  • MTA, BTA, CTA, or a Master’s in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Biotechnology, or a related subject (Candidates with a PhD or in the process of acquiring a PhD will not be considered for this position)
  • 3+ years of experience in cell culture and molecular biology
  • Experience in generating cell lines using a variety of genetic manipulation methods
  • Proven ability to perform standard lab operations independently and execute detailed protocols including troubleshooting as well as writing protocols
  • Ability to collaborate in a multidisciplinary and dynamic environment and contribute to scientific teams
  • Ability to communicate effectively in English, the shared language of our multicultural team

If you have this it is nice but not necessary…

  • Experience in working with iPSc-derived cardiomyocytes and/or primary cardiomyocytes

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 Berlin, Germany, to translate condensate biology into treatments for the toughest diseases.
Dewpoint strives to cultivate an inclusive international community that welcomes and empowers everyone. We reject racism, discrimination, harassment, brutality, and all other manifestations of hate. We draw strength from diversity.
