About the role:
We are looking for an exceptional scientist to drive new research and product development efforts in our Molecular Biology department. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of developing innovative molecular biology protocols for solving complex biological problems, as well as experience with in situ hybridization, immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry. You should be driven by making great products and enjoy working in a truly multi-disciplinary environment. You will interact closely with colleagues in computational biology, software, chemistry, and microfluidics.
What you will be doing:
- Conceive and develop novel assays using molecular biology and microscopy techniques (e.g. immunofluorescence or in situ hybridization) for applications such as barcoding of biological molecules in tissues
- Plan and perform systematic workflow and reagent optimization by modeling, identification of critical factors and use of formal design of experiment (DOE) approaches
- Contribute molecular biology and microscopy expertise to cross-disciplinary product development teams
- Work closely with computational biologists to interpret data generated by novel and optimized assay schemes
- Work closely with process development staff to develop quality control and manufacturing strategies for novel or optimized reagents
To be successful in this role you will need:
- A PhD in molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field with a minimum of 3 years post-graduate experience in academia and/or industry
- Proven ability to design novel molecular biology assay schemes, as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications, published patents, or commercialized products
- Microscopy skills, including multiplex antibody hybridization
- Familiarity with NGS library preparation and principles of sequencing technologies
- Strong organizational skills
- Strong written and oral communication skills
- Strong troubleshooting and problem-solving skills
- Ability to work in a fast-paced and quickly changing environment
- Desire to build game-changing technologies and impact the world of life science research
Additional desired skills
- Experience with tissue arrays
- Single-cell genomics, functional genomics, or immunology
