Paramune is an early-stage biotechnology company, spun out of Stanford, that discovers and develops targeted antibody therapeutics for virus-associated cancers and autoimmune diseases. Its programs exploit novel mechanisms that promise best-in-class next-generation therapeutics. Paramune’s culture is open, honest, fast-paced, team-centered, and science-focused with flat hierarchies. Paramune is located in the Bay Area, less than 10 miles from the Stanford campus. Paramune is on a trajectory to grow to 10 people by the end of 2021, and to rapidly advance programs into the clinic.​

Paramune is seeking an outstanding scientist with expertise in immunology to drive discovery and pre-clinical development of novel antibody-based therapeutics. The successful candidate will help lead identification and optimization of antibody-based therapeutics for an autoimmune and infectious disease program.​

Responsibilities:

  • Design and execute experiments in cellular and molecular immunology
  • Contribute to planning and strategy for antibody drug discovery and development​

Required Experience:

  • PhD or equivalent experience in immunology
  • Immunoassays including ELISA, Western blot, flow cytometry, and antibody affinity measurement
  • Cell culture and transfection
  • Antibody expression and purification
  • B and/or T cell proliferation and other in-vitro functional assays

Desired Experience:

  • Protein engineering, in particular antibody design
  • Sequencing antibody repertoires and computational analysis of antibody repertoire datasets
  • Mouse models of autoimmunity
