Scientists have made incredible advances in recent years, yet there’s still much they don’t understand about the inner workings of biology. Even after mapping the human genome, (an international effort that took more than a decade to complete), scientists still don’t know why some people with a particular variation in their DNA develop cancer, while others with the same variation don’t.

10x Genomics offers new perspectives on the inner workings of biology that can quickly lead to new insights. Our technology suite enable scientists to study biological systems at an unprecedented level of resolution. Our products have already helped scientists uncover important biological processes and identified previously unidentified cell types linked to cystic fibrosis, breast cancer, kidney disease and other major diseases. These discoveries will lead to better technologies, better treatments, and a better future. See how you can make an impact today.

Research Associate - Molecular Biology, Sweden 

We are looking for an outstanding individual to join the Molecular Biology team as a Research Associate/Senior Research Associate. The ideal candidate will have experience in the development of novel molecular biology assays for solving complex biological problems. He/she will work closely with scientists in the R&D team to evaluate and optimize new methods for library generation. The ideal candidate will have an educational background in one or more of the following disciplines: molecular biology, biochemistry, or related field. The candidate should have at least 4 years of relevant research experience in an academic or industrial setting. He/she should be driven by making great products and enjoy working in a truly multi-disciplinary environment. 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Support the development and optimization of novel molecular biology assay schemes for applications including molecular bar-coding, nucleic acid amplification, and library preparation strategies for single cell genomic assays
