Science is an early stage company developing technologies for a range of serious unmet medical needs. We are unafraid to take difficult technical risks, secure in the knowledge that with a clear understanding of what we are doing and with support from powerful modern tools, more progress is possible than might be immediately obvious. Regardless of role or team, the two most important factors we look for in a candidate are evidence of exceptional ability and the addition of positive energy to the group. As a small, very early stage team in a largely unstructured environment, the ability to independently orient yourself to the problems that need to be solved and then follow through is essential.

Science is looking for genome engineers enthusiastic about developing new therapeutics on the interface of cell biology and medical devices. Candidates can look forward to helping set up and scale a focused research program in collaboration with a world-class team of scientists and engineers with diverse technical backgrounds. As part of a dynamically growing company, this role is a good fit for candidates who want to become technical leaders and grow with the company. Ideal candidates will have expertise in editing genomes in human iPS cells, optimizing iPS differentiation protocols, and/or utilizing bioinformatic approaches to achieve these goals. Background in neuroscience or experience working with retinal tissues is a plus.
