Natural proteins evolved over millions of years to solve the most complex challenges on Earth. However, we face new and pressing challenges today.
The goal of the Institute for Protein Design is to develop and apply methods for designing a whole new world of synthetic proteins to address these challenges.
To achieve this, we are marshalling deep institutional strengths in our faculty, scientific staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, our partners from collaborating institutions, innovator networks and from the computer and biotechnology industries — bringing extraordinary expertise to bear on a singular focus to advance the potential of protein design.
The UW Institute for Protein Design is seeking to hire a Research Scientist 1 whose duties will be to provide experimental support for research projects as part of the IPD Protein Production Facility, Mammalian Core. The Research Scientist/Engineer will be part of a small team focused on cell based assays.
In this role, ~60% of the effort will be dedicated to the culture and maintenance of a variety of mammalian cell lines.
Another ~10% of effort will be dedicated to support the production of proteins secreted from mammalian cell culture.
The remaining ~30% of effort will be dedicated to signaling and other cell-based assays.
- Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, or related field.
- +1 years work experience with tissue culture.
