Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer. Ginkgo is constructing, editing, & redesigning the living world to answer global challenges in health, energy, food, materials, & more. Ginkgo bioengineers make use of an in-house automated foundry for designing & building new organisms.
The Protein Engineering Team works to address the complex challenges of enzyme discovery, characterization, & engineering. We utilize state-of-the-art bioinformatics to discover novel enzymes & employ a growing suite of computational protein design tools for rationally designing improvements.
As a Computational Protein Engineer, you will contribute to the development of an in silico platform for rational design & apply state-of-art computational technologies to address the complex challenge of enzyme engineering. You will support Ginkgo's ultra high-throughput protein engineering pipelines by building software to design & analyze large experimental datasets. In addition, you will have access to the Ginkgo platform & resulting large datasets for generating & testing hypotheses using deep learning approaches.
We are looking for someone who is excited about the promise of synthetic biology & the premier role of biomolecular engineering in biology by design. If you sleep not only to maintain healthy levels of protein in the brain, but also dream of harnessing the power of deep learning to design enzymes & other proteins, then you are at the right place.
