Passionate about making a difference in the world of cancer genomics?

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of this data. We’re on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings

We are looking for a Molecular Technician to support the development of new tests and processes for deployment in our clinical NGS lab.  Supporting Lead Scientists, this role involves the execution of advanced molecular techniques toward the development the most advanced sequencing platform in cancer care.

 

What You’ll Do:

  • Under the guidance of senior scientific staff, support the development of cutting-edge molecular assays for our high-throughput CAP/ CLIA/ NYSDOH accredited clinical lab
  • Assist in the troubleshooting and quality control initiatives
  • Assist with development of automated processes
  • Execute molecular protocols with a high degree of precision and attention to detail
  • Generate detailed documentation of experimental execution 

 

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree with 2+ years experience in a molecular lab or completion of an advanced technical certificate program with a strong molecular lab component
  • Highly organized and systematic, superb attention to detail and ability to complete tasks with a high degree of accuracy
  • Proven ability to learn new skills quickly and adapt to new processes smoothly
  • Hands-on experience with any of the following molecular methods is highly desired:
    • NGS library preparation methods
    • PCR methods such as: PCR, qPCR, RT-PCR, ddPCR
    • Nucleic acid ligations
    • Nucleic acid analysis such as: quantitation by absorbance/fluorescence, gel & capillary electrophoresis
    • Magnetic bead-based DNA/RNA purification and size selection
    • DNA hybridization arrays
    • Plasmid cloning
    • Other molecular techniques

 

Highly Desirable:

  • Experience with Next Generation Sequencing 
  • Experience with robotics and automated liquid handling systems
  • Knowledge of LIMS platforms and various computer systems
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Thrives in a fast-paced environment
