Job Description

Field Applications Scientist, US East Coast


Labcyte seeks an energetic scientist to join our FAS team.  This is primarily a customer-facing role in which you will work with scientists to understand their application requirements and help to adapt their workflows to the unique capabilities of the Echo® liquid handler.  Our Field Applications Scientists work closely with sales staff to provide high-level customer support before, during, and after a sale.


Our Echo® liquid handling systems use sound energy (non-contact dispensing) to rapidly transfer liquids with unmatched precision and accuracy. Our innovative instruments are used worldwide in multiple disciplines including cancer research, genomics, proteomics, personalized medicine, drug discovery, and mass spectrometry.


Therefore, we need someone who has bench experience and market knowledge of genomics workflows, including NGS and synthetic biology, but is also ready to expand their horizons and tackle the next challenge as we enable scientists to work at smaller volumes with greater precision.  We also need strong written and verbal communication skills to present the advantages of our product portfolio to scientifically diverse teams and customers.


Job Responsibilities:


  • Application support across multiple scientific disciplines including genomics and drug discovery
  • Conduct pre-sales technical presentations and understand customer workflows
  • Plan and execute product demonstrations for prospective customers
  • Prepare and present seminars and posters at conferences
  • Develop new applications through industrial and academic collaborations
  • Provide customer training and support; maintain positive customer relations
  • Troubleshoot technical problems and serve as a liaison with internal escalation teams as needed
  • Assist in technical training for sales and support personnel
  • Overnight travel up to 60% when required


Education, Skills and Experience Requirements:


●    Requires an advanced degree in a scientific discipline, preferably genomics, molecular biology, or          similar, and five (5) or more years of related experience.

  • Experience with several scientific applications such as next-generation sequencing, synthetic biology, single cell workflows, high-throughput screening, cell-based assays, biochemical assays, and mass spectrometry
  • Knowledge of liquid handling, automation, and robotic laboratory equipment desirable
  • Excellent interpersonal, written, and verbal communication and presentation skills are required
  • Experience teaching or training
  • Prior experience in a customer-facing role is strongly desired


Location: Field position based on the east coast of the US, with preference for the greater NY/NJ area.

About Our Organization

Labcyte Inc. is the leader in low-volume liquid handling for the life sciences. We use acoustic droplet ejection to provide highly accurate, fully automated, non-contact dispensing.  The ‘touchless’ technology in the Echo® liquid handlers provides dramatically better data by eliminating pipette tips and the adsorption of compounds during transfer, while saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in decreased consumables. Accuracy is maintained from first drop through last for a wide variety of fluids, including many that present substantial challenges when using other methods.  Labcyte’s Echo liquid handlers are used in all of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies, as well as in leading academic and research institutions worldwide. Applications include compound management, genomics, proteomics, particle manufacturing, encapsulation, imaging mass spectrometry, and live-cell transfer.
