Programmable DNA, the software of Life, is finally here! Twist Bioscience is developing a disruptive Synthetic DNA technology that will change the world, enabling widespread health and sustainability. Synthetic biologists will use our products to engineer how organisms produce cures to diseases, make everyday chemicals by using the atmosphere as the carbon source, enable plants to make their own fertilizers, and to create in-vivo diagnostics that alert us when we are sick, and many more applications.
We are seeking an outstanding, innovative, and creative Research associate to join our antibody discovery effort. This research associate will play multiple roles within the Biopharma group and will work within a team responsible for antibody discovery utilizing a number of in vitro display technologies, e.g. phage display, ribosome display, and yeast display.
What You’ll Be Doing
- Perform phage display library panning to both soluble protein and cell membrane targets
- Help with library construction using various molecular cloning skills like PCR, restriction digestion, ligation, DNA gel purification, and library bacteria transformation
- Run DNA sequencing by Illumina NGS and prep samples for Sanger sequencing, summarize sequencing results and be able to design necessary sequencing primers
- Pick colonies and conduct 96 and 384 well format ELISA assays
- Record the experimental findings and present to supervisor and group meeting
- Perform high throughput primary binding assays with help of automation
- Work collaboratively under aggressive timelines
What You’ll Bring to the Team
- Your educational background includes a B.S in molecular biology, protein engineering, biological chemistry, or related discipline with minimum 1-year related work experience
- Knowledge and experiences in molecular biology, or antibody engineering methods and applications
- You are excited to learn new techniques and can work collaboratively with others
- You thrive in a dynamic, quickly changing environment where we work cross functions as a team
- BS with minimum 1-year experience in molecular biology or protein engineering field
- Solid skills in molecular biology or antibody engineering field
- Experience with phage, ribosome or yeast display is a plus, but not required
- Ability to multitask and thrive in a fast-paced and challenging environment
- Excellent oral/written communication and interpersonal skills
- Must be able to work as an individual contributor and as a team
About Twist Bioscience
Twist Bioscience synthesizes genes from scratch, known as “writing” DNA. Just as children learn to both read and write, the next phase of development for the genomics revolution is the ability to write DNA.
At Twist Bioscience, we work in service of people who are changing the world for the better. In fields such as health care, agriculture, industrial chemicals and data storage, our unique silicon-based DNA Synthesis Platform provides precision at a scale that is otherwise unavailable to our customers.
