The CNIC has been conceived to develop research of excellence, competitive and of international relevance in relation to cardiovascular diseases. The CNIC has a research center of 24,000 m2, located in Madrid, with more than 6,000 m2 for laboratories equipped with a state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment.

The laboratory of Prof. Silvia Priori is seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated Lab Technician with strong lab knowledge interested in joining our research team. The team of Molecular Cardiology is a senior group at CNIC dedicated to the study of cardiac arrhythmias with a special focus on developing gene therapy strategies for the treatment of inherited cardiac diseases that lead to sudden cardiac death. We study cardiac electrical properties in knock-in mice and pigs recapitulating disease phenotypes similar to the ones observed in humans. We use state of the art technology to assess calcium imaging in healthy and diseased cells. We also use tissue samples from patients and controls to obtain induced pluripotent stem cells-derived myocytes and super-resolution microscopy imaging to dissect protein abnormalities at nanoscopic level in myocytes.

Functions

Perform several cell biology techniques including cell cultures, PCR/ real time PCR, western blot, Cell Sorting and differentiation of cardiac myocytes from induced pluripotent stem cells. Given the focus of the laboratory in the study of animal models of cardiac inherited diseases (mice, guinea pigs, pigs) the job will include isolation of cardiac myocytes from the whole heart for electrophysiology study, for microscopy evaluation, for protein extraction.

Organize and set-up laboratories as required, and to work as part of a team ensuring that sufficient consumables are in stock, equipment is maintained and in full working order and to oversee the compliance with regulations of the research that is conducted.
