How you will Achieve More with Intellia:
Intellia is seeking a highly skilled and motivated Oligonucleotide Analytics
Senior Associate Scientist to join the Early Development and Translational Medicine (eDev) team. You will help transform genome editing technologies into therapeutics. In this role, you will develop, optimize, qualify, and execute bioanalytical methods quantifying many types of oligonucleotides including mRNA, single guide RNA, vector genomes, and genomic insertions. You will support early development, preclinical, and clinical programs.
You will work in a collaborative environment and will be responsible for pharmacokinetic and biodistribution analyses supporting in vivo and ex vivo gene editing therapeutic development.
Additional role responsibilities include:
Designing, implementing, and troubleshooting PCR-based experiments, both independently and in collaboration with internal and external colleagues
Data analysis, interpretation, and review
Providing technical support for clinical bioanalysis planning and assay transfers
Drafting SOPs and technical reports
Participating in laboratory operations including coordination of sample testing, instrument maintenance, and reagent inventory
You are an enthusiastic and collaborative scientist. To be successful in this role, you'll need to leverage your strong expertise and experience in molecular biology, genetic engineering, quantitative biology, and analytical sciences. In addition, your in-depth knowledge and hands-on technical skills in qPCR, qRT-PCR, and ddPCR to design novel methods will be critical.
A master’s degree with 5+ years of industry experience or a bachelor’s degree with 8+ years of industry experience is required for this position.
Meet your future team:
As a member of the eDEV team, you can expect to enjoy a fast-paced, exciting, and team-based environment. We look forward to developing your skills and learning from your experiences.
This position is laboratory-based which requires you to be in our Cambridge, MA facilities daily. While much of the day-to-day operations require wet-lab work, our team is also focused on building not just technical expertise, but fostering an environment that supports the growth of our scientists.
