Immunetics, Inc. brings advanced immunoassay technology to the diagnosis of infectious
diseases, with third generation ELISA and Western Blot kits and patented Miniblotter®
instrumentation. Recently approved products include the C6 peptide Lyme ELISA - the first
synthetic peptide ELISA for Lyme disease that has set a new performance standard, and the
Anthrax QuickELISA – the first FDA-approved test for anthrax infection. In an era of acute and
emerging infectious diseases, our products are at the front lines of healthcare. Our mission is
better, cost-efficient care through more accurate diagnosis. Immunetics has recently been
awarded NIH grants for development of a test for detection of pathogens in blood products and
for SARS. We collaborate with researchers worldwide to transform cutting edge technology into
new products for clinical diagnostics and research applications.
As lead scientist under a multi-year NIH grant-supported program, you will lead the
development of a molecular diagnostic assay for pathogen detection in clinical and blood
screening applications. The resulting product will address a critical healthcare need in the
management of patients with acute infections. This position combines hands-on R&D with group
and project management. You will supervise 1-2 scientists and work with external academic
collaborators. You will also work closely with QA and regulatory personnel for FDA compliance,
submissions and approvals.
Requires PhD and 5+ years industry experience developing molecular diagnostics for detection
of infectious diseases. Strong biochemistry/molecular biology bench skills including assay
development in a variety of formats, nucleic acid extraction, amplification and hybridization
techniques, primer and probe design, gels and blots, comparative sequence analysis. Background
in microbiology, infectious diseases and blood products experience a plus. Must have good
written, oral and laboratory math skills and some supervisory experience; a strong work ethic
and an entrepreneurial, creative approach to solving technical problems in a team environment.
Experience with the entire commercialization process would be helpful in transferring products
