Cell Culture Research Associate

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of said data. Here at Tempus, we believe the greatest promise for the detection and treatment of cancer lies in the deep understanding of molecular activity for disease initiation, progression, and efficacious treatment based on the discovery of unique biomarkers.

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We're looking to build a laboratory operations team who are passionate and focused on developing state of the art techniques to processing and creating and interpreting vast amounts of genomic and molecular data from patients and from biological models. While developing and screening organoid models directly from patient tumor samples, scientists will collaborate with product, research, and business development teams to develop the most advanced sequencing platform in cancer care.

What you’ll do:

  • Work with a cutting-edge biological modeling and organoid screening workflow to provide high-quality cellular analyses and drug screening data
  • Receive and process patient tumor samples for our patient-specific biological modeling
  • Grow and maintain tumor organoids for drug screenings
  • Cryopreserve tumor organoids to create the most comprehensive organoid biobank
  • Maintain quality metrics and data generation for organoid growth and analysis platforms
  • Collaborate in the day-to- day cell culture lab operations

Must have:

  • MS in medical technology, clinical laboratory science, chemical, physical or biological science and experience with cell culture and molecular biology


  • BS in medical technology, clinical laboratory science, chemical, physical or biological science and 2 years of experience in cell culture and molecular biology
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Outstanding cell culture aseptic technique
  • Thrives in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to work with others to plan and carry out scientific programs
  • Self-driven and works well in an interdisciplinary team with minimal direction
  • Strong desire to build products that will save lives and change the course of cancer
  • Impeccable attention to detail

Highly Desirable:

  • Experience with tissue processing and dissociation techniques
  • Experience with tumor organoid growth and development
  • Experience handling large amounts of cell culture plates
