We are Kiadis, when it comes to life-threatening diseases, we are one family. Kiadis is leveraging the natural strengths of human immune systems to source the best cells to produce innovative therapies for life-threatening diseases. We are focused on NK cell research & development to maximize the potential of NK cell therapeutics, creating cutting-edge science in an exciting and emerging field of cell therapy, immune-oncology and infectious diseases.

 

In support of the development of our innovative NK cell therapies in infectious diseases such as coronavirus, we are looking for a Research Technician based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

 

The role

As a Research Technician, you are an important member of our integral research team. You’ll work form our state-of-the-art laboratory in Amsterdam and help to conduct immunological laboratory research studies. Focused to further fuel innovation in our current pipeline and to assist us reaching our goal: helping patients in need. Day to day you will:

  • Be responsible for conducting laboratory research, experiments and scientific investigation for development of cell therapeutics.
  • Document experiments, analyze results, produce & prepare research reports on scientific progress.
  • Work collaboratively with the Scientists and Director to conduct research directed at developing new therapeutics.
  • Work on cell cultures, immunologic assays, genomic analysis, DNA molecular biology methods and flowcytometry and/or live cell imaging.
  • Support routine tasks relating to laboratory operations.

 

The ideal candidate

We are looking for a Research Technician who has experience in cell culture, particularly culturing primary immune cells (even better if you have experience with isolation of PBMCs). As you are not only spending your time around NK-cells but also around people, we are looking for someone that likes to work in a team. You are honest and open, and believe clear communication helps in the process to develop great research. You also possess the following requirements:

  • Advanced degree (BSc or MSc) in cell biology, immunology, biochemistry, virology or related field.
  • 2-5 years of laboratory research experience and general knowledge of life science laboratory work & techniques.
  • Fluency in English, other languages are a plus.
  • Experience in running bio-assays, for example T cell/NK cell cytotoxicity assays, stimulation assays.
  • Experience with flow cytometry /FACS and/or live cell imaging by fluorescence microscopy.
  • Knowledge of standard immunological techniques with a focus on measuring of cytokines ELISA/Luminex/CBA.

It would be great if in addition you either have #1 experience with molecular biology think of analyzing signaling pathways, single cell RNA sequencing or CRISPR,  or #2 have experience with virology techniques think of neutralization assays, virus particles and PCR.

 

What we offer

A challenging position in an innovative biotechnology company. Working in a fast-paced dynamic environment brings the opportunity to make your own mark within the organization.

You will be rewarded with a competitive remuneration package, the opportunity for personal development and to contribute to making a huge difference for patients.
