  • Research Assistant III – Immune Organs-on-Chip
    Research and Technology Development

    We are looking for a research assistant to join the Intestine and Immune Organs on Chip team in Dr. Don Ingber’s laboratory. We are using immune organs-on-chip to study vaccines, solid tumors, and Lyme Disease. We are using Intestine Organ on Chip to study and model the intestinal tract and microbiome and its influences on diseases, such as malnutrition-associated with environmental enteric dysfunction (EED), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and radiation-induced injury, as well as therapeutic responses. With our work, we hope to understand what makes a vaccine effective, create an implantable therapy for pancreatic cancer, as well as incubate a startup that will design novel Lyme Disease therapeutics. Furthermore, the organ-chip model of intestinal injuries will help us to understand the molecular, genetic and nutritional bases of the disease and the testing of candidate therapeutics for it.

    Reporting to the Principal Scientist leading the team, you will support these studies with the potential to become the go-to person for specific aspects of these research projects. You will learn cutting-edge human immunology and organ-on-chip techniques and may also be exposed to gene editing technology. The ideal candidate is comfortable learning and doing different types of tasks within the same week, has had diverse research experiences, and works well within a team. [65468BR]

  • Research Assistant III – RNA Technologies
    Research and Technology Development

    We are looking for a Research Assistant III to join our Diagnostics Accelerator initiative. You will work with a multidisciplinary team on developing RNA-based technologies for investigating pathological states from human biofluids. You will lead development of novel Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) experimental and computational methods that will be used across different diseases. Although you will work within a team and receive significant experimental and computational training, you will also have significant opportunities for scientific independence, and previous RAs working with us have contributed to multiple publications and presented their work at international conferences.

  • Research Assistant IV – Immunology and Organs-on-Chip
    Research and Technology Development

    We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented individual with previous experience in immunology to join the Bioinspired Therapeutics & Diagnostics platform as a senior and independent Research Assistant. You will significantly contribute to research programs on infectious disease vaccines, post-infection chronic illness and cancer immunology funded by the Gates Foundation, BARDA, ARPA-H and Northpond Ventures. You will work with primary immune cells derived from human blood, tonsils or other tissues, and be responsible for independently planning and executing scientific research involving microfluidic Organ on Chip primary cell culture as well as attenuated laboratory poliovirus strains or other biosafety level 2 pathogens. You will also develop and validate various in-vitro cell based assays. You will be expected to work independently with minimal guidance from academic staff to design experiments, learn new skills, troubleshoot, and to contribute intellectually to the project. [65462BR]
