The current COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted that we are ill equipped to monitor and track the evolution of emergent pathogens, and we fail to be proactive in the management of outbreaks. Kromek is 24 months into a 5-year contract with the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the development of a mobile pathogen detection system, to detect biological threats, such as SARS-CoV-2. Kromek is looking for a full-time permanent molecular biology laboratory assistant to join the growing Biotechnology group.
The laboratory assistant will be immediately responsible for the day to day running of the lab and maintenance of instruments. Working with the rest of the team, they will implement the protocols that are developed in-house, record the procedures followed and record all findings. They should be able to communicate and report to a diverse group of scientists and lay people.
