  • Independently craft, perform, complete and troubleshoot immune-assays (e.g., ELISA) and DNA/RNA assays (qPCR/ddPCR) based on protocols provided by literature, supervisor and other scientists
  • Develop and optimize sophisticated genomic assays and immunoassays (i.e. PK, biodistribution, PD and ADA)
  • Routinely perform multiple assays within the same day and works on multiple projects simultaneously
  • Identify and independently evaluate new technologies for the development of assays using new formats or techniques.
  • Write assay validation protocols with few or no subsequent edits for review by supervisor and/or Study Director
  • Takes the lead/supervisory role in planning of validation experiments and securing resources and reagents for validation
  • May independently train on validated bioanalytical methods and perform sample analysis, if needed

This role requires a Doctorate Degree (Ph.D.) in biology or a related field and a minimum of 2-3+ years of relevant post-doctoral experience. Experience in AAV-based gene therapies with a focus on development of novel bioanalytical assay platforms to support nonclinical and clinical and knowledge of LNP and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies, as well as other viral vector GT platforms is highly desirable. Hands-on knowledge in PCR (quantitative PCR and digital droplet PCR) and a proven understanding of additional methodologies to assess GT products such as deep sequencing approaches, high-resolution mass spectrometry and RNA hybridization assays a plus. Strong understanding of regulatory landscape for assays supporting bioanalytical assessments for viral-based gene delivery support Immunology/immunogenicity expertise for GT components (both highly developed and adaptive) a plus. Experience in a GXP environment preferred.
