is a leader in automated dispensing and analysis of C. elegans,
Drosophila melanogaster, and Danio rerio. Our first product for C.
elegans research, the COPAS nematode sorter and dispenser, was
released in January 1999. Since then, we have introduced a
fluorescence-based instrument and a more sophisticated high-speed
analytical device to the market. Why wait? Join our team of
scientists and engineers as we develop fluorescence based
instrumentation and associated in vivo assays.

This position entails the development of an extensive line of disease
model organisms adapted to the COPAS Technology Platform that can be
used in all aspects of drug discovery as well as basic biomedical
We are looking for an energetic and focused scientist (with at least

elegans genetics and molecular biology. Experience appropriate to the
project would include familiarity with standard mutant phenotypes,
carrying out genetic crosses, establishing transgenic strains, gene
inactivation by RNAi, and use of fluorescent reporters and microscopy
skills. Interest in cutting edge instrumentation is required.
We offer highly competitive salaries and a broad benefits plan that
includes free medical insurance and a company-matched pension plan.
