Emeryville, CA, USA
Posted on Monday, January 15, 2024
Want to help drive a revolution in synthetic biology? Many synthetic biology companies aim to enable humans to thrive sustainably in a resource-limited world. But despite tremendous breakthroughs in reading and writing genetic diversity, the ability to measure the function of those changes hasn't scaled. At Triplebar, we're opening the measurement bottleneck by orders of magnitude to accelerate the discovery, development and adoption of bioengineered molecules.

The Role

Want to help build novel technology to reduce our carbon and energy footprint? We're looking for an energetic Fermentation RA II, III or Sr. RA and colleague to join our Bioactives+Functionals team. You will contribute in developing microbial fermentation processes and strain characterization methods to screen strain performance under industrially relevant conditions to biomanufacture nutritional proteins. You will be a key member of the team by using bioreactors to generate high-quality fermentation data. Within the company you will have ample opportunities to expand and participate in a wide variety of R&D efforts, as well as cross-functional disciplines (biochemistry, engineering, software development, materials science, etc). If you're interested in bringing your talents to make great products that make an impact, please apply!
