Full-Time- Stem Cell Neural Development

Do you love working as part of a team dedicated to making stem cells do great things? If so, then we have the project for you. Scaled Biolabs is looking for a talented, stem cell-focused research associate to support a CIRM grant-funded project to deliver clinical grade dopaminergic neurons derived from pluripotent stem cells, as a therapy for Parkinson’s disease. You will work with Scaled’s breakthrough tools for high-throughput, data-driven biology and develop robust cell production protocols suitable for the clinic. This position reports to the Lead Bioengineer.

Scaled Biolabs accelerates discovery and translation of cell therapies, to improve quality of life through regenerative medicine. Our core technology uses a miniaturized cell culture lab which runs nearly 10,000 experiments in parallel, and an advanced bioinformatics platform that turns single-cell resolution data into deep biological insight. We use this optimization engine to relieve the R&D bottlenecks of companies bringing on complex, advanced medicines such as cell therapies. We are a pre-seed stage, revenue positive, Indie Bio graduate company, and will be based at QB3@953.

Required Qualifications:

  • B.S. or B.E., with further experience in an academic or industrial project team
  • Complex mammalian cell culture experience is essential
  • Solid record of written work, either academic publications or project reports
  • “Process improvement” mindset and willingness to capture metadata to improve not just the science, but our fundamental approach as well
  • Enthusiasm for diving into non-standard, cutting-edge tools and techniques
  • Ability to complement academic rigor with a make-it-happen attitude to drive tangible results in a startup environment
  • Work authorization in the United States


  • Stem cell, neural developmental biology or bioengineering skillset
  • Experience with microfluidics for cell culture and analysis<
  • Scientific computing skillset

Role and Responsibilities:

    • Maintain cell stocks and execute cell-based assays and experiments
    • Support the Lead Bioengineer in design, execution and reporting on experiments and overall scientific strategy
    • Execute iterative optimization campaigns using design-of-experiments statistical techniques and Scaled’s microfluidics enabled stem cell culture optimization technology
    • Potentially manage the support of a research intern on the project
    • Take on flexible responsibilities if and when necessary to play a role in the company’s overarching mission

Full time salary, equity, generous paid time-off policy
