At Nautilus, we have a big and important mission: improve the health of millions by unleashing the potential of the proteome to accelerate drug development and enable a new world of precision and personalized medicine. We are developing a single-molecule protein analysis platform of unprecedented sensitivity, scale, and ease of use that we believe will democratize access to the proteome – one of the most dynamic and valuable sources of biological insight. To accomplish this, we are pursuing deep, hard science with an entrepreneurial mindset and creating a world-class team of builders, innovators, and dreamers across a wide range of disciplines.
The Director of Flowcell Engineering & Surface Chemistry will lead a team of engineers and scientists to develop and validate advanced methods for cost-effectively patterning and functionalizing high density arrays on glass and silicon substrates with the goals of achieving high single molecule occupancy, low surface non-specific binding, and extended shelf-life. To this end, this individual will need to work closely with other peer groups within Nautilus including reagents, assay, instrument engineering, bioinformatics, and operations. The ideal candidate will have prior demonstrated experience leading multi-disciplinary teams and working at the intersection of engineering, chemistry and biology.
As a key technical leader, this individual will spearhead the continued development of existing chip, flowcell, and surface chemistry designs, and related manufacturing and quality control processes. Advanced research activities resulting in next generation chips, surfaces and flowcells will also be led by this individual.
