Job Description

Making Life Even Better.

When it comes to the vision of shaping discovery and improving life, no other company can match the breadth of products and services in the life sciences field to meet this vision than Life Technologies. Created through the combination of biotechnology leaders Applied Biosystems and Invitrogen, Life Technologies’ systems, consumables and services enable researchers to accelerate scientific exploration, driving to discoveries and developments that improve the human condition and the world around us. Our customers do their work across the biological spectrum, working to advance personalized medicine, regenerative science, molecular diagnostics, agricultural and environmental research, and 21st century forensics. With historical sales of approximately $3.5 billion, a presence in more than 100 countries, and a rapidly growing intellectual property estate of over 3,600 patents and exclusive licenses, we are poised to truly shape the world of science. Join a team of more than 9,500 employees around the world who are engaged, curious, insightful, responsible and driven to make life even better.

We seek an enthusiastic student working toward an advanced degree in biology, biochemistry, or related field to prepare and analyze fluorescently labeled proteins. Previous laboratory experience in protein labeling and analysis using gel electrophoresis are a plus. Experience in working with magnetic beads for isolation, purification, or enrichment of biomolecules is preferred. The ability to write code for a liquid handling system is highly desired. After initial training, the intern will perform experiments with minimal supervision. This will include basic laboratory tasks such as preparing buffers and reagents used for protein modifications, archiving data in a laboratory notebook and basic maintenance of laboratory equipment. Strong interpersonal skills and ability to participate effectively in multidisciplinary teams are essential.

Essential Function

Responsible for preparing and analyzing fluorescently-labeled proteins and for modifying code for a liquid handling system. With some guidance, plan and execute laboratory procedures in a clinical setting, adapting or modifying experimental methods to solve problems. With some guidance, critically analyze analytical data and interpret results.


Working toward a Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD degree in Biology, Biochemistry or other related discipline. Strong “hands-on” skills in a laboratory setting are a must, as is the ability to communicate effectively with people in other disciplines. Experience in labeling proteins and gel electrophoresis are a plus but not requirements.


The candidate should have experience in a biology/biochemistry laboratory setting.
