DefiniGEN were founded in 2013 as a spin-out from Cambridge University, we use a patented differentiation process in combination with in-house gene editing to differentiate human iPSC to hepatocyte-like cells which are then used to support our client’s work in developing next generation liver therapeutics. Typically we generate models of liver disease using our technology and screen client therapeutics for activity using our in-house phenotyping capability.
This is a laboratory-based position to work in one of our project teams. You will be in charge to organise and deliver key client projects and report progress to the Team Leader. You will also contribute to DefiniGEN’s innovation projects supervised by a Senior Scientist. The work typically consists of a combination of the following (depending on the project): generating gene-edited iPSC lines, differentiating them into hepatocyte-like cells, treating cells with specific reagents, conducting and analysing cell-based assays as well as generating reports. You will also have some notions of troubleshooting and simple experiment design. It would be suitable for someone with at least three years of laboratory experience in the stem cell biology field (preferably in the industry). Full training provided.
