dear Recruiting team,


i would like to apply for a position Lab Scientist.

i have a master in biology and a phd degree in Genetics.

i have worked for many years on the field of Microbiology.

for the last ten years i have worked as a post-doc Researcher in the laboratory of molecular Cell biology at the department of molecular Microbiology at flanders institute for Biotechnology (vib) and kuleuven in belgium.

before, i worked as a Researcher in the laboratory of biochemical Genetics at saint-petersburg state University in russia and for the Biotechnology company biotech ltd (PHP?menu=england">, producing recombinant interleukin 2. here i was responsible for the genetic modification of pichia pastoris yeast.

as a Student i did a stage in the laboratoire de génétique moléculaire de la neurotransmission et des processus neurodegeneratif of hôpital de la pitié salpetrière in paris, france. i practiced there in two-hybrid system analysis.

during my work at vib i characterized the structure/function relationship in membrane Proteins using scam analysis, site-directed mutagenesis, bioanalytical methods, computer modelling. i screened chemical compounds for the agonist action on the signaling function of membrane Proteins. i successfully searched for substrate-binding sites in membrane transporters.

i am familiar with Assay development, screening and Analytics.

i am excellent at molecular biology methods (Molecular Cloning, DNA, RNA isolation, DNA recombinant techniques, directed (site-directed) and random mutagenesis (chemical and UV mutagenesis), library construction, Gene overexpression/deletion/partial deletion, tagged constructs). i am familiar with qPCR, Microarray, Confocal Microscopy, fluorescent techniques.

i am familiar with Sequencing and i used sequence-based Bioinformatics Software packages and ms office during my work.

i am skilled in application of biochemical Assays (Electrophoresis, Protein Purification, western, ELISA, Enzyme Characterization, Enzyme activity Assays, radio-ligand-binding).

i used daily methods of Microbiology like microbial strain cultivation, transformation, crossing, media preparation and etc.

i have a solid knowledge of Good Laboratory Practice.

during my work i was involved in writing of grant Applications and reports, preparation of scientific articles for publication.
