Scientist - Bioengineering

We are currently seeking a Ph.D. (or equivalent) level laboratory scientist in the areas of bioengineering/bioanalytics for a position. Experience in immunology is a strong plus.
Laboratory Scientist: Bioengineering
You will have a key role in an exciting scientific and engineering effort focused on identifying rare tumor-reactive T cell populations from patient tissues and blood, using microchip-based methods and biomolecular libraries, both of which are designed for the precise manipulations of small numbers of T cells. Your initial responsibilities will be associated with translating scientific tools, methods, and protocols from an academic lab into PACT, followed by engineering those tools, methods, and protocols into a robust processes that form a critical component of a cancer immunotherapy. The existing scientific advances permit the discovery of neoantigen-specific T cells, and the matching of that specificity with the T cell receptor gene. You will be responsible for overseeing one or more research associates as your team designs robust analytical protocols that can be routinely applied towards the analysis of patient materials and, ultimately, towards the design of patient treatments. You will coordinate your efforts within a larger cross-disciplinary team of clinicians, immunologists, biologists, engineers, and bio-informaticians.
Duties include:
•Developing robust laboratory protocols for the manufacture and use of microchip platforms that are used for identifying the antigen-specificity of CD8+ T cells, and pairing that antigen specificity with the full T cell receptor gene sequence.
•Working within a team of researchers, engineers, and physicians to develop a set of protocols for translating the analysis of the T cells into a clinical therapy.
•Oversight of one or more technical level research associates, including oversight of the production of peptide libraries, expression of certain proteins, preparation and purification of labeled proteins, preparation of microfluidic chips.Position requirement: Ph.D. in Bioengineering or a related field, or equivalent postdoctoral training with a minimum of 2 years of post-graduate experience in a closely related field.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
