Job Description

Who We Are

This company is a world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. We will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

SUMMARYThe Gene Therapy Research group in San Rafael, CA, is looking for a highly motivated Research Associate to join our Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) Purification and Analytics team. In this role, you will purify standard and novel AAVs using established protocols as well as characterize purified material using state-of-the-art analytical tools under our supervision. In addition, a successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in exploratory and pipeline projects and learn about research and manufacturing side of gene therapy drug development.

  • Perform standard AAV purifications and purified material characterization following established protocols.
  • Maintain an accurate electronic laboratory notebook to record daily activities and experimental results.
  • Prepare or update protocols and other documents, as needed.
  • Effectively communicate experimental findings and collaborate with other team members.
  • Perform assigned tasks in a timely manner to meet project deadlines.
  • Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences with 0-2 years of relevant experience.
  • Experience working in a laboratory setting is highly desirable, but not essential.
  • Virus and/or protein purification experience using FPLC and/or HPLC chromatography is a plus.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Openness and willingness to learn new skills and/or laboratory techniques is a must.
