Amgen Postdoctoral Fellow - Cell Line Development/Nanoscale Cell Culture Analytics in Thousand Oaks, California
The Amgen Postdoctoral Program is committed to providing future scientists with an enriched environment to inspire innovation that will contribute to the development of human therapeutics.
The Cell Line Development group is responsible for the generation of highly productive manufacturing cell lines for Amgen's rich and diverse large molecule pipeline.
We are currently employing next generation nanoscale fluidic devices to miniaturize Cell Line Development processes. This novel technology enables simultaneous isolation, culturing and analysis of thousands of clonal cells lines.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will utilize their biochemistry and immunoassay expertise and work cross functionally with groups across Amgen to develop new high throughput, nanoscale assays to enable characterization of thousands of production cells lines for cell culture performance, protein production and product quality attributes relevant to Amgen's large molecule pipeline.
The assignment length is expected to be 3 years long.
