Scientist I/II, IVT Assay Development

Who Are We?

We are on a mission to help patients regain independence through the thoughtful design of safe and reversible therapeutics. You may be, accurately, wondering “how do you do this”? Well, our team is developing a proprietary technology platform to target various regenerative pathways critical for the establishment of complex diseases.

We are looking for team members to join ASAP.

Our small but rapidly growing team currently operates out of South San Francisco. We are easily accessible from SF, the Peninsula, and the East Bay (for those interested in the occasional ferry rides).

Responsibilities

  • Design and execute in vitro validation and cell culture studies for an early-stage research program on neuromuscular disease.

  • Develop and execute myogenesis and efficacy in vitro assays

  • Generate and test gRNA libraries for CRISPR screening

  • Optimize product candidate through the discovery process towards development candidate nomination

  • Effectively communicate and collaborate with team members to facilitate execution on projects within established timelines.

  • Responsible for data analysis and interpretation, troubleshooting, and follow up experiment

Qualifications

  • PhD in molecular biology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, stem cell or related fields, with 2+ years of relevant research experience in industry or academia

  • PhD in Biology, Immunology, or equivalent.

  • Working knowledge of neuromuscular diseases, and muscle-specific in vitro disease models.

  • Strong molecular biology skills (DNA and RNA handling, Immunostaining, cloning etc)

  • Experience with CRISPR related technologies is preferred

Epic Bio is an early-stage biotechnology company developing a novel technology platform that can provide safe and persistent control of targeted gene regulation. Our proprietary platform represents an entirely new class of therapeutics that can be leveraged to treat severe disease across numerous therapeutic areas, including complex diseases impacted by multiple genes.
