Vacancy: Scientific Officer

The University of Cape Town HIV Diversity and Pathogenesis Group, (PI: Prof Carolyn Williamson) is looking for a motivated, suitably qualified person, with a strong background in molecular biology and sequencing, for the position of Scientific Officer (PC8) OR Senior Scientific Officer (PC9) to work in the SARS-CoV-2 Sequencing Group. We are looking for someone to start work in early January 2022. Due to the urgent nature of this recruitment process we will consider strong candidates that meet only the PC8 requirements and show potential to be trained to perform most of the skills detailed in the PC9 (see advert and job descriptions PC8/PC9). While this is an opportunity to be part of an exciting HIV research team this post will be focused on SARS-CoV-2 work. The SARS-CoV-2 epidemic is not predictable, and if there is sufficient time in the future, the position may include contribution to HIV focussed projects.
