CLOSED. Laboratory Assistant – Internship

About the Company

 Nanotein Technologies is an investor-backed Bay Area startup biotech (Berkeley based) that is using its proprietary protein-based platform technology to innovate the next-generation of cell therapy (e.g., CAR-T, CAR-NK, TCR-T, etc.) bio-manufacturing reagents.

Our cutting-edge technology allows us to make cancer cell therapies that are more effective and last longer than the current state-of-the-art; driving the best possible outcomes for everyday cancer patients.

We are a well-funded, seed stage organization, with exciting commercial partnerships in place. We are rapidly approaching the launch of our first product, with plans to quickly develop and launch more.

 The Opportunity

 Nanotein is looking for an intern to join our growing team. While the position will start during the summer (full or part-time, depending on candidate preference), if it’s a good fit, the intern would ideally be open to continuing during the school year (on a part-time basis). Therefore, a local candidate is ideal.

In the intern role you will help company scientists and its founders with lab tasks, experiments and general upkeep (e.g. culturing T cells, running functional assays, autoclaving glassware etc.). This is a perfect role for a local university student, looking to bolster their CV and gain exposure to a particularly hot and rapidly growing area within biotech (i.e. cell therapies used to treat cancers).


 Successful hire has biology training, typically equivalent to:


  • Current student in a 4-year university program or is a recent graduate of or is about to graduate from a 2-year associates degree in the biological sciences, chemistry or related discipline.


  • Detail oriented, diligent, and a can-do attitude.
  • Training will be provided, but candidates are expected to be able to work independently (with appropriate guidance, direction, and input from company scientists).

Nanotein proudly considers all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, genetic information or veteran status. We encourage all qualified applicants to apply!

Candidates must possess legal authorization to work in the US.
