Scientist II/Senior Scientist I: Protein Chemistry 
Duties & Responsibilities: 
  • Purify and characterize proteins, both native and heterologous expressed, to determine similarity to the native protein including post-translational modifications
  • Independently execute tasks including development of new assays, setting up new methods for protein characterization, regular sample handling, and developing analytical methods
  • Development of methods to characterize protein functionality
  • Contributing to the discovering of connections between genotypes and key phenotypes of filamentous fungi, to develop improved strains
  • Characterization of secretome and proteome of wild type, engineered and improved strains
  • Working with molecular biology team to develop strategies to engineer filamentous fungi to produce products of interest
  • Working well in teams to develop new technology and products you’d never achieve on your own
  • Provide data-driven insights to solve technical challenges
  • Conduct bench-top work, and analyze, summarize present scientific outcomes
  • Provide accurate, clear, and concise reports on R&D activities
Position Requirements: 
  • BS, MS or PhD in Protein Chemistry, Chemistry, Biochemistry, or a related technical field
  • The specific job level offered will depend on qualifications. As guidance, the Scientist II position requires a BS with 10+ years, MS with 5+ years or PhD with no experience. Positions at the Senior Scientist I level requires a Ph.D. degree with 2 – 5 years related experience
  • An innovative mind-set and can-do attitude coupled with an enthusiasm for engineering filamentous fungi for protein production
  • Contributed to strain improvement programs focused on protein expression, metabolic engineering or other applied objectives
  • Knowledge of protein structure and function properties
  • Expertise in protein purification and structural analysis
  • Expertise characterizing proteins for glycosylation
  • Experience in quantifying and characterizing heterologous produced proteins is preferred
