Scientist, Consumables

Intabio is a venture-funded technology company committed to revolutionizing the way biopharmaceutical drugs are developed and produced. We have assembled a stellar team of innovators known for creating groundbreaking technologies for molecular characterization and drug discovery. Our first product, the Blaze™ system, provides a novel approach to high-throughput detection and identification of subtle protein modifications - modifications that can undermine the stability and efficacy of life-saving drugs such as monoclonal antibodies. Our early technology partners include many of the world's most successful biopharmaceutical companies.

Intabio is currently seeking a talented and experienced scientist to join a team developing a microfluidic consumable for cIEF-MS. This position provides an exciting opportunity to work with outstanding scientists and engineers in a highly multidisciplinary environment. The successful candidate will have strong hands-on skills in surface modifications and characterization, assay development, and methods for studying interactions between biomolecules and surfaces. Experience with microfluidic devices and strong data analysis skills are also required.

Key Responsibilities include (but not limited to):

  • Design and characterization of microfluidic devices
  • Surface modifications of microfluidic devices
  • Assay development for characterization of interactions between proteins and microfluidic devices
  • Cross-functional efforts towards optimizing system performance
  • Design and execution of experiments using prototype instruments, including data analysis and interpretation
  • Development of processes for consumable manufacturing, and transfer to Operations


Qualifications:

  • D. in chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related field, with 5+ years of industrial experience in biotechnology
  • Demonstrated success in design and surface functionalization of microfluidic consumables
  • High level of personal and professional integrity and trustworthiness with strong work ethic and the ability to work independently with minimal direction
  • Excellent communications and presentation skills
  • Highly motivated and able to work well in a fast-paced, project-driven, cross-functional team environment
