(Sr.) Scientist, Enzyme Engineering OPX Biotechnologies
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED The person in this position will design experimental approaches to developing improved enzymes, carry out experiments, make detailed observations, analyze data and interpret results, and prepare reports, presentations, and sections of patents. S/he will contribute to expanding the capabilities of the Enzyme Engineering team by using novel techniques and methods to generate improved enzymes as part of pathway and strain development, and will develop enzymatic assays to characterize and validate improved enzymes. This position will provide technical leadership in the laboratory; assist upper management in anticipating risks to research plans; and identify contingencies to mitigate those risks.
PhD degree in Biochemistry or a related field with a minimum of 3 yrs. of relevant industrial experience preferred. Other combinations of education and experience will be considered, and will determine the final level and title of the position. Demonstrated success in enzyme improvement using several approaches, including structure-based methods, is essential. Experience with advanced molecular biology techniques, such as recombination-based gene construction, and with protein purification is highly desired. Understanding of metabolic pathway construction and the demonstrated ability to use structure visualization software are required. Excellent organization and communication skills (both written and oral) absolutely required.
