Scientist - Flow Cytometry

Precision for Medicine


Are you creative, problem solver, who is passionate about delivering high quality data to support immune monitoring of clinical trials?

Be part of a team of renowned scientific authorities delivering groundbreaking assay results using clinical specimens to accelerate drugs into the clinic.

Precision’s specialty in-vitro and ex vivo assays achieve a variety of research, safety, efficacy, and biomarker objectives. Meticulous sample handling and sophisticated global logistics are fundamental for achieving high-quality, accurate study results. Our services include research and clinical trial support, backed by our repository, cell biology, sample processing, immunology and molecular capabilities—all with industry-leading quality systems, including GxP, ISO 9001, ISO 13485, College of American Pathology (CAP), and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).

We offer one of the broadest arrays of immune monitoring solutions in the industry. Our technology platforms include flow cytometry, ELISpot, NanoString, and multiplexed cytokine assessments that can be implemented consistently at scale.

You will participate in flow cytometry projects through assay development, validation, and execution. You will be performing assays according to SOPs, supporting development of new/existing procedures and SOPs.

To support real time clinical sample analysis, you will work Tuesday - Saturday.

How you will make a difference:

  • Perform multi-color (10+ color) flow cytometry primarily, as well as, other immune assays
  • Design and perform experiments, independently and accurately analyze and present data
  • High quality output is essential in all projects
  • Trouble shoot and correct routine scientific issues/problems
  • Identify, update and implement emerging laboratory techniques
  • Maintain and support safe lab practices and environment
  • Work collaboratively with other technical teams in resource sharing and providing technical expertise
  • Monitor Product and Service/R&D related project expenses
  • Act as a scientific resource externally to clients and internally
  • Assist with writing, reviewing and editing contract and grant applications/proposals as appropriate
