What will you be doing?

We are searching for an Intern or Co-op to join the Cell Engineering team in support of cell banking and cell line development. 

This role offers the following learning opportunities:

  • Learn proper cell culture aseptic technique, method, and theory.  You will leave Dewpoint “skilled in the art” of cell culture, with skills transferrable to any cell biology laboratory
  • Exposure to industry best practices:  mycoplasma testing, cell line annotation and serial passage tracking, cell line growth optimization strategies and cell line troubleshooting
  • Hands on training of both small scale and large-scale cell culture techniques to support preparation of small-scale research cell banks and large-scale HTS (high throughput screening) cell banks
  • Live Cell imaging with IncuCyte™ for cell line growth kinetics and cell bank quality testing
  • Cell bank registration:  training and use of Benchling™ registration and inventory system
  • As skills develop, engage with our Cell Engineering team to support cell line engineering efforts
  • Become a valuable contributor to other initiatives as they arise in our fast paced, startup environment

What do you need?

To do that you will need…

  • Be comfortable with small hand movements—there is a level of dexterity needed for aseptic handling of small, sterile tubes.
  • Ability to communicate effectively in English, the shared language of our multicultural team

Join us and get hands-on experience from the leaders in condensate drug discovery. Together, we are leveraging a transformative shift in the understanding of cellular biology to discover and advance breakthrough therapeutics for the toughest diseases.

About Dewpoint

Dewpoint Therapeutics is the first company founded to apply the emerging discipline of biomolecular condensates to drug discovery. Dewpoint believes that a vast range of conditions have pathways that are regulated by condensates or arise from the dysfunction of condensates — including cancer, neurodegeneration, and metabolic disease. Dewpoint scientists are working in Boston, MA, and Dresden and Frankfurt, Germany, to translate condensate biology into treatments for the toughest diseases.
