About the Role
We are looking for a Scientist to join our Applications Team. You will work closely with talented cell biologists, biochemists, computational biologists and software engineers to generate data using our spatial and single cell genomic assays. Our products have allowed researchers to study biology at unprecedented resolution and scale yielding insights in diverse fields such as cancer biology, immunology, neuroscience, developmental and basic biology.
Using existing 10x products, you will apply your understanding of biology to design and execute experiments that allow us to better understand the biological questions that can be answered using 10x tools. You will work closely with our marketing team to define the most relevant and impactful questions to address, and then work with both our internal R&D group or with external partners to solve these problems experimentally. You will then communicate the results in presentations and reports.
You have a strong background in applied biological science, preferentially in the field of immuno-oncology. You have a deep understanding of biology at the cellular and molecular level and are able to discuss how this relates to health and disease. You are a good wet-lab scientist who can take an idea and quickly design an experiment that allows you to gain a better understanding of the biology of a sample. You have expertise working with single cell or spatial genomic assays, and have applied in situ technologies to your research. You are able to communicate your ideas and work effectively with an interdisciplinary team and incorporate their feedback into your experimental design. You are a strategic thinker, highly motivated, proactive and flexible in changing direction and methods. You thrive in a fast paced environment, excel at managing multiple priorities, communicate clearly and get the job done.
