Roswell Biotechnologies is a venture backed start-up transforming DNA sequencing with our molecular electronics sequencing platform designed to deliver the disruptive performance required for precision medicine. The platform technology, ENDSeq™ (Electronic Nano-Device Sequencing), deploys single molecule sensor nanotechnology in a scalable semiconductor chip format, to deliver a dramatic reduction in the cost of genome-sequencing with unprecedented speed, accuracy, and simplicity. Roswell is focused on delivering the molecular electronics chip and system that provides a $100, 1-hour whole human genome sequence. Roswell's leadership has unmatched experience in developing high-impact, high-tech devices for the Life Sciences, and bringing them to market globally. Our goals are big, our timelines are short, and we are building the team that will make it happen.

The scientist is a critical part of the team to develop procedures to interface biology with Nano electronics. This mission requires scientific expertise in several disciplines including chemistry, material science and molecular biology, especially with understanding in DNA/proteins. Strong candidates will have strong experience in surface, materials science, and biological conjugation chemistry. The candidate will be a key member of the R&D group and provide support and expertise to biosensor development and bioconjugation. The candidate will characterize novel approaches to engineer and integrate various proteins/DNA/peptides to a nano-sensor to elucidate functional biosensors. The ideal candidate can thrive in an extremely fast paced, dynamic environment, as part of a team of highly skilled, focused, and motivated people who believe in changing the world by creating a truly disruptive technology.

Specific responsibilities include:

· Applying surface and biological conjugation methods.

· engineering and integrating various proteins/DNA/peptides to nano-sensor to elucidate functional biosensors

· Designing and conducting experiments around conductive materials.

· Functionalization of metallic surfaces with small molecules and ligands.

· Working cross functionally with our assay development and biosensor areas in designing and conducting experiments related to binding, and assay development on our molecular electronics platform

· Documenting experimental procedures and results in lab notebooks.

· Compiling experimental results and presenting them at company meetings.

· Maintaining a well-organized, clean, and safe lab working environment.


· A Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical biology/biochemistry/biophysics/bioengineering with 0-2 years of post- doctoral experience OR a MS with 3-5 years of experience is required. Experience could be in industry or academia.

· U.S. Citizens, Green Card Holders, and those authorized to work in the U.S. for any employer will be considered. The position is in the Sorrento Valley area of San Diego.
