Working at IGI and Current Job Listings
At the IGI, we envision a world in which genome-engineering innovations benefit humanity and are accessible to all.
Benefits of working at the IGI include:
We are looking for passionate people who share our vision, values, and drive. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to our commitment to excellence, diversity, and inclusion in academia. We encourage individuals to apply who may have had non-traditional career paths, taken time off for family/personal reasons, or excelled in careers outside academia. Compensation is determined by guidelines set forth by home campus.
Please note that posted positions are open even if the first review date has passed.
Research & Development Engineer (UC Berkeley)
Clinical Laboratory Scientist (UC Berkeley)
Postdoctoral Researcher, microbial genome bioinformatics (Banfield lab, UC Berkeley)
Postdoctoral Researcher, CRISPR diagnostic development engineer (Doudna and Fletcher labs, UC Berkeley). We seek an engineer with experience in microfluidics and/or developing measurement instrumentation to work with an exciting team of engineers and biochemists to produce a point-of-care molecular diagnostic device based on CRISPR chemistry. Skills in rapid prototyping, electronics and optics are needed; experience with enzyme-based assays is desirable but not essential. Applicants who have transferred technologies from laboratory prototypes to small-scale manufactured devices are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will work in a dynamic laboratory environment to design a process that incorporates working CRISPR detection chemistry into a phone-based detection device. Send your cover letter and CV to Jennifer Doudna at email@example.com with "CRISPR diagnostics postdoc application" as the subject.
Our investigators accept graduate students from their home departments through university graduate programs.
If you would like to perform research related to our program areas, please email your CV and cover letter to the principal investigator listed on the project page most relevant to your interests.
