Where the Chemistry Happens
With a focus on biotechnology laboratory automation, you will create automated workflows and stand-alone automated pipetting methods. In this role, you will be required to lead and/or assist in designing and executing automation protocols as well as the interpretation of laboratory results and managing of hardware malfunctions. You will work under moderate supervision as a member of the site laboratory automation team.
Qualifications – BASF recognizes institutions of Higher Education which are accredited by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or equivalent
Formula for Success
Your serious safety focus, attention to detail, problem-solving skills, and decision-making skills will be valued assets as this is a hands-on laboratory position (light lifting, bending, reaching and pipetting required).
Leveraging your education in a scientific or engineering discipline and your industrial experience and/or laboratory automation experience (2-5 years), you will conduct daily lab work: consumable handling, automation run setup and cleanup, colony picking, and plate library management.
Utilizing your experience with programing liquid handlers and lab automation instruments, you will develop and validate methods on liquid handlers including Hamilton, Tecan, and Agilent liquid handlers.
Your scientific curiosity and critical thinking will enable the team to construct custom in-house system to enable all stages of research.
Your technical engineering skills (SolidWorks, 3D printing, Matlab, Python, etc.) will enrich the skill set of the group and enable creative solutions to daily work.
Your prior experience with sample preparation techniques, trouble shooting skills, and programing will be essential as you develop and validate methods on integrated robotics systems and programing scheduling software (Retisoft Genera).
Your understanding of data acquisition and digitalization ability will serve you well for conducting basic data analysis and using information to make informed decisions.
Acting with self-motivation as an example for the team and using your keen attention to detail, you will remain up to date with biotech automation equipment, technology, and what our competitors are doing.
Demonstrating your strong written and verbal communication skills and presentation skills, you will facilitate the transfer of automated protocols and provide subsequent automation support as needed.
