Creative thinking and innovative engineering are needed to accelerate the development of regenerative medicine strategies and interventions to slow biological aging and repair age-related damage. At ICR, our Gene Therapy Scientists and Genetic Engineers will tackle some of the hardest challenges in aging and regenerative medicine.


With us, you'll get to:

  • Contribute novel and practical ideas to ICR’s AAV-mediated gene therapy research program, including applications involving AAV-CRISPR technologies and NGS technology platforms
  • Design genetically engineered cell-based interventions for multiple age-related diseases and regenerative medicine projects
  • Evaluate candidate genes for age-reversal and prevention of age-related diseases
  • Test various modification paradigms to improve targeting and efficiency of AAV-mediated gene delivery


Please apply if you have:

  • A PhD or another advanced degree in biomedical science with several years of experience in gene therapy research and applications
  • Advanced experience with all aspects of AAV-mediated gene therapy research
  • Expert knowledge in experimental therapeutics and the therapeutic development landscape for AAV, including gene and cellular therapy applications for muscle regeneration, vascular endothelial rejuvenation and other tissue/organ-specific regeneration paradigms


Ideally, you'll also have:

  • General and working knowledge of aging biology, disease of human aging, and regenerative and personalized medicine


And you'll need:

  • A friendly, easygoing personality
  • The ability to work in the United States without sponsorship
