Job Title: Scientist, Advanced Microbiomic Analytics



•             In-depth, high-throughput characterization of mixed microbial populations.

•             Develop and establish DNA/RNA based sequencing processes for quantitative characterization of mixed microbial populations.

•             Optimize assay conditions for DNA/RNA extraction and detection of phylogenetic microbial signatures to achieve commercial levels of stability, robustness, and performance.

•             Knowledge and hands on experience using the Tecan Evo Freedom automated liquid handling system and develop qPCR assays using Luminex chemisty or Tecan Plate readers

•             Identify, analyze, and implement cutting-edge technologies and molecular techniques to develop innovative, robust sequencing-based assays.

•             Oversee data reporting and trending/tracking of viable and non-viable monitoring.

•             Significant contribution to the development of validation protocols (as needed), and author SOPs for routine performance of these assays.

•             Work closely with senior management to initiate new production projects and drive implementation of processes/techniques to meet objectives.

•             Effectively communicates results of departmental work to other parts of the organization both verbally and in writing..

•             Participate in mandatory training of cGMPs as appropriate for early-stage clinical trials (phase I/II), and periodical training with various process methods through seminars or hands-on training for activities as required.
