The incumbent contributes to programs that apply molecular biology and genetics to the modification of microorganisms and cell lines that express vaccine antigens of interest. Studies directed toward improving the growth and productivity of bacterial antigen production strains is a major responsibility of the position. Support of a program that seeks to optimize in vitro transcription and template preparation is also in scope. The position is also responsible for preparing plasmids for expression of recombinant proteins, primarily in E coli. Responsibilities also include the systematic cell banking and archiving of bacterial strains. Experience in microbiology and genetics is required. An appreciation of cell banking strategies would be helpful. Experience in RNA extraction/preparation and in vitro transcription to support the design of processes for bulk production of RNA DS would be highly desirable as well. The position will pivot to fermentation and cell culture to analyze strains and as such a background in either would be extremely desirable.
