We are looking for an exceptional scientist to drive new
research and product development efforts at our Stockholm R&D facility,
with an emphasis on spatial transcriptomics. The ideal candidate will have a
proven track-record of developing creative and novel molecular biology
protocols for solving complex biological problems, as well as a broad
understanding of next generation sequencing and its applications. He/she should
be driven by making great products and enjoy working in a truly
multi-disciplinary environment. This position will part of our Molecular
Biology department and interact closely with colleagues across R&D
departments in both Stockholm and Pleasanton, CA. Job level and title will be
commensurate with experience.
- Conceive and develop
novel molecular biology assay schemes for use of 10x Genomics technology
platforms, with emphasis on spatial transcriptomics.
- Plan and perform
systematic workflow and reagent optimization by modeling, identification of
limiting steps and use of formal design of experiment (DOE) approaches.
- Contribute molecular
biology expertise and leadership to cross-disciplinary product development
- Work closely with computational
biologists to interpret data generated by novel and optimized assay schemes.
- Work closely with process
development staff to develop quality control and manufacturing strategies for
novel or optimized reagents.
Skills and Background
- PhD in molecular biology,
biochemistry, or a similar field with a minimum of 3 years post-graduate
experience in academia and/or industry.
- Proven ability to design
novel molecular biology assay schemes, as evidenced by peer-reviewed
publications, published patents or launched products.
- Strong organizational
