Job Description

Atreca seeks a highly motivated, research-oriented physician to play a leading role in our immuno-oncology clinical research. In this role you will work with cross-functional teams to plan, execute and interpret studies of the immune responses of cancer patients. These studies will initially focus on understanding anti-tumor immune responses and identifying the antibodies, T cell receptors and other factors that contribute to good clinical outcomes. As our therapeutic programs advance you will also contribute to the pre-clinical and clinical development of novel immunotherapeutics. You will help define clinical priorities, build collaborative relationships with partners, and coordinate study execution. Your knowledge of oncology and cancer care will inform our research priorities and therapeutic programs. Your experience in clinical practice and clinical studies will enable you to rapidly establish programs that both address scientific goals and ensure patient protections. Your interpersonal skills and knowledge will enable you to build productive relationships with leading researchers in the field, both in academia and industry. Your work will accelerate our understanding of cancer and enable the development of novel immunotherapeutics.

Atreca is looking for talented and entrepreneurial people who want to be part of a progressive team and see their work have a positive impact on human health. This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated individual to become a key member of a fast-growing biotechnology company. Exact title will be commensurate with experience.
