We are at the beginning of an incredible journey, and are looking for passionate individuals to join us on this important mission.

The QC Analyst may also support and identification and implementation of corrective and preventive actions. He/she should be able to work effectively within the group, within Quality, and across site.

Perform other established analytical methods such as qPCR and CE to support QC operations. Participate in assay troubleshooting, qualification and validation if needed. Manage the procurement, use, and maintenance of scientific equipment, instrumentation, and computer systems. Write and revise documents such as SOPs and technical reports.
