Please note that no relocation assistance is provided for the internship program. 

Position Summary: 

  • Cell culture is at the core of any recombinant protein production project. With increased availability of advanced technologies, it becomes possible to improve yields, shorten lead times, facilitate purification, and improve product quality, by creating and screening more expression clones, at more diverse cell culture conditions. This is an ideal position for an intern who desires to gain interdisciplinary experience at the crossroads of molecular biology, microbiology, automation, and protein chemistry. The goal of the project is to design and/or improve our strategies for development of best producing clones and cultures. With the primary focus on increasing throughput by using innovative strategies combined with automated platforms, robotics, and computer technology, the techniques may involve one or more of the following: cell line creation and selection, cell culture condition screening, protein expression analysis by electrophoretic and immunochemical techniques, and high-throughput protein purification techniques. The expression systems employed include E. coli and mammalian cell lines. The desired candidate is technology- savvy and has aptitude for innovation. A good academic understanding of basic biochemistry and microbiology principles will be applied in modern industrial settings. The intern will have a chance to get familiar with cutting edge instrumentation and technologies.
