We are currently seeking a scientist to support the projects related to the metabolic engineering of conventional and non-conventional microbial hosts for the production of plant and microbial secondary metabolites. This position will focus on genetic modifications of fungal and bacterial strains and the candidate is expected to have a strong background in molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, metabolic engineering, and other related disciplines. Strong technical, organizational, and communication skills, as well as the ability to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, are essential.

Conagen scientists fungal biology

We are currently seeking a senior scientist to support projects related to the engineering of microbial (filamentous fungi) hosts for metabolite and protein production. The candidate must have experience working with fungal systems. A background in molecular biology, biochemistry, metabolic engineering, and other related disciplines is expected. Strong technical, organizational, and communication skills, as well as the ability to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, are essential.

We are currently seeking a senior scientist to support projects related to strain engineering of conventional and non-conventional microbial hosts. The candidate is expected to develop bioanalytical LC/MS methods for the quantitation of various types of biomolecules, particularly proteins, peptides, and lipids. Strong technical, organizational, and communication skills, as well as the ability to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, are essential.

Conagen scientist

We are currently seeking a research associate to support projects related to the production of high-value natural products using engineered microorganisms. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in molecular biology, microbiology, metabolic engineering, chemical engineering, and/or other related disciplines. Strong technical, organizational, and communication skills, as well as the ability to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, are essential.

We are currently seeking a python developer to join our Computational and Automated Biology Team at Conagen. This role is to develop and maintain our laboratory information management system (LIMS) to support projects related to the metabolic engineering of conventional and non-conventional microbial hosts for the production of plant and microbial secondary metabolites. The candidate will develop and improve our LIMS system for sample tracking, permission management, and data collection from robotic equipment.

We are currently seeking a talented, self-motivated lab automation engineer to join our Computational and Automated Biology department to support projects related to strain engineering, protein engineering, and gene discovery. The engineer in this role will be responsible for designing and validating high-throughput automated workflows that combine molecular biology with robotic platforms (custom workstations, Biomek, Tecan, and Opentrons), training and calibrating hardware, and resolving hardware errors to improve reliability. Experience in metabolic engineering, molecular biology, and other related disciplines is a plus.

We are seeking a lab manager to assist our scientists in a microbial synthetic biology lab. The ideal candidate will be highly organized, outgoing, and self-motivated with the capability to work independently. This position is responsible for maintaining the daily functions of the laboratory which include managing the lab support team, maintaining and ordering laboratory supplies, and facilitating compliance with all required safety measures.

Lab Support Specialist – Media

We are seeking a lab support specialist to assist our lab manager and scientists in a microbial synthetic biology lab. The ideal candidate will be highly organized, outgoing, and self-motivated with the capability to work independently. This position requires participation in media preparation, sterilization of supplies, inventory, housekeeping, and glassware maintenance for a company of approximately 60 scientists.
