About You:

You want to explore and develop novel technologies for genetic engineering, and complex organoid development to tackle ambitious synthetic biology applications for generating human ovarian cell types in a dish. You thrive in working at the intersection of multiple biological disciplines utilizing high-throughput, scalable technology to answer basic biology questions for applications that address pressing industry and public health needs. You enjoy working in a creative and diverse group of people, leveraging your expertise and on-the-job learning to push innovation in the project.

Key Responsibilities:

  • As a Scientist, you will be at the center of our operations and will find that your work is both discovery and translation based, with shifting priorities as projects mature.
  • With your deep knowledge in the discipline, you will be an active team member who influences at the project team level and can lead focused research teams towards project completion.
  • Your ability to plan will help in preparing short-term work activities on projects as well as guide long term project goals.
  • Your expertise will be utilized to develop stem cell based differentiation protocols for generating novel ovarian cell types, helping to improve production processes, differentiation yields, and engineer high-throughput screening methods.
  • Pay attention to detail, strictly adhere to safety protocols, and use knowledge of basic laboratory procedures to advance projects under rapidly shifting priorities and timelines.

Qualifications:

  • PhD in Biology, bioengineering, or biomedical sciences.
  • Extensive experience in stem cell culture is required.
  • Expertise with stem cell differentiation, genetic screening, and organoid development is required.
  • Expertise in next generation sequencing, RNA-Seq, scRNA-Seq, chIP-Seq or Cut&Run,and methyl-seq is required.
  • Experience with molecular cloning, screening library creation, highly parallel and multiplex screening, and flow cytometry is required.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with protein expression characterization is preferred.
  • Experience with confocal imaging is preferred.
  • Experience with cryosectioning, whole mount imaging, and immunofluorescence is preferred.
  • Experience with mass spectroscopy in biological samples.
    Highly organized, detail-oriented individual capable of keeping laboratory inventories up to date.
  • Robust knowledge in fertility research is preferred, preferably in human or mammalian systems.
  • The capacity to work effectively in a team-oriented environment on several researchprograms simultaneously with aggressive timelines and excellence in multi-tasking.
  • Experience with transcriptomic analysis and data analysis languages and software such as R, python, graph pad, excel, slurm, flow jo is preferred.

About Gameto

Gameto is a new breed of a biotechnology company in female reproductive health. We are using cell engineering to develop novel therapeutics for infertility and other diseases of the female reproductive system. Gameto raised $40 million and is currently in preclinical development of a biologic Fertilo with leading fertility clinics in the USA, Spain and Latin America. We are headquartered in New York City, USA and have an office in Madrid, Spain. Gameto is led by physician turned entrepreneur, Dina Radenkovic, and a serial entrepreneur & leader in the fertility space, Martin Varsavsky, founder of Prelude Network, largest proprietary fertility clinics chain in the USA.

Our team is mission-driven, kind, collaborative and authentic. We are determined to rewrite history and use scientific breakthroughs to create products people love. We believe that great results are best delivered by a highly mathematically organized yet simultaneously creative group working together like a synchronous clock.
