Scientist, Yeast Engineering Alder Biopharmaceuticals
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED We have a position available for a broadly-trained and creative scientist/engineer to lead further development of our Mab Xpress system for expression of antibodies in Pichia pastoris. Alder pioneered the use of Pichia for antibody production, and this position is an opportunity to do ground-breaking work with this fast-growing microbe. The successful candidate will collaborate with other team members in the yeast engineering group and be hands-on in generating and testing hypotheses for increasing the quantity and quality of antibody produced. Candidates should have the training/experience to take a cross-disciplinary and quantitative approach to engineering yeast for enhanced antibody secretion. We seek a candidate who will take a leadership role in establishing an innovative, multi-pronged approach to identifying and alleviating bottlenecks in antibody production, utilizing concepts and data from fields such as gene expression, cell biology, and yeast metabolism.
Ph.D. in Microbiology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Biochemical Engineering or related disciplines with 2+ years of relevant industrial experience in an E. coli or yeast system including strain development and selection, genetic manipulations as well as expression vector design. Extensive knowledge of cellular physiology is highly preferred. Experience with therapeutic protein expression and the regulatory activities associated with preparing a program for regulatory filings is a plus. The ability to work independently as well as part of a team is critical. Excellent verbal and written communications skills are a must.
