Develop proprietary gene transfer technology including: prototype
design/evaluation, definition of technological optimums, assessment of
stable gene integration and expression, assessment of technical utility of
system for gene delivery vehicles and various target cells/tissues,
ultimate development of product configurations for research and clinical
embodiments of the technology. 

-Primary Duties: Design and conduct experiments to optimize technologies.
Maintain and produce regular supplies of gene carriers for
experimentation. Assess transduction efficiency in target cell populations
by reporter systems and molecular biology techniques. Define research and
clinical applications for gene transfer/gene therapy.Write reports
detailing experimental results and describing the technical significance
of the results. Participate in multi-functional program team to develop
prototypes for the gene transfer technology. Assist in the assessment of
gene transfer to stem/progenitor cells. Interface and train scientists in
the use of the technology. Extend demonstrated utility of technology and
participate in filing patents.

-Secondary Duties: Represent the company to external scientists and
investors. Present data at internal seminars. Maintain a laboratory
notebook and records in compliance with GLP requirements and company SOPs.

-Required Experience:
2+ years in gene transfer experimentation. Thorough knowledge of gene
carrier/delivery systems, including retoviruses, adenovirus,
