Brisbane, California | Full Time
As part of Nitrome Biosciences growth and path towards the clinic, we are seeking to recruit an Associate Scientist with extensive experience in protein purification, LC/MS analysis, and biomarker development and analysis. The successful candidate will develop and perform protein purifications from cell and tissue lysates in order to isolate nitrated proteins and other targets. S/he will send these samples for LC/MS analysis, determine nitrated protein profiles for novel nitrase enzymes, and follow-up with biochemical and cell-based confirmation studies. In addition, the Associate Scientist will work with institutional collaborators to acquire tissues for biomarker analysis for various internal programs and determine optimal biomarkers for specific disease indications.
This position requires enthusiasm and a strong work ethic, the ability to learn new biology and methods quickly, and to problem-solve creatively. The Associate Scientist will use his/her extensive experience in biochemistry and protein purification to characterize novel enzymes as they are discovered, and to ensure high quality data that are accurate and reproducible. The successful candidate will work collaboratively in a cross-functional environment, proactively establish and build relationships with institutional collaborators, and utilize her/his knowledge of drug discovery and development assays to advance programs.
