Stem Cell Biologist

Xcell Biosciences is a San Francisco-based life science start-up company that has developed a proprietary primary cell culture platform for use in research, drug development, and precision and regenerative medicine applications. The technology delivers simple, standardized culture of primary cell types from a variety of patient tissues and blood, including expansion of tumor cells and immune cells. This novel platform enables direct disease insights ex vivo, with use in drug development applications ranging from novel cancer biomarker discovery to cell-based immunotherapy lead optimization. The company is focused on tools to improve primary cell expansion, transfection and control of cell state, and is generating revenue from the Avatar system launched in 2017. As a member of our team, the candidate will be responsible to support the development and advancement of programs that leverage proprietary technology to enhance induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) generation, their maintenance, and their differentiation into functionally mature cells (e.g. neurons, cardiomyocytes). Duties

  • Design, perform, and analyze experiments to provide data towards improved methods for working with iPSCs and for demonstrating mature cells; from products and protocol development to release to customers

  • Develop and conduct in-house experiments generating and using iPSCs with the potential to work with co-development partners and consult on customer experiments

  • Opportunity to work closely with the field application scientists as well as sales and marketing team on introducing the company and product to new customers Qualifications

  • M.S./Ph.D. degree in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, bioengineering, or biology related discipline

  • Good laboratory skills in molecular biology with 2-4 years of lab experience in cell culture, DNA and RNA isolation, basic and immunofluorescence microscopy, sterile techniques

  • Evidence of solid verbal and written communication skills, knowledge of computers, including excellent record keeping skills

  • Previous experience working with and or culturing of stem cells/iPSCs (preferably human)

  • Experience optimizing differentiation protocols is a plus

  • Evidence of grant-writing is a plus

  • Demonstrated ability to qualify cell maturity (electrophysiology or MEA a plus) -Capacity to work in a fast-paced environment

  • Highly motivated, independent self-starter - but a great team player too! -Resiliency and flexibility around shifting work streams and timeframes

  • Focused and meticulous with excellent attention to detail

Computational Biologist / Bioinformatician

Job Description


Computational Biologist JD

We are hiring scientists with an interest and skills in Computational Biology. Our work involves development and application of integrated systems biology models to investigate evolutionary factors of human disease, more specifically cancer genomics. We are researching fundamental biological processes, but also to developing new translational applications that are leading to breakthroughs in Molecular Biology.
You will have the opportunity to learn and use predicative analytics which includes a number of Deep Learning and Probabilistic Programming projects aimed at furthering scientific understanding complex human disease.
Current project include:
Disease profile recognition algorithms for every disease using sequence data for every known disease.
Disease initiation to know the origin and progression and how it will evolve using Bayesian probabilistic learning models.
QUALIFICATIONS:
PhD or Masters in Computer Science, Computing Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Statistical Biology, Biostatistician, Computational Biology or related fields.
Data mining, machine learning, deep learning
Algorithm development, implementation
Proven experience in application architecture and system design
Expertise in C/C++/Java/Python development environments
Ability to publish in scientific journals and present in scientific conferences
Strong oral and written communication skills
Principle responsibilities:
Digest complex data structures, perform statistical data reduction, summarization, normalization and multivariate data analyses and report findings using advanced visualization techniques .

Company Description

Who we are:
We provide the world's only system with the demonstrated ability to enable analysis and management of massively-large datasets composed of hundreds of thousands of human genomes. Unlike relational databases, which cannot efficiently handle the trillions of data points associated with even several dozen patient genomes, our platform has been used to successfully manage data from more than 350,000 whole genomes representing more than 40 million identified variants. Our informatics systems have been finely tuned on this massive knowledge base to provide users with unmatched confidence in their results. We are delivering the resources to the clinical domain so that physicians and geneticists can diagnose diseases of unknown origin faster and more accurately by quickly identifying and confirming the causative genes and mutations. We are a growing global genome informatics and diagnostics company offering the world's most proven technology for next generation sequence-based genetic testing and analysis.
