To meet the expanding needs in our drug development programs, Seattle Genetics is seeking a highly motivated and innovative scientist at the senior or principal scientist level to lead our immunology research efforts. The successful candidate will focus on exploiting the functions of the immune system in the treatment of cancer.
• Implement in vitro and in vivo experimental systems to assess the therapeutic potential of agents that target the innate or adaptive arms of the immune system in antitumor immune response.
• Develop methods to examine the effects of our experimental drugs on the functions of the immune system in cancer patients.
• Investigate the tumor microenvironment and impact of our ADCs on the immune cells
• Identify and evaluate new immune-modulatory agents for treating cancer and advance them through development decision points.
• A Ph.D. in immunology or tumor immunology with 3+ years of postdoctoral experience.
• Demonstrated proficiency in utilizing in vitro and in vivo approaches to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms that modulate adaptive immune response against foreign or tumor-associated antigens.
• Hands-on experience in tumor immunology and/or applying biologics to interfere with immune response to antigenic challenge is a plus.
• Excellent skills in written and oral communication, organization and multitasking, and working in a collaborative and cross-functional research environment.
• A strong publication record.
