Chemistry & Delivery Sciences:
Associate Scientist, RNA Technologies

Why Join Intellia? 

Our mission is to develop curative genome editing treatments that can positively transform the lives of people living with severe and life-threatening diseases. 

Beyond our science, we live our four core values: One, Explore, Disrupt, Deliver and feel strongly that you can achieve more at Intellia. We have a single-minded determination to excel and succeed together. We believe in the power of curiosity and pushing boundaries. We welcome challenging thoughts and imagination to develop innovative solutions. And we know that patients are counting on us to make the promise a reality, so we must maintain high standards and get it done. 

We want all of our people to go beyond what is possible. We aren’t constrained by typical end rails, and we aren’t out to just “treat” people. We’re all in this for something more. We’re driven to cure and motivated for change. Just imagine the possibilities of what we can do together.

How You Will Achieve More With Intellia:

As a Junior Scientist, you will join our RNA Technologies team within the Chemistry and Delivery Sciences group and embrace the opportunity to transform amazing sciences and technologies into powerful cures. You will be responsible for providing support in mRNA platform development by working on mRNA discovery and implementing new and existing mRNA process and analytical methods. The ideal applicant will be able to develop and follow SOP to execute mRNA characterization and to carry out mRNA synthesis by enzymatic method as necessary.

Main responsibilities also include:

  • Execute enzymatic mRNA synthesis and characterization

  • Develop methods and perform experiments to measure mRNA and/or protein expression via RT-PCR, ELISA, and MSD

  • Conduct, troubleshoot, and modify experiments to reach desired goals

  • Work independently in collaboration with colleagues in support of project goals

  • Assist in maintaining general laboratory functionality, including lab equipment maintenance and the ordering and receiving of lab supplies

About you:

Your experience working with RNA and your understanding of the basic principles and techniques necessary to synthesize mRNA and to characterize RNA quality and function will enable you to be successful. Other qualifications and desired skills include:

  • Master’s degree in Molecular Biology or Biochemistry or related area with 2~ 4 years of relevant experience or a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology or Biochemistry or related area with 4-6 years of relevant experience.

  • mRNA and oligos development experience utilizing bioanalytical tools such as (U/HPLC, gel electrophoresis, MSD, and sequencing) is desirable

  • Experience working with NGS data analysis is a plus.

  • Organized, detail-oriented, and demonstrated independent thinker who continuously seeks innovative solutions.

  • Excellent verbal and written communication, teamwork, and strong problem-solving skills.

Meet your future team:

The RNA Technologies team is a fun, brilliant and energetic team of scientists focused on the RNA platform development to create the curative gene-editing technologies of the future. This group is responsible for driving the early-stage development of Intellia’s mRNA DS for Intellia’s lead programs. Furthermore, we are responsible for the development of enzymatic process and characterization tools to build a wide range of mRNA modalities for Intellia’s next-generation platform technologies.

You will report to the Director, RNA Technologies. He is leading to advance our RNA gene therapy platforms and participate in developing innovative therapies for patients. He loves to see people grow and develop and look forward to learning from your experiences and building the team together with you.
