Research Assistant III – Microfluidic Cell Culture Technician — Wyss Institute @ Harvard University

The mission of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University is to transform human healthcare and the environment by emulating the way nature builds. Developed as an alliance between Harvard and other premier academic and clinical partner institutions, Institute faculty and staff collaborate in high-risk, fundamental research and science-driven technology development. A major focus of the Institute is to translate the technologies developed by its faculty and staff into commercial products and therapies through collaborations with clinical investigators and establishment of corporate alliances. For more information, visit:

The Wyss Institute at Harvard University seeks a talented, enthusiastic individual to contribute to the development of a new automated system that integrates multiple “organs-on-chips” to study complex human physiology outside the body. This “human-on-a-chip” will be used to rapidly assess human response to new candidate drugs, providing critical information on their safety and efficacy without the use of animals. The successful candidate will help develop the Wyss organ-on-chip technologies with a focus on the testing and troubleshooting of new microfluidic components through cell culture. This will include seeding cells in microfluidic devices, maintaining primary cells and established cell lines in culture in a variety of engineered organs-on-chips, conducting assays including ELISAs and immunohistochemistry, and performing fluoresce microscopy analysis of cultured samples.

The chosen candidate will carry out experiments, organize and analyze data and report experimental results. The candidate will contribute to Institute presentations, reports, patent applications, and publications, and interact regularly with Institute faculty and staff.

Basic Qualifications    B.A./B.S. in biological science or engineering (such as cell biology, biomedical engineering, molecular biology, biochemistry,) or related field is required. A minimum of 2 years experience with mammalian tissue culture and microscopy or related experience. Education may count towards years of experience.

Additional Qualifications   Strong cell culture background preferred. Past experience with microfluidic devices is preferred. Experience with immunohistochemistry and fluorescence microscopy is also desirable. Strong organizational and communication skills required to assist and collaborate with multidisciplinary groups of engineers, biologists and clinicians. Ability to tackle multiple projects simultaneously in a dynamic team is essential.
