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 Senior Research Associate in the Screening Team, you will join a fast-paced, high energy and closely collaborative team that strives to deliver superior data under tight timelines. Responsible for several workflows spanning all parts of the organization, the data you generate, analyze, and communicate will put you at the forefront of the next therapeutic or technological advancement. By applying your skills in primary and immortalized cell culture, you will establish, validate, and perform genetic perturbation methods for current and emerging therapeutic targets and a broad spectrum of CRISPR technologies.
As a Screening Team Senior Associate Scientist, you will:
Conduct standard cell culture support, including maintaining and plating of primary (Hepatocytes, T-Cells and iPSCs) and immortalized cells
Develop, validate, troubleshoot, improve and/or perform genetic perturbation experiments to support in vitro CRISPR screening, leveraging high throughput liquid handling automation
Conduct experiments, independently and in collaboration with colleagues, to achieve gene editing in in vitro systems in support of project goals
Independently analyze, interpret, document, and communicate data, providing key input to stakeholders to advance future therapies and technologies
We are in search of driven and high-energy candidates with an MS or BS in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, or a related discipline with 4+ years of relevant experience, preferably in an industrial drug discovery setting. The ideal candidate has extensive knowledge of cell culture and genetic perturbation with experience leveraging high-throughput liquid handling automation. Additional role requirements include:
A team-centric work ethic, commitment to success, and a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude
Strong data analysis, interpretation, visualization, and presentation skills
Clear and timely communication and documentation of results in electronic lab notebooks
Organizational proficiency and ability to plan multiple concurrent workflows
If you are a passionate, curious, and driven team player, we encourage you to apply.
Meet your future team:
You will be joining our Screening Team; a group of motivated, dedicated, and highly collaborative scientists who are driven to change patients’ lives. The Screening Team is part of the multifunctional platform group, AEGIS (Automation, Engineering, Genomics, Informatics, Screening) where you will report directly to the Associate Director, Screening. As we build our team, we’re excited to work with people who share our commitment and energy to making a difference.
We are currently working mostly on-site to execute our experiments in a wet-lab environment. Therefore, we require a candidate to be currently local to Cambridge MA, or open to relocating. While much of the day-to-day operations require wet-lab work, our team is focused on building not just technical expertise but fostering an environment for the growth of scientists interested in a career in therapeutic biotechnology. If you join our team, you can expect to join a fast, exciting, and collaborative environment. We look forward to fostering your skills, learning from your experiences, and building a larger team together. We are just getting started.
