Agilent Research Laboratories, which powers the growth of Agilent Technologies through breakthrough science and technology, has a new opening for a Research Scientist with deep expertise in physical biochemistry including kinetics, thermodynamics, enzymology, and molecular structure-function studies to solve problems related to the measurement and analysis of biological systems.  You will join an innovative, multidisciplinary team developing state-of-the-art technologies for advancing Agilent’s current and future measurement solutions and their use in life sciences and clinical research. For example, the candidate will work as part of a team to invent and develop new chemistries and reagents for advancing state of the art DNA and RNA oligonucleotide synthesis, invent and develop new methods for analytics of biomolecules, and extend and develop new technologies for using these technologies for the manipulation and measurement of biological systems. The candidate will also participate in establishing strategic collaborations between Agilent Labs and external researchers to validate and proliferate these novel technologies, communicate progress and results to management and technical leadership, to selected external organizations, and when appropriate, to the general scientific community via presentations at scientific conferences and peer-reviewed publications.


Agilent Research Labs looks beyond the evolution of current products and platforms to create the technologies that will underlie tomorrow's breakthroughs, enabling Agilent customers to answer questions at the leading edge across the continuum of opportunities spanning life science research to clinical and applied chemical markets.   Our horizon is broad, encompassing synergies across Agilent, paving the way for existing businesses and seeding new businesses to create competitive differentiation and compelling value for current and future customers. To accomplish these goals, we attract and retain top technical talent, collaborate with global research leaders in academia, government, and industry, and promote a culture of innovation and teamwork across our highly multi-disciplinary staff of life scientists, physical scientists, computer scientists and engineers.
