Scientist, Analytical Development
Seres Therapeutics is well-positioned to become the first company to bring an approved?microbiome drug to patients through our proprietary discovery and design platform. We identify?key alterations in the microbiome that are associated with specific diseases and are designing live bacterial ecologies to act as therapeutics in areas as diverse as infectious and inflammatory disease, immune regulation, and immuno-oncology.
The Scientist, Analytical Development will work closely with our Analytical Development, Quality Control, and Research & Development teams in the development of microbial and molecular assays to ensure safe and effective bacterial therapeutics for the patients who need them. This is a fantastic opportunity for a creative scientist who can apply their expertise to the unique challenges faced when characterizing and releasing therapeutics comprised of communities of bacteria.
Whats in it for you?
This is an opportunity to have a significant impact on the development of a novel class of therapeutics for various disease areas while learning about the exciting science of the microbiome and its impact on human health and disease.
How do you know if youre the right fit?
This is an incredible opportunity?for someone who?will get?excited about?developing assays that are robust and capable of supporting key decisions to move our programs forward. If you are flexible and driven, have worked in a fast-paced organization, and enjoy the challenge of forging a path forward in a new field, you would find this novel opportunity very engaging.
In order to develop the sorts of assays Seres needs, you should be a PhD-level scientist, or equivalent, with significant assay development experience in the area of molecular biology and/or microbiology. You should have an excellent attitude with an infectious excitement around learning and teaching your craft.
Experience with assay qualification or validation is a plus. Other desirable skills include sequencing, qPCR/dPCR, probe-based hybridization assays, LC-MS, IC, and automated liquid handlers.
