We know that behind every scientific breakthrough, there is a deep infrastructure of talented people driving the life sciences industry and making it possible for scientists and clinicians to make new strides. We are dedicated to finding the very best person for every aspect of our work because the innovations and discoveries that we enable together will lead to better technologies, better treatments, and a better future. Find out how you can make a 10x difference.About The Role
We are looking for an outstanding individual to join our Molecular Biology team as a Senior Research Associate/Scientist.
The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in the development, optimization, and application of molecular biology techniques for solving complex biological problems, especially in the broad field of immunology and/or tumor biology.
Using your experience, you will ensure that our new products are compatible with relevant biological sample types and designing optimized workflows for product use. You will work with a cross-disciplinary team of biologists and chemists, as well as colleagues in computational biology, software, manufacturing, and marketing from all across the company. Beyond the technical qualifications, you must be highly goal-oriented, inquisitive, organized, independent, collaborative, willing to learn new techniques and concepts and be able to thrive in an atmosphere of shifting demands and priorities.What You Will Be Doing
To Be Successful, You Will Need
- Contribute to the development and optimization of sample preparation procedures for spatial genomic and proteomic assays that yield fundamental improvements in data quality
- Planning and execution of experiments, in-depth analysis, and reporting of thorough documentation and presentations
- Plan and perform systematic workflow and reagent optimization by modeling, identification of critical factors and use of formal design of experiment (DOE) approaches
- Work closely with computational biologists to interpret data generated by novel and optimized assay schemes
- Contribute molecular biology and immunology expertise to cross-disciplinary product development teams to ensure project milestones are met, product performs to specifications
Additionally, We'd Like To See
- A Ph.D. in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, or similar fields with a minimum of 1+ years postdoctoral or industry experience
- Meticulous attention to detail and strong record keeping skills
