Transcriptic is looking for an experienced Lab Automation Scientist to join our Applications team. In this position you will interact with clients both pre and post-sales to onboard their assays onto our automated workcells. This entails translating customers’ “paper protocols” into a python-based software script for onboarding and execution on our robotic platform, as well as optimizing assays for automation and pre-defined biological success parameters. Other responsibilities of the role include, but are not limited to: debugging biology, project management, contributing to infrastructure and internal tooling development, and coordinating assay transfer within the organization. The ideal candidate has industry experience in biological assay development and transfer as well as onboarding and translating discovery bioassays (biomarker characterization, high-throughput screening, ELISA, MSD, IC50, qPCR etc) from manual benchtop execution to full automation. Proficiency in Python or another scripting language is required.
Transcriptic was founded in 2012 to create a better way to get lab work done. Tired of spending endless hours at the bench pretending to be slow, error-prone robots, we set out to build a modern solution to the day-to-day process of wet lab biology. Drawing on deep computer science and electrical engineering backgrounds in addition to life science, Transcriptic was born: a meticulously optimized, ...technology-enabled remote lab. Using state-of-the-art automation and control technology, and an emphasis on user experience and usability, we're working on building a stark contrast to the long, complicated sales process, high prices, and slow turnarounds of traditional CROs.
