We are seeking a cell biologist to join the project team working to optimize existing methods for identification and isolation of rare CTBs. RareCyte has recently been selected to participate in an international program that has set an ambitious goal of reducing the incidence of stillbirth by half. The focus of our project involves novel non-invasive characterization of the placenta via the identification and transcriptional profiling of circulating trophoblasts(CTB) using RareCyte's established technology for rare blood cell analysis. In addition to the experience and qualifications listed below, this individual is able to think creatively and is driven by curiosity and problem solving.
RareCyte is a life sciences company focused on the development and commercial sales of transformational platforms that include instruments, consumables and services for multiplex tissue analysis in spatial biology and rare cell detection and characterization for liquid biopsy. Our platforms have been adopted by leading research institutions and BioPharma companies world-wide for research and clinical programs. The RareCyte platforms have the potential to become the leading discovery/translational/diagnostic platforms for oncology, immunology, maternal-fetal health and infectious disease. Responsibilities:
  • Develop robust methods for identifying and isolating rare CTBs in human blood using antibodies and automated staining instrumentation
  • Work closely with molecular biology scientists to optimize methods for sequencing compatibility
  • Write workplans for CTB identification and isolation validation studies
  • Plan, execute, analyze and present experimental results
  • Oversee and guide research associate responsibilities which includes project assignment, planning and executing, analyzing experiments and presentation of results
  • Apply scientific creativity and embrace rational risk-taking in addressing technological challenges
  • Establish experimental protocols to transfer methods and reagents to research associates and the production team

  • 2 - 5 years of experience applying and developing antibody-based assays
  • Experience with techniques of cell culture and processing
  • Experience with the following: immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, microscopy including multiplex microscopy, bead-based immunocapture purification and flow cytometry, cell culture, single cell analysis techniques
  • Familiarity with biostatistics
  • Excellent organizational and prioritization skills with a strong attention to scientific detail (for lab work, presentations, etc.)
  • Solid scientific writing skills
