Full time
We are seeking a creative and motivated Associate Scientist to join the Pre Therapeutic Target Discovery team. This team runs a large screening effort using genetically modified mice to identify and evaluate targets of therapeutic potential in a broad variety of therapeutic areas. This position will be responsible for designing and implementing new technologies and assays to expand the scope of the screen and will be able to further pursue novel targets identified by the screen for clinical development and/or publication.

A typical day in this role might include:
• Develop disease models and assays in order to screen targets in diverse research areas, either as part of routine screening or as follow ups in order discover therapeutic targets in diverse disease focuses. Processes should include testing and use of the most current technologies.
• Develop assays such as: models of immune challenge (inflammation and autoimmune responses), behavioral tests, tumor models for oncology and measurements and challenges of general metabolism.
• Test and establish methods to streamline database integration and automate repetitive assays and data acquisition.
• Participate in data mining efforts and accurate application of statistical analysis.
• Pursue exciting leads identified by the mouse phenotyping screen for clinical development and/or publication.

This role may be for you if you:
• Are an independent thinker excited by the idea of learning new fields and developing new technologies.
• Are comfortable working cross functionally and communicating with outside resources as the need arises.
• Have a proven ability to develop new assays or technologies to advance the understanding of biology.
• Excel at organizing and presenting data to all levels.

To be considered for this role, you must have a minimum of a PhD or MD with 0-6 years relevant postdoctoral experience. Expertise in flow cytometry, genetically modified mice and disease modeling is required, as well as experience in assay development, particularly in the fields of oncology, immune challenge models, metabolism or behavior. Experience in working with phenotyping screens in any organism would also be ideal. A successful candidate will have expert scientific knowledge in more than one organ system and/or area of disease biology and the methods of exploration of that system. Familiarity with current statistical programs is desired.
