Full time
Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

We are seeking a talented scientist to join our neuroscience research group. This individual should have a background in the pathophysiology of peripheral neuropathy (e.g. toxin-induced neuropathies, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy). A background in the biology of neurotrophins and neuronal growth factors is also desired. The successful candidate will be responsible for hands-on research studies designed to investigate novel targets and mechanisms in peripheral nervous system dysfunction. The ideal candidate will be a motivated, self-starter that thrives in a fast pace, team environment.

This candidate will work within a multidisciplinary group to design and execute a broad range of neuroscience experiments using cell-based approaches and animal models. This candidate should have expertise with basic cell culture and molecular biology techniques (cloning, plasmid generation, etc.). Experience with cellular and molecular techniques for gene editing (CRISPR, shRNA, etc.) or neuronal cell-based assay development is also preferred. The candidate should be flexible and open to learning cutting edge new techniques as needed. Also, this candidate should demonstrate the desire to share and assist others on the team using their areas of expertise. The candidate will be responsible for the reporting of results to a broad range of audiences and a high level of presentation and communication skills are required.
This role requires a minimum of a Bachelors Degree and 1-2 years of applied research in a recognized neurobiology research lab (undergraduate research or master's degree with thesis research acceptable). Research experience should include:

Cell biology techniques (cloning and development of cell-based assays).

Knowledge of the biology of peripheral neuropathies and strategies for neuroprotection.

Must have working knowledge of experimental design and statistical analysis.

This position will require the individual to pass a physical before beginning employment.

This is an opportunity to join our select team that is already leading the way in the Pharmaceutical/Biotech industry. Apply today and learn more about Regeneron's unwavering commitment to combining good science & good business.
