Extensive experience in cell culture work and different microscopy techniques (ICC, IHC, EM). The applicant should preferably also have experience from work with EVs. In addition, excellent proficiency in both spoken and written English is essential. We are looking for an energetic and passionate person who fits in, and actively contributes to our team
