Recombia Biosciences is an early-stage synthetic biology startup that is leveraging its proprietary genome engineering technologies to optimize yeast to produce a number of different sustainable products. Our technologies enable the introduction of rationally-designed genetic modifications with unprecedented precision, efficiency, and throughput.
We are seeking a full-time Research Scientist to join our team. This is an exciting opportunity to be a key member early-stage biotech startup in the San Francisco Bay Area. Candidates must have experience working with yeast (S. cerevisiae) or other microorganisms. Candidate will be responsible to develop high-throughput assays to select for improved strains. Ideal candidates will have a background in chemical detection, metabolic engineering, industrial fermentation, genome editing and some programming skills.
Successful candidates will design and implement robust assays to characterize, at high-throughput, genetically-modified strains of industrial yeast for production of different chemicals by fermentation. As part of the Recombia team, you will be expected to interact frequently with leadership and other lab/bench scientists, but also work independently to implement essential assays for strains emerging from Recombia’s bioengineering pipeline. Salary and equity for this position will be commensurate with experience.
Well qualified candidates will have:
Ph.D. or masters with 5+ years experience.
Background in yeast biology and standard molecular biology techniques
Experience working in industry with metabolic engineering and synthetic biology.
Experience applying or developing high-throughput assays or screens.
Programming and data analysis skills (Python, R, etc)
Strong communication skills and experience working with a team
The ability to work independently
Some additional (non-essential) qualifications:
Industry experience (especially experience working at a startup in synthetic biology, strain engineering, or industrial fermentation)
Salary: to be commensurate with experience
