  • Ph.D. in Cell Biology, Virology, Molecular Biology, or similar discipline.
  • Some post-doctoral research experience and hands-on knowledge of mammalian cell culture, viral delivery vectors, PCR, gene editing, NGS, RNA-Seq analysis, flow cytometry, and related advanced cell and molecular biology technologies. 
  • Ability to clearly, concisely, and effectively communicate with both internal and external researchers.
  • Effective collaboration with team members and external researchers to carry out projects.
