Subject: RNA Biologist position at New England Biolabs
Dear Toronto RNA Researchers,
We are passing along an employment opportunity at New England Biolabs in
Ipswich, MA, USA, for an RNA Biologist, Research Scientist level 1:
The RNA Research Division at New England Biolabs is seeking a motivated,
energetic, and scientifically rigorous individual to join a team engaged in
research and development of new and innovative tools for making,
manipulating, and studying RNA. Projects are part of a basic research
program that is exploring the use of in vitro synthesized modified RNAs
for biopharmaceutical applications. Research will be undertaken in a
highly collaborative and fast-paced environment. The successful candidate
will be responsible for the design and execution of experiments, the
optimization of protocols, and the generation and communication of
· Plan and perform experiments to support a research program focused
on engineering, characterization, and evaluation of RNA polymerase variants
for in vitro synthesis of modified RNA and understanding the biological
consequences of synthetic modified RNA.
· Effectively communicate the ongoing progress of the projects,
including the preparation of technical summaries and protocols.
· Ph.D. in RNA Biology, Biochemistry, or Molecular Biology with 1-3
years of relevant experience.
· Proven track record in RNA biochemistry and biology, protein
analyses, and standard molecular biology techniques.
· Demonstrated track record of producing high-quality work in the
form of peer-reviewed publications.
· Excellent organizational, as well as written and verbal
communication, skills; ability to generate and maintain detailed lab
records and to make recommendations based on research outcomes.
· A strong work ethic, with an emphasis on both efficiency and
quality of work.
· Experience in structural analyses of RNA and/or in tools to
optimize RNA structure and expression will be a plus.
· The ability to multi-task effectively while working independently,
and/or to contribute to team goals while working in a fast-paced
· A commitment to research excellence, strong analytical and
problem-solving skills, and enthusiasm to learn and develop new techniques.
