Job Description


Seattle Genetics is building a world-class immune oncology team and is seeking a highly motivated and innovative scientist with significant experience in immunology to join our team.  In particular we are seeking an individual who has a high level of competency studying the innate arm of the immune system in order to help further develop our innovative pipeline.  The successful candidate will be a scientific innovator who drives scientific excellence and rigor, to develop and advance cutting-edge therapeutics from concept to clinical testing.


  • Specifically, the candidate will need to identify unique tumor-specific micro-environmental cues that impact immune cell infiltrate function, differentiation and trafficking using a variety of tools including molecular, cellular, and biochemical techniques, as well as, systems immunology, and bioinformatics
  • The qualified candidate will be a creative individual that possesses substantial in vitro and in vivo experience studying the biology of both human and murine innate immune cells, preferably in the context of the tumor environment
  • The position requires experience with a breadth of human/mouse immunological assays and datasets including flow cytometry, ELISA, IHC, genomics and functional assays
  • The candidate should be able to work independently, and demonstrate the ability to contribute to projects outside their own. They will keep up-to-date in the literature related to their area of expertise and act as an expert resource within the immunology and research team



  • A Ph.D degree and 3+ years post-doctoral experience in cellular and/or tumor immunology with a focus on the innate immune system
  • A proven track record in the field of immunology/tumor immunology, as evidenced by a robust publication record
  • Extensive experience with primary immune cells of rodent and/or human origin as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the basics of innate immunology
  • Proficiency in multi-color flow cytometry is essential
  • Demonstrated experience independently designing and executing in vitro and in vivo experiments focused on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that modulate the innate immune response against foreign or tumor-associated antigens
  • Demonstrated creativity and novel approaches to solving scientific problems
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to interact effectively with people, internally and externally. Excellent oral and written communication
  • Industry experience desired but not required
