BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.
BioMarin’s Research & Development group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Research & Development involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives.
BioMarin seeks a highly motivated Technical Scientist to establish a Flow Cytometry Core at the state-of-the-art BioMarin Research Center. The Core will provide access to instrumentation, training, and experimental assistance across all Research and Development groups. The Scientist will oversee the maintenance and troubleshooting of a growing fleet of flow cytometers (currently LSR Fortessa, FACSCanto and FACSMelody), as well as additional cell sorting equipment (AutoMACS).
The individual will oversee the training of self-operators on the equipment and will serve as a resource in all aspects of flow cytometry. The successful candidate is expected to be informed of emerging trends and techniques, and will likely be called upon to develop and implement new methods. This will require scientific rigor, creative thinking, effective execution and first-rate collaboration between members of cross-functional teams.
