Description

We are seeking a skilled molecular biologist/immunologist/biochemist at the Scientist level to work on a variety of cutting edge project in immune-oncology field. The candidate will be expected to help progressing our pipeline by generating cell-lines, developing assays, protein/peptide antigens, and helping in mechanistic understanding of various IO targets.

Responsibilities
  • Apply molecular and cell biology techniques to design and generate transient and stable cell-lines using various techniques including lentiviral transduction and CRISPR
  • Utilize expertise in biochemistry to design and generate functional cell-based assays to support biology, antibody generation, and mechanistic studies
  • Working knowledge of protein chemistry to assist in design and generation of protein/peptide antigens.
  • Identify and implement methodologies to enhance cell-line, antigen, and assay functionalities.
  • Working at the interface between protein engineering and biology
  • Immunology background is a plus
  • Accomplish goals under project team time lines.


Qualifications
  • Ph.D. and postdoctoral work with 2 years experience in Molecular & Cell Biology, Immunology, Biochemistry or similar field
  • Experience in cell-line generation for immunizations and functional assays.
  • CRISPR and lentivirus experience highly desirable
  • Experience in generation of protein antigens is highly desired but not required.
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a multidisciplinary biologics discovery team
  • Excellent written, oral, and organizational skills
