Associate Manufacturing Engineer, Genome Engineering
Location: Emeryville, CA, USA
At Zymergen, our mission is to deliver high performance cell lines that underpin a new wave of bio-based products. We deliver through deep scientific understanding combined with advanced automation, software, and biological technologies. We drive improvement in our processes through gaining efficiencies where we can, generating and integrating technological breakthroughs, and assimilating innovation from outside the company.
We are looking for a highly driven process engineer to help build out our platform for engineering microbes. This is an opportunity to drive future technology development activities by adapting best known methods from process engineering to biological workflows. We will look to you to participate in efforts to build out infrastructure for data tracking, process execution and process monitoring. You will work immersively and collaboratively in a team where R&D in service of engineering and evaluating microbes converts over to process metrics and KPIs.
If you have a strong background and interest in applying Manufacturing Engineering principles to support the development of cutting edge technology in an emerging field, come join us!

Gordian is a gene therapy company developing therapeutics for diseases of aging. Our discovery platform allows us to simultaneously screen thousands of therapeutics in a single animal model of disease. This lets us validate the therapeutic efficacy of thousands of targets, in the most realistic disease environment, all from the beginning of discovery. We can thus focus therapeutic development on the best, novel targets for these complex diseases.
We are based in San Francisco, and are looking for exceptional research associates to help keep the core engine of the company running. They will work closely with the Gordian team and manage core components of our molecular biology and/or animal workflows, depending on their area of experience. This includes 2-3 of the following: NGS library preparation, plasmid cloning and production, cell culture, and mouse colony maintenance and experimentation.

The College of Engineering would like to do all we can to lower barriers to student success brought on by the COVID-19 crisis. To this end, the college established the COE Student Emergency Needs Fund to assist COE undergraduate and graduate engineering students encountering sudden, unexpected financial hardships.
COE Undergraduate students: Emergency needs application: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScpYm075AlFm_ZF-7Yarkc5-y8l7_N6KjTuPU6Nckx4VnJrwQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
COE Graduate students: Emergency needs application: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScKRsnMPA0UEK6oN0iFXymdHbzHd_qMgpDDlGO4aR8CUDolIw/viewform
Cases will be evaluated we will prioritize requests from students who have exhausted all other resources including loans. Filling out this emergency funding application does not guarantee funding. If you are granted funding, documentation may be required for financial aid records. Undergraduate students will receive a response within seven days. Please note it could take longer to receive funding.
There are a number of resources on campus to help:
Berkeley Basic Needs: The Basic Needs Holistic Support Application is designed to provide short-term emergency financial support for needs that can not be met by other financial resources including Basic Needs Center (BNC) and FASO services. Students who have emergency needs and limited financial resources will be prioritized. Students may apply for short-term emergency support across: 1) rental assistance; 2) food assistance; and 3) housing security deposit
Short Term Emergency Loans: The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office offers short-term emergency loans to graduate and undergraduate students. These interest-free loans are designed to help students meet unanticipated expenses directly related to the cost of education.
Technology Access Program: If you are a UCB graduate, professional, or undergraduate student without the resources you need to engage in the online environment, please complete an application for a free loan of hardware from the Student Technology Equity Program (STEP)
