Research Assistants and Scientist
Molecular Lab | San Carlos, CA | Full Time and Temporary | Opened about 1 month ago
Scientists, we need your help for a 1-month project to scale national COVID testing.
This is an opportunity to use your scientific skills to help fight the pandemic.
We are hiring 20 scientists and research associates to start immediately. Scientists from academia, industry and the government are taking leaves of absence to support this effort. Most will return to their day jobs in a month after proudly adding an FDA submission to their resumes.
Over the next month we will develop, optimize, and validate molecular diagnostic assays. We need your help if you have recent laboratory experience setting up and running PCR or isothermal amplification assays. We specifically need scientists with relevant graduate/postdoc or industry experience, and research associates highly skilled at PCR and isothermal amplification.
These are paid, full-time positions. Many people who joined our project are currently employed, but we’ve been able to work out arrangements with their employers. If you want to help, but don’t know how to manage your current roles, reach out and we’ll find a way to make it work. Unprecedented challenges require an unprecedented scientific response.
