Bioscience Research Associate II, natural and non-natural peptide chemistry for drug discovery and diagnostics.
The Biosciences Division at SRI International is seeking a motivated Research Associate II to join our research team developing novel types of synthetic sequence-defined non-natural polymers as therapeutic and diagnostic reagents.
In this role, the individual will conduct solid-phase synthesis on automated peptide synthesis instrument and purification on preparative HPLC of non-natural polymers, in addition to basic organic synthesis. The individual will work closely with a team of experienced peptide and synthetic chemists developing a robust process for the production of novel synthetic polymers and developing new applications as therapeutics, affinity reagents and/or sensors.
S/he will join a highly interactive and collegial group of chemists, biochemists, biologists, engineers and computational scientists within the Discovery Technologies group as well as more broadly within the entire Biosciences Division and other divisions at SRI International.
B.A. or B.S. degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry or related fields with a minimum of 3 years laboratory experience
Experience handling chemical reagents and following chemistry or biology protocols.
Experience performing peptide synthesis and LC/MS analysis.
Experience in care of laboratory equipment and troubleshooting breakdowns.
Should work well in interdisciplinary team-based groups.
Knowledge in the safe handling and use of chemicals in the lab environment.
Must be well organized, detail oriented and enthusiastic.
Motivated and self-conscious.
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
FREE Membership in APS is open to graduate students, professionals, and retired professionals, with an interest in peptides or a related scientific field.
