Associate Product Development Scientist

Photon Biosciences

Spokane, Washington

At Photon Biosciences we are building a dynamic work environment that brings together the best talent from biophysics, molecular & cell biology and business. Our culture is collaborative and inclusive. We embrace intellectual curiosity and encourage creative thinking to solve tough, real world problems.

Our core technology is a new ultrasensitive detection platform that combines bioengineered proteins with a unique in vivo biomineralization process that results in a number of different genetically expressible luminescent bionanoparticles that are non-bleaching and non-blinking with luminescence intensities that rivals and surpasses many fluorescent organic molecules. The excitation and emission wavelengths of these expressible bionanoparticles can be tuned with the composition of the mineralization process and span much of the visible and near infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Because of its unique photophysical properties, PBS® has been developed into new ultrasensitive probes for biomolecular research, detection technologies, and cellular imaging.

Originally formed as a Washington State University start-up, Photon Biosciences, LLC has received Phase I funding from the National Institutes of Health SBIR program (NIGMS SBIR) and a GAP grant from the Washington Research Foundation and Health Sciences and Services Authority (HSSA) of Spokane County to develop our core technologies and commercialize a variety of product lines for the biomedical research community and biotechnology use.

We offer competitive salaries, great benefits, and a one-of-a-kind environment that is both fun and intellectually challenging.
