Description

Asimov engineers living systems to create transformative biotechnologies with outsized global impact.

Position: We are seeking a full-time Mammalian Synthetic Biologist to engineer CHO and human cells with unconventional functions. You will use the latest molecular biology, quantitative cell measurement, and -omics analysis techniques. The ideal candidate is obsessed with the question of how to best engineer complex biological systems. This is a unique opportunity to work at a nimble, forward-thinking synthetic biology startup and help build the foundation for engineering biology.

As part of the Synthetic Biology Team, you will:

  • Design, build, and test innovative genetic platforms and programs in mammalian cells
  • Create experimental workflows and collect quantitative measurements for engineered cells including flow cytometry and RNA-seq
  • Analyze and distill insight from complex molecular data streams
  • Collaborate frequently with the Software Team to incorporate biological design principles and experimental data into the software pipeline 
  • Communicate methods and results with other scientists, industry executives, and academic researchers
  • Organize and document experiments, genetic designs, and data
  • Work effectively as part of a multifunctional team in support of a synthetic biology design platform
