We are seeking a highly-motivated scientist who thrives in a fast-paced and creative environment. Together, we’ll build multiplexed protein quantitation technologies that massively increase the throughput of testing protein therapeutic designs and disrupt the current paradigm of drug development. The ideal candidate will have deep technical expertise in protein engineering technologies and a track record of learning, deploying, and inventing new methods. You will work directly with the CSO to define, execute, and iterate on engineering projects and help build out an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers.
Duties and Responsibilities
Develop novel protein engineering platform technologies, including multiplexed protein measurement assays
Design and clone DNA libraries of synthetic proteins at megascale efficiency
Leverage NGS technologies in ways that no one has done before
Adapt existing protein engineering methods to validate and advance the platform
Build out the lab and workflows in a way that optimizes productivity and efficiency
PhD or equivalent experience in biology, biological engineering or a related field
5+ years hands-on molecular biology wet lab experience
Experience in advanced cloning techniques (Type IIS, Gateway, Gibson, etc.)
Collaborative, curious, flexible, and strong communication skills
Experience with protein assays, e.g. production, purification, QC, Chromatography (Affinity, Size, Ionic etc) and detection (PAGE/ELISA/Blots), etc.
Experience with phage/yeast/mammalian display or similar
Experience with next-generation DNA sequencing library preparation
Experience with Flow/FACS-based quantitative assays
We value different experiences and different ways of thinking and believe the most talented teams are built by bringing together people of diverse cultures, genders, and backgrounds.
