  • Extensive expertise in differentiating iPSC into Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells (HPCs) and microglia 
  • Experience in optimizing iPSC differentiation protocols
  • Demonstration application of quality control assays to quantify successful intermediate and differentiated cell populations
  • Experience in scaling iPSC-differentiation protocols

Education/Skills Experience Required:

  • 3+ years of experience working with iPSC technology 
  • 1+ years of experience working with iPSC to microglia differentiations. 
  • Preferred Ph.D. or M.S. in the Biological Sciences or +5 years experience in biotech industry

Demonstration of the following in a professional setting:

  • Highly organized 
  • An excellent team player
  • Worked successfully in cross-disciplinary teams

We offer competitive salary, benefits, and opportunities for professional growth in an intellectually stimulating and fast-paced environment. These include medical/dental/vision coverage, 401(k) and FSA plans, a flexible vacation policy, paid parental leave, and support for relevant training.
