Senior Scientist: Bench Scale Process Development
Confirmed live in the last 24 hours
San Francisco, CA, USA
Experience Level
  • 1+ years of management experience in a diverse and team-based environment
  • Prior process development/optimization experience with bench scale bioreactors
  • Willingness to challenge the status quo; unafraid to break things in order to build something better
  • Extensive experience in bioprocess engineering, biochemical engineering, mechanical engineering, cell biology or biochemistry
  • Proven track record of conceptualizing new projects and driving those projects to completion
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • How to apply your experience to the production of next-generation seafood
  • What it is like to work in a super talented startup group, where we challenge/inspire each other to do better for the collective good of the company
  • How we developed dozens of marine cell lines and adapted some of them to suspension culture, and invite you to make suggestions on how we could do better for new lines/species
  • Our current suspension culture process (for you to analyze, take apart, and rebuild)
  • Within 1 month you will have formed some questions regarding Wildtype's current suspension culture process and designed preliminary experiments to address those questions
  • Within 3 months You will have set your professional development goals for the next 2 years. You will have developed your own initial hypotheses based on prior run data and started testing those hypotheses for the purpose of increasing cell culture efficiency and yield. You will have been hitting the floor and running your experiments with other crewmates
  • Within 6 months you will have gathered enough data to validate/invalidate your initial hypotheses. You will have presented your findings to the entire R&D branch and made your recommendations to the next steps of process development. You will also have been exposed to our new cell line establishment/development efforts and provided your inputs from the process development perspective (eg., clone selection, culture format, feed strategy). You will have started investing some time into building/managing your own group, and/or training others on process development
  • Within 12 months you will have established new bench scale processes for suspension culture of our workhorse cell lines to improve yield. You will also have developed culturing processes for multiple novel cell lines from new species
  • Design experiments to systematically improve culture efficiency and yield in bioreactors
  • Design, implement, and optimize upstream cell culture processes for novel marine species
  • Lead tech transfer to our scale up team
  • Lead a group of process development associates
