Automata has been partnering with the Advanced Sequencing Facility at The Francis Crick Institute to automate many of their workflows - currently 5 workflows and counting.
The ASF’s workflows are being automated using Automata’s LINQ platform, a combined software and hardware solution that digitally and robotically connects workflows end to end, removing manual interventions meaning the scientists at the facility have more time to analyse, discover and innovate.
The Crick is now looking for a Senior Laboratory Research Scientist – Automation, Genome Editing] to work at the ASF on a unique project at the intersection of assay development and automation.
This UKRI-funded project is a collaboration between the ASF, the Crick Genetic Modification Service and Automata. The successful candidate will be leveraging the automation capabilities of Automata’s integrated LINQ platform to develop a robust and efficient assay for the genetic characterisation of genetically modified embryos in GeMS.
The post will be based at the Advanced Sequencing Facility as part of a team of 17 scientists who provide Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) support to research groups at The Crick, and the successful candidate will also receive support from Automata’s scientists and engineers.
