Full Time Employee

InterVenn Biosciences is seeking a Sr. Research Associate to join our highly collaborative and supportive biomarker discovery team. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and resourceful individual with a robust track record of experience in the field of mass spectrometry- based proteomics and glycoproteomics, . Their work will enable qualitative and quantitative epi-proteomics workflow development for innovative biomarker discovery.


We are not married to specific tools, technologies, or shiny objects. We ask questions until we arrive at the best answer to the patient. We believe glycoproteins are a new language of biology we are translating for the benefit of patients, researchers, science, and medicine. We have diverse backgrounds and experiences, skeptical about the status quo yet solution-oriented. If this sounds like a good fit, read on.




    •         Conduct experiments for the development of sample preparation and peptide separation methods,  glycoproteomic
