Requirements
  • You value teamwork and are motivated to contribute to the team's goals. Working as part of a highly integrated research team is exciting to you
  • You're a creative problem solver and get excited about the opportunity to drive the creation of industry-disruptive technology
  • You have experience designing plasmids and culturing cells including E. coli, yeast, or mammalian cells
  • Being detail-oriented isn't just a sound bite for you, it's part of your DNA. Keeping track of a bunch of moving parts is easy for you because you're highly organized. It's not your first time following a standardized workflow or pipeline
  • You have a bachelor's or master's degree in Biological Engineering, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering or a related field, or equivalent laboratory experience
  • Don't let this stop you from applying, but it's a plus if you are familiar with flow cytometry, lentivirus or AAV, CHO-based biologics production, synthetic biology, or computation analysis and programming
Responsibilities
  • You'll work with a scientist to accelerate existing experimental pipelines with techniques ranging from cloning, transfection, and cell line characterization, to ddPCR and next generation sequencing
  • This role involves a lot of cross-team collaboration. You'll work with Asimov's Synthetic Biology, DNA and Strain Construction, and Cell Line Development teams
  • You'll independently create, characterize, and onboard new genetic parts for applications including gene induction and control, gene editing, and viral packaging
  • You'll perform mammalian cell line development including stable cell line generation, single cell cloning, clone characterization, and cell banking using state-of-the-art equipment
  • We have a hybrid team structure with our Synthetic Biology team working from our (new!) lab and office in Boston's Fenway neighborhood
