technician 3 positions to work on a team-based venture spanning pluripotent stem cells, lung differentiation, and genomics within the de Boer ( ), Shakiba ( ) , Yachie (, Zandstra ( ), and Lynn ( ) labs.

The venture is in collaboration with United Therapeutics and seeks to allow the strong, large-scale manufacturing of lung cells from patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The venture includes the usage of single-cell RNA-seq, DNA barcoding, reprogramming, and lung cell differentiation.

The Colleges of Medication and Utilized Science have partnered to create the SBME, a brand new flagship entity at UBC, and a prime strategic precedence for the College and each Colleges. The SBME is a nucleus for schooling and coaching, analysis, and innovation in biomedical engineering, creating new data, new tutorial and coaching packages, and fostering translation and innovation. UBC SBME distinguishes itself by deep coaching in biology, and engineering science and design, enabling SBME researchers to deal with essentially the most urgent biomedical challenges of the day. Our SBME college conduct analysis that advances our elementary understanding of human biology, and yields applied sciences and therapies that advance our well being and wellbeing.
