Now, we are seeking a skilled scientist to join our team in Gothenburg Sweden, where the role will focus on developing a novel technology for genome engineering.

Candidate should express enthusiasm and motivation to pursue a competitive research at the forefront of the genome editing technology and:
(a) hold degree in Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology (or a related professional degree), or
(b) have a significant relevant experience working with a precise genome editing/molecular biology environment.

It is essential to have good social and communication skills, be collaborative and a strong team player and be an innovative thinker.
