Research Associate – Immunofluorescence

Danvers, MA

We are currently seeking a highly motivated and detail-oriented individual for a Research Associate position within the Cytometry Group. The candidate will contribute to the innovation, development, and support of research tools, with a primary focus on evaluating antibodies by fluorescence microscopy.


  • Analyze antibody performance in cell and tissue-based imaging assays. Techniques include both high-throughput, plate-based imaging, as well as low-throughput, high-resolution microscopy.
  • Collaborate with project scientists and survey recent literature to design and execute experiments that demonstrate antibody specificity in relevant cell/tissue models.
  • Mammalian cell culture and tissue processing (including frozen and paraffin-embedded samples).
  • Develop and optimize staining protocols for new antibody targets.
  • Independently perform standard qualitative and quantitative data analyses, and communicate results to senior scientists.
  • Identify, analyze and troubleshoot technical issues relating to development and quality control. This includes both internal and external, customer-facing communications.
  • Must complete scientific and technical tasks on aggressive timelines, adapt to changing priorities, and manage a complex and varied target pipeline.


  • BA, BS or MS degree in a biological science (e.g., molecular biology, biochemistry, or biotechnology).
  • 1-2 years of post-graduate laboratory experience preferred.
  • Enthusiastic and motivated collaborator with strong interpersonal skills.
  • Good communication skills (written and oral) and the ability to work in a multidisciplinary team environment are essential.
  • Excel-based data management skills are required, and candidates with a background in computer science, robotics, or lab automation will be strongly preferred.
  • Previous experience with confocal microscopy, spectral imaging, immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, and/or HTS/HCS techniques is strongly preferred.
  • Knowledge of signal transduction, cell culture, and tissue processing techniques is preferred.
  • Strong organization skills are a must.
