Anokion is seeking an experienced Scientist to join its Immunology research team and advance the cutting-edge projects that are the foci of the company’s clinical goals. This role will provide and expand our Immunology expertise in further developing our targeted, immune tolerizing therapeutics to enable successful IND filings and clinical translation.  This individual will conceptualize, design and execute pivotal in vivo and in vitro proof of concept studies in pre-clinical models of autoimmunity, and assist in the development of our research strategy.  Significant cross-functional collaboration with a talented and dedicated group of scientists including biochemists, cell biologists, immunologists, will ensure a diverse exposure to the drug discovery process.
The successful candidate will advance several aspects of Anokion’s lead molecules to support pre-clinical investigations, using their targeted skill set to accomplish the following responsibilities:
•   Design and execution of well-controlled in vivo and in vitro immunology experiments
•   In-depth characterization of cellular and humoral immune responses in various mouse models of autoimmunity and immune tolerance in general
•   Develop, execute, and trouble-shoot immunoassays, including in vitro cellular stimulations, flow cytometry, ELISA, and microscopy
•   Share and contribute scientific and technical know-how and experience with team members


•   Ph.D. in the domain of immunology, preferably with focus in autoimmunity, tolerance, or vaccines.
•   3-5 years of post-doctoral or biotech/pharma experience in developing and conducting laboratory research
•   In-depth knowledge and extensive hands-on experience in mouse models of cellular autoimmunity, primary immune cell characterization, immunoassay development, and protein chemistry
•   Proven track-record of scientific accomplishment and contributions to the field of autoimmunity or tolerance research
•   Exceptional scientific reporting and documentation proficiency
