    The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a highly regarded national voluntary health services agency, is expanding the staff of its newly built-out R&D laboratory in Lexington, MA (greater Boston area).  Focus of the lab is the development and testing of assays and technologies that may lead to new treatments for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

    The work at the CFFT Lab includes screening of chemical libraries using multiple formats and readouts from biochemical, biophysical, and cell-based assays.  Eventually the bioactivity of small molecules and other reagents needs to be validated in primary human bronchial epithelial (hBE) cells obtained from CF lung explants.  The Cell Bank Manager is expected to establish new in house capabilities for the isolation of hBE cells from lung tissue, expansion, banking and potentially distribution to other labs.  The cell bank may grow to include cells from other epithelial tissues.

    Primary job duties (hands-on and as manager) include: dissection of human lung tissue, isolation of bronchial epithelial cells, cell banking, QC and genotype confirmation.  Research Associates may need to be trained or supervised.  The candidate will also interface with other groups at the CFFT Lab to coordinate cell supply.  She/he will work with a team of highly motivated scientists and will also be responsible for timely execution, operational excellence, and data quality. The candidate is expected to present work and progress at internal meetings.

    Job Qualifications

    • M.S. in life sciences and 5+ years of relevant experience, at least 2 years as a cell culture or cell bank manager.
    • High level of attention to details and commitment to excellence.
    • Prior work experience with primary cell isolation and bronchial epithelial cell cultures considered a very strong plus.
    • Capable of multi-tasking in a small dynamic team.
