Description :
Ovid Research is looking for a highly skilled Research Associate to join our team. We’re a start-up with the mission of generating viable human eggs from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Successful development of our research could have many benefits, such as removing age limits on motherhood, allowing for easy screening of eggs with harmful genetic mutations and allowing same-sex couples to reproduce. To accomplish our goal, we must derive human germ cells from iPSCs (human germ cell-like cells, hPGCLCs) that resemble both the transcriptional and epigenetic profile of in vivo germ cells (GCs) that are able to enter meiosis and develop to viable human eggs. We have multiple experiment lines currently ongoing to accomplish this goal, which includes high throughput screening using reporter gene knock-in iPSC cell lines. Previous RA or technician experience having done qPCR and cell culture work highly valued. We are currently a small team, but we are funded and well connected in Silicon Valley. We’ll offer competitive pay, company equity, and excellent healthcare benefits for this position.
