We are seeking an organic chemist to further the development of synthetic materials for our DNA sequencing program. This individual will be expected to contribute in a diverse research environment covering areas such as preparation of analogs for single molecule sequencing, photophysics of organic fluorophores, DNA purification technology, nucleotide chemistry, surface and polymer chemistry. We are looking for an individual with skills complementary to the extensive organic synthetic, fluorescent dye, and nucleotide chemistry capability currently at Pacific Biosciences.
• Synthesis of compounds to further single molecule research and development
• Provide chemistry support to biochemistry, surface chemistry, and other groups which employ chemistry
• Perform experiments in collaboration with analytical chemists and biochemists
