    T2 Biosystems, founded in 2006 by renowned scientists from MIT and Mass General Hospital, is an in vitro diagnostic company that has developed an innovative and proprietary technology platform that offers a rapid, sensitive and simple alternative to existing diagnostic methodologies.     We are using our T2 Magnetic Resonance platform, or T2MR, to develop a broad set of applications aimed at reducing mortality rates, improving patient outcomes and reducing the cost of healthcare by helping medical professionals make targeted treatment decisions earlier.  T2MR enables rapid detection of pathogens, biomarkers and other abnormalities in a variety of unpurified patient sample types, including whole blood, and can detect cellular targets as limits of detection as low as one colony forming unit per milliliter, or CFU/ml.  Our initial development efforts utilizing T2MR target sepsis and hemostasis, which are areas of significant unmet medical need in which existing therapies could be more effective with improved diagnostics. We have completed a pivotal clinical trial for our T2Dx diagnostic instrument, or T2Dx, and T2 Candida panel, or T2Candida, which have the ability to rapidly identify the five clinically relevant species of Candida, a fungal pathogen known to cause sepsis.

    On September 22, 2014, T2 Biosystems received market authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its first two products, the T2Candida® Panel and the T2Dx® Instrument for the direct detection of Candida species in human whole blood specimens from patients with symptoms of, or medical conditions predisposing the patient to, invasive fungal infections. T2Candida and T2Dx, for the first time, provide sensitive detection of specific sepsis-causing pathogens directly from a whole blood specimen in approximately four hours. All other currently FDA-cleared detection systems require cultured blood samples for species-specific identification and take two to five days or more to provide results.

    T2 Biosystems was named to the FierceMedicalDevices "Fierce 15" list in 2012, received the prestigious SBANE award in 2013 and received the Most Promising Company award at the Personalized Medicine World Conference in 2014.

    What’s in it for you?

    In this role, you will have an opportunity to design, develop, and demonstrate manufacturing bioprocesses for microbiome therapeutics. You’ll establish yourself as a subject matter expert in upstream process development of anaerobic microbial strains commonly found in the human microbiome, with emphasis on medium development, small-scale and high-throughput cultivation systems, bioreactor cultivation, process analytical technologies, and harvest operations that may include concentration and diafiltration technologies. While becoming a technical subject matter expert, you’ll also develop yourself into a project leader, with focus on overseeing and implementing conceptual scoping, process design, equipment selection, vendor interaction, technology transfer, and process demonstration with varying degrees of responsibility. Finally, we’re looking for team members that are awesome coaches and mentors for our current technicians, engineers, and scientists, and with a real focus on building and supporting a learning organization. This is going to enable you to become an expert in becoming a leader by influence – critical to building the Seres Therapeutics family.
    In the course of becoming all of the above, you’ll form really close partnerships within the bioprocess development team (analytical, formulations, and process development). You’ll also partner closely with Quality Assurance and Control, ensuring strict compliance with appropriate cGMPs. You’ll be interacting intimately with both manufacturing and discovery, and providing key input to the project teams, and when you’re ready, you’ll be a part of that product development team!

    How do you know if you’re the right fit?

    If you think you’re ready to build a company that is challenging some of the oldest paradigms in medicine…
    “What do you mean you’re going to treat infections with more bacteria? Are you nuts?” No, we’re not nuts, but we’re a super motivated, highly talented, very integrated group of scientists and engineers developing new ways of helping patients.
    …Then we want to hear from you. This means you want to have impact at Seres by participating in building out a world-class bioprocess development team, with direct influence on culture and philosophy. To be successful you will have had significant relevant industrial experience of biologics or vaccine process development or manufacturing sciences and technology, with a focus on microbial systems. You’ve managed complex projects (on-scope, on-budget, on-time), demonstrated exceptionally clear communication, and you’re very comfortable in a fast-pace, often changing and uncertain environment, but for which the mission and true North are well defined.

    The other stuff

    This is typically a role best suited for Ph.D. level candidates who have had direct reports in a top-notch biopharmaceutical environment. This role will report to the Senior Director of Bioprocess Development and have direct accountability for success of the CMC team as you will be a key member of the core leadership along with your peers in process, analytical, and formulations development.
