Job Snapshot

Job Description

  • As an Associate Scientist in the Department of Antibody Discovery and Protein Engineering, you’ll be focused on the design, construction and characterization of transposon-based DNA vectors for in vivo gene delivery.

  • You will work closely with another team focused on the development of nanoparticle-based carriers used to target these DNA vectors to cell types of interest.

  • Together with this group, you will build vectors, formulate them as nanoparticles, and support studies to test the gene delivery capability of these nanoparticles in vitro and in vivo.

  • Because this process spans design of the DNA vector through in vitro/in vivo testing, strong experience in molecular biology and DNA vector design as well as mammalian cell culture and manipulation is a must.

  • While you will report to a more senior scientist that will shape the overall goals of your project, considerable deference will be given with regard to technical design of experiments as well as planning and prioritization of activities.

  • You will also be expected to autonomously analyze the experimental data you generate and propose next actions.

  • Thus, the successful applicant will be highly self-motivated, independent, organized, and driven by a strong scientific curiosity. 



This position offers a strong benefits package including health and life insurance.  There is also a generous PTO package.  Work life Balance is appreciated and respected!

Job Requirements

  • Molecular biology skills as required for routine cloning and experience with DNA vector design and construction are a must.

  • Experience with mammalian cell culture and genetic manipulation methods (e.g. transfection, viral transduction etc.) is also required.
