Scientific Researcher, Oncology Cellular Therapies
The Department of Cancer Immunology has an opening for a highly motivated Scientific Researcher to join our cross-functional Cell Therapy Group in the Research and Early Development organization and advance our efforts in developing T cell-receptor engineered autologous cell therapies. Cell therapies hold great promise to be transformational in the treatment of a variety of cancer indications. We are developing cutting-edge personalized T cell-receptor engineered autologous and allogeneic therapies targeting neoantigens for the treatment of solid tumors.
As part of a dynamic, supportive team, the successful candidate will be responsible for the generation of high-quality human engineered T cells for research activities to advance our cell therapy efforts. The role may also involve the development and optimization of protocols related to cell purification, engineering, expansion, cryopreservation, and characterization. The ideal candidate will have strong organizational, documentation, and communication skills.
Who you are:
- BS or MS degree with 2+ years of hands-on lab experience is preferred
- Excellent teamwork, communication, time management, and organizational skills are required.
- Experience with processing human blood and primary cell isolation and cell culture is a plus.
- Experience with multi-color flow cytometry is strongly preferred.
