Job Abstract

The Faculty of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) on the College of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada invitations purposes for Analysis Assistant/Technician 4 positions to work on a team-based mission spanning pluripotent stem cells, lung differentiation, and genomics within the de Boer ( ), Shakiba ( ) , Yachie (, Zandstra ( ), and Lynn ( ) labs.

The mission 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 mission entails the usage of single-cell RNA-seq, DNA barcoding, reprogramming, and lung cell differentiation.

The Schools of Drugs and Utilized Science have partnered to create the SBME, a brand new flagship entity at UBC, and a high strategic precedence for the College and each Schools. The SBME is a nucleus for schooling and coaching, analysis, and innovation in biomedical engineering, creating new information, new educational 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.
