Who we are:
Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan. We will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.
Calico is seeking an experienced and motivated Laboratory Automation Engineer to join our team. This position will support internal research groups, migrating assays and processes from bench-top to automated liquid handling systems and integrated robotic platforms. The ideal candidate would also take on novel engineering projects; building prototype hardware and software for use in our research labs.
This work is highly collaborative, and the candidate must be able to work with scientists of all levels and from many different disciplines. Creativity, analytical thinking, and the ability to troubleshoot and solve problems while maintaining a positive attitude are critical to success in this position.
