Laboratory Executive (Telomere Biology)

We are seeking a highly-motivated candidate for a laboratory executive position available in the Kappei Lab at the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore. Our young and international team addresses research questions on nucleic acid-protein interactions with quantitative mass spectrometry, cell biological and genetic approaches applied to cancer research. Specifically, the successful candidate will be actively involved in a research project investigating telomere-binding proteins in hematologic malignancies. This project will span a variety of experimental approaches, e.g. gene editing of cancer cell lines, expression analysis of mRNA and protein as well as various mass spectrometry-based approaches to study DNA-protein and protein-protein interactions. Overall the laboratory executive will support the research team in terms of research, laboratory and administrative needs. 


  • Degree in life sciences or equivalent; fresh graduates are welcome to apply
  • Excellent communication skills and good team spirit
  • Fluent in spoken and written English
  • Outstanding organizational skills

Practical experience with proteomics research and molecular biology techniques are an added advantage but not a requirement.
