Job Description
Applied StemCell, Inc. is a leading gene editing and stem cell therapy CRO company founded in 2008 in Milpitas, California. ASC supports gene editing and stem cell therapy development processes with two high-impact platforms: CRISPR and TARGATT™ genome editing and iPSC stem cell technologies. ASC's proprietary TARGATT™ technology enables site-specific, stable integration of large DNA fragments into a safe harbor locus. ASC is also a member of the National Institute of Technology and Standards (NIST) Genome Editing Consortium where we provide benchmark materials using our unique expertise in stem cell technology and genetic engineering to establish measurements and standards for characterizing genome editing outputs using stem cells.

We are currently looking for a Research Associate to join our Cell Biology group. This is a hands-on lab-based role at the forefront of Genome Editing Technology with an emphasis on effective delivery, protocol troubleshooting and putting ideas into action. The candidate will work on the generation of gene edited cell lines, including cell culture, transfection, single-cell cloning, expansion and cryopreservation.

The ideal candidate should have:
  • Work closely with a multi-function team to deliver gene edited iPSC cell lines and a variety of other cell types.
  • Participate in product development using iPSC reprogramming and differentiation protocols.
  • Apply scientific knowledge, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities to troubleshoot and refine methods and assays.
