's Mission’s mission is coding cells for health. To do so, they apply the principles of computation to biology.

What you'll be doing

  • Reporting to our Principal Scientist, the candidate will work with a team of scientists being a focal point within the wider R&D department.
  • Working under the daily supervision of a principal scientist in a team of 5 on reprogramming of iPSCs to mature liver, pancreas and related cell types.
  • Designing and executing experiments, plus analysing and reporting results.
  • Working collaboratively with the wider R&D team on the development of core technologies and effective organisation of research (equipment, reagents, workflow).
  • Executing our ambitious research programmes for the generation of all the human cell types in the dish using our unique reprogramming technology.


  • Bachelor degree in cell biology, molecular biology or similar, plus minimum 1 year of laboratory experience in a rigorous research environment in industry or academic research lab.
  • Experience with mammalian tissue culture.
  • Experience with basic molecular phenotyping of mammalian cells, including RNA/DNA extraction, RT-qPCR, immunofluorescent staining.
  • Experience with human pluripotent stem cell culture.
  • Knowledge and practical experience with stem cells or progenitors. Knowledge and practical experience with liver cells and related functional assays.

Company Values

  • Our current focus is to develop a scalable technology platform capable of producing consistent batches of every human cell. This has the potential to unlock a new generation of medicine: it will enable research and drug discovery to move on from inappropriate models and work with the cells that actually are affected by human disease. A scalable platform of consistent cells will also be the basis for a new generation of cell and tissue therapies.
  • To achieve our goals, we have assembled a team of pioneers in stem cells, cellular reprogramming, mathematical modelling, and cell therapy.
  • Collaboration is at the heart of We are empirical, highly ambitious and driven by a common purpose.
