POSITION DESCRIPTION

Jnana therapeutics is seeking a molecular and cell biology specialist to support our expanding portfolio.  A passion for science, overcoming scientific challenges and leveraging your talents and experience to enable drug discovery programs is a must.

Our ideal candidate has a track record of designing and implementing novel cell-based assays based on a range of detection technologies. The candidate must demonstrate experience overcoming challenges in cell line engineering to deliver robust and reproducible assays that enable small-molecule or genetic screens. The candidate is well-versed in vector selection, construct design/engineering, and a range of gene delivery technologies (transfection, transduction, electroporation).

Experience with medium- to high-throughput screening is a plus. Candidate will have access to medium- throughput flow cytometry (BD Celesta), automated fluorescence microscopy (Nikon Ti2), and the opportunity to implement their assays in-house in collaboration with our high-throughput screening group.

Level and responsibilities will be scaled to experience. We seek the best candidate and will create an environment that allows them to fully realize their potential.
