  • Conducting and supporting experiments, independently and collaboratively, investigating novel antibody and cell-based therapeutics.
  • Assisting development and analyzing of mouse models for engineered cell therapies.
  • Supporting testing of candidate therapeutics in vivo (mouse models).
  • Construction of DNA vectors, viral vectors, and cell-lines for in vitro and in vivo studies of candidate therapeutics from the VelocImmune and VelociT pipelines.
  • Maintaining, manipulating and analyzing of mammalian cells, including primary cells, using Crispr/Cas9, transfection, and viral vectors.
  • Conducting cell based and immune assays to analyze immune cell function, including flow cytometry, ELISA/EliSpot, MSD, cytoxicity, and activation assays.
  • Careful, thorough, and prompt record keeping, data summarization, and presentation of results in formal and informal settings.
This role might be for you if:
  • You have strong organizational, time-management, and presentation skills
  • You have excellent communication skills and the ability to easily work with different groups both large and small.
