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 aim to work 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 on-the-job learning to push innovation in the project.

Key Responsibilities:

  • As a Scientist, you will be highly integrated into our research operations and will find that your work is both discovery and translation based, with shifting priorities as projects mature.
  • You will be an active team member who works within an interdisciplinary, focused research team 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.
  • You will be trained 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 Genetics, Biological Sciences, Development, or Therapeutics
  • Technical proficiency in human stem cell culturing
  • Experience with flow cytometry, RT-qPCR, immunofluorescence confocal microscopy, and cell viability assessment

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 1+ year experience in cell differentiation, cell development, and/or cell engineering research
  • Technical training in human cell culture, including primary human cell lines, monolayer and suspension cell culture methods.
  • Experience with bioreactors and industrial scaled cell manufacturing culture, in GMP and non-GMP formats
  • Experience with one or more of the following is advantageous but not required:
    • Next generation sequencing (NGS) library construction
    • Molecular cloning and transfection of human genes
    • Organoid development and culturing
    • Programming experience in R and python

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.
