Job Description
Science is an early stage company developing technologies for a range of serious unmet medical needs. We are unafraid to take difficult technical risks, secure in the knowledge that with a clear understanding of what we are doing and with support from powerful modern tools, more progress is possible than might be immediately obvious. Regardless of role or team, the two most important factors we look for in a candidate are evidence of exceptional ability and the addition of positive energy to the group. As a small, very early stage team in a largely unstructured environment, the ability to independently orient yourself to the problems that need to be solved and then follow through is essential.

Science is looking for research associates enthusiastic about creating a new research program to develop therapeutics on the interface of cell biology and medical devices. Candidates can look forward to helping set up and scale a focused research program in collaboration with a world-class team of scientists and engineers with diverse technical backgrounds. As a very early-stage company, we are looking for candidates who want to have a significant impact on the company's progress with the opportunity for growth. Ideal candidates will have extensive laboratory experience, expertise in cell culture, histology, and microscopy, are detail-oriented, reliable, and natural self-starters motivated to exceed expectations.

Role responsibilities:
  • Perform a variety of cell-culture based tasks and assays including working with cell lines, organoids, and primary cells
  • Perform and analyze histology experiments including but not limited to classic histological stains, immunofluorescence, and fluorescence in situ hybridization assays

Key qualifications:
  • At least 1-2 years hands on laboratory experience in a biology laboratory environment
  • Hands-on experience in cell culture and expertise in basic cell culture operations including sterile technique, passaging, feeding, cryopreservation, etc
  • Hands-on experience with histology and/or microscopy techniques
  • Extreme attention to detail, takes pride in working with care and precision
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Self starter, motivated to exceed expectations
  • Software is your friend, not your nemesis

Preferred qualifications:
  • Experience with mouse primary neuronal culture
  • Experience working with organoids
  • Experience with microscopy
  • Demonstrated ability to perform quantitative analysis
