Research Assistant II – Animal Care

We are seeking a Research Assistant position in the Bioinspired Therapeutics and Diagnostics platform. The candidate will be part of a multidisciplinary team working on developing a number of state-of-the-art processes to improve the hemocompatiblity of medical device materials and to separate pathogens from infected blood. The candidate will be responsible for performing experiments with blood to determine hemocompatibility of the materials. In vivo studies will involve evaluating the biocompatibility and efficacy of materials in large animal models e.g. swine. Previous experience working with swine is preferred. In addition, the candidate will perform surface modification of medical devices and protein conjugation in order to characterize biocompatibility of devices. Additional responsibilities include immunoassays (ELISAs), microscopy, histology, flow cytometry, and molecular biology as well as assay development. The position will require the candidate to work in a multidisciplinary team of biologists, chemists and engineers, interact in a collegial and fluid manner with other scientists and staff at the Wyss Institute, present his/her work at weekly meetings and write appropriate scientific articles and patent applications.
