Tissue Processing Internship

Company not shown
 Philadelphia, United States
Internship, IT/Technology, English

Job Description:

We are looking for energetic, self-starters who are interested in learning the steps to determine

the concentration of pharmaceutical agents in biospecimens. This internship will allow you to

participate directly in research assays involving animal tissue handling, assay method

development, and LC-MS/MS quantification of research grade drug candidates. We work on tight

timelines and demand the highest quality results. The right candidate will have the ability to use

their biological, chemical and analytical skills in the everyday aspects of this process. This role

will report directly to the Associate Director of Clinical Neuroscience and will be expected to

record, analyze and present experimental data to their supervisor and other scientists at LBT labs.


* Method development of various extraction / quantification assays

o Follow supervisor instruction

o Liquid-liquid extraction techniques

o Solid-phase extraction techniques

o Ability to create and follow standard operation procedures (SOPs)

o Provide organized, detailed notes for all experiments

* Use of liquid chromatography mass spectrometry system (LC-MS)

o Creation of work lists within Agilent Software

o Running standard curves of compounds for lower limit of quantification (LLOQ)


o Quantification of analyte concentrations and subsequent analysis / statistics

o Maintenance of LC-MS equipment

* Participation in group meetings

What you'll need

* Previous laboratory experience working with standard laboratory techniques like

weighing, pipetting, dilution equations, etc.

o Preference given to candidates who have worked with biospecimens before

* Ability to follow a defined workflow process while providing routine feedback

* Attention to all details along with a routine schedule is essential

* For a summer internship, a minimum of 40 hours per week should be spent in the lab

* Knowledge of basic laboratory skills (pipetting, using an analytical scale and record

keeping is expected)

* Experience with basic scientific calculations (Mass, Molarity, Dilutions, Percent

composition, etc…) is required
