We are currently seeking an experienced bench scientist to join our growing antibody development group. The ideal candidate will have expertise in both mammalian cell culture and antibody-based assays (Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry…). Expertise in immunohistochemistry in particular is required for this role. Additional experience in molecular biology and protein purification would also be an asset but is not required. In addition to the technical skills mentioned above we are seeking a highly-motivated self-starter with the ambition to manage projects and personnel as they mature into the role.
The use of antibodies as research tools, therapeutic drugs, and as capture reagents in diagnostic assays continues to grow. This position represents a very exciting opportunity to join a team of scientists working at the leading edge of antibody development and contribute to the growth of both our product and services portfolios.

If you are someone who enjoys working on a variety of projects and having the opportunity to innovate and grow a company, AI may well be the place for you!
Minimum requirements: BS in life sciences and at least 3 years of hands on experience in a lab setting. The successful candidate must be an independent scientist capable of planning and executing experiments without supervision. The candidate must have hands on experience with mammalian cell culture, antibody-based assays (Western blot, immunocytochemistry, and immunohistochemistry) and be capable of independently troubleshooting experiments. Expertise in immunohistochemistry is absolutely required. This position requires a highly-motivated self-starter who can grow into a role where they will provide leadership from the bench.
Preferred experience: Cell culture experience with additional experience performing antibody-based assays (Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry…). Experience working in a GMP environment would be an additional asset.
