We are seeking a motivated individual to join our team and expand our high-resolution single B-cell screening platform using the Berkeley Lights Beacon. Using state-of-the-art technology coupled with intelligent project and assay design, the candidate would accelerate our antibody discovery process and guide selection of ideal single B cells. Highly qualified candidates will be able to combine exemplary benchwork with the ability to analyze complex data sets and translate them into actionable, intelligible data reports.
Application of microfluidics-based selections of antigen-specific B cells using the Berkeley Lights Beacon.
Careful preparation and thorough validation of protein reagents and cell lines for single B cell antibody discovery workflows.
Execute and troubleshoot antibody-based functional assays (protein-protein interactions and cell-based), particularly on the nanoscale level.
Complex instrumentation troubleshooting and maintenance.
Effectively communicate and coordinate work within a highly matrixed workflow and collaborative environment.
Undergraduate degree in biology, chemistry, bioengineering, or a related discipline.
At least 2 years of relevant experience in a laboratory setting (strong preference to industry experience).
Proficiency in aseptic technique for mammalian cell culture.
Strong quantitative, organization, and problem-solving skills.
Ideal candidates will have experience establishing and validating antibody-based functional assays and characterization processes.
Productive and adaptable in a dynamic setting with multiple projects under specific timelines.
Keen understanding of the antibody discovery process a plus.
Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.
Detail oriented with proven ability to troubleshoot complex problems with diverse variables.
