We are seeking a highly independent and innovative scientist to join the Cellular Screening team in the Human Assay Technologies group at Vertex. You will be self-motivated with a strong foundation in cell biology and have experience with cell-based phenotypic assays, including work with complex cell types such as iPSC-derived and primary cells. In this position you will be responsible for developing human disease-relevant cell assays to understand and address the underlying cause of serious life-threatening diseases. Target identification/validation and mechanism of action studies using innovative approaches and technologies will be required. Experience with miniaturized assays (384 or 1536) and the knowledge of multiplex assay platforms, HTS workflows, data analysis, and data reporting is necessary. The understanding of robust statistical analysis, multi-parametric data analysis and basic command line programming is a plus. Do you have a track record for innovation in cellular screening? We'd love to talk to you.
The Cellular Screening group supports small molecule hit discovery and optimization for all disease areas in the Vertex drug discovery portfolio at the Boston site. As a member of our team you will be on multiple discovery project teams.
