Some Openings at Industry
Integral Molecular is a platform-based biotechnology company, originally spun out of the University of Pennsylvania. Integral Molecular provides innovative solutions for scientific research and drug discovery applications involving integral membrane proteins, such as GPCRs and ion channels. Integral Molecular has full-time positions open immediately for qualified Ph.D.-level scientists. In addition to helping commercialize Integral's products, you will be involved in projects that are expected to result in a number of research publications.
Interested applicants should email their resume in Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org with the specific 'Job ID#' in the Subject line.
Job #100115, Cell Biologist: This Ph.D.-level position involves signal transduction research downstream of cell surface receptor activation in cells. The candidate will have a background in signal transduction and extensive experience working with cells and cellular functions, preferably involving GPCRs. Experience with DNA transfection, immunofluorescence, and fluorescence-based cellular assays is desired. Knowledge of protein structure-function analysis and protein structure visualization is a plus. The candidate should have excellent organization skills and work well in a team setting. A Ph.D. with 0-2 years experience or post-doc experience is required.
Job #100116, Biochemist: This Ph.D.-level position involves assay development assessing the function of enzymatic proteins interacting with their partner molecules. The candidate will have experience with protein enzymology or signal transduction and will have relevant experience in protein expression, protein folding, and the assessment of protein activity. Experience with GPCRs, ion channels, or membrane biochemistry is a plus. The candidate should be highly inquisitive, have excellent attention to detail, and demonstrated ability to address challenging scientific questions. A Ph.D. with 0-2 years experience or post-doc experience is required.
Job #091010, Molecular Biology Scientist: This position will involve working at a biotechnology company with a dedicated group of scientists on the development and commercialization of biomedical technology-based products. Projects will involve conducting and coordinating DNA cloning projects that are central to all of the work in the company. Applicants must be proficient in state of the art technologies employed for recombinant DNA manipulation with the goal of optimizing expression in eukaryotic cells. You will also be responsible for organizing stocks of DNA, bacteria, and electronic maps. Familiarity with skills in generating chimeric recombinant sequences, site-directed mutagenesis, random mutagenesis, codon optimization, and/or gene synthesis is desired. Specific experience with manipulation of unstable sequences or toxic proteins (e.g. viral genomes) is also desired. Familiarity with common molecular biology software applications is essential. Candidates should have a Ph.D. and at least 4 years of relevant experience. Candidates with M.S. or B.A./B.S. degrees and extensive experience may also be considered. Experience and training in the fields of Molecular Biology, Molecular Virology, Genetic Engineering, and Gene Therapy may be relevant for this position.
