Job Description


Lindy Biosciences is a development-stage company addressing formulation challenges in biotherapeutics. Our core technology produces spherical, dense, stable particles of a therapeutic protein, ideal for solid injectable formulations such as high-concentration suspensions for subcutaneous injection, which can decrease administration costs, and increase patient comfort and compliance.

The intern will be trained in Microglassification™ and will assist in developing suspension formulations. This will include conducting analytical assays on protein samples (e.g., UV-Vis, Karl Fisher titration, SEC).

We are a start-up with a small and highly motivated team. The intern will work closely with our Director of Technology Development and CEO.

This internship requires a commitment of 20 hours per week over 12 weeks, and is available starting in May.

This internship is supported in part by a grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center through the Industrial Internship Program.

Job Requirements


We are seeking candidates at an advanced undergraduate or graduate level with a background in biomedical engineering, materials science (biomaterials), pharmaceutical science, or similar field. Candidate must have lab experience, be able to work independently, and be very detailed-oriented. Must have a good understanding of experimental design. Essential lab skills include pipetting, weighing, mixing solutions, and detailed record-keeping. Candidate will assist in the lab, following established protocols, and may help develop new protocols, design experiments, and maintain lab equipment.

Experience with the following is not required, but beneficial: optical microscopy, digital imaging (ImageJ analysis), spectroscopy (UV-Vis, FTIR), protein analytical assays, enzymatic assays, rheology.
