Full time

At Bristol Myers Squibb, we are inspired by a single vision – transforming patients’ lives through science. In oncology, hematology, immunology and cardiovascular disease – and one of the most diverse and promising pipelines in the industry – each of our passionate colleagues contribute to innovations that drive meaningful change. We bring a human touch to every treatment we pioneer. Join us and make a difference.

Position Summary

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the Cancer Biology research team within the Tumor Microenvironment Thematic Research Center (TME TRC) at Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) in Redwood City, CA. This team is composed of cancer biologists/cancer geneticists who work closely with immunologists/immuno-oncologists and stroma biologists focused on developing therapeutic targets integrated across the tumor microenvironment. Our mission is to provide transformative therapeutics to cancer patients that improve response rates and durability to this challenging disease.

Key Responsibilities

The qualified candidate is a highly motivated, interactive, and creative individual who possesses substantial experience in studying tumor biology, tumor genetics and interaction of cancer cell with immune microevironment.

The postdoctoral candidate will utilize cutting edge genomic technologies to further our understanding of cancer cell intrisic mechanisms important for immune evasion.

The candidate is required to design and execute decision driving experimental and strategic plans to advance the project. The candidate is also expected to present scientific results to multidisciplinary teams, senior management and at external scientific meetings.

Qualifications & Experience

  • A recent Ph.D. degree in the field of Cancer Biology, Molecular Biology or related fields
  • Hands on experience in the design, validation, and execution of genetic and/or phenotypic screens. 
  • Hands on experience with a wide range of in-vitro cellular and biochemical assays, including cell culture, western blotting, immunoprecipitation, ELISAs (MSD), FACS, reporter assays, siRNA/shRNA knockdown, CRISPR-mediated genome editing, qPCR, cloning, lentivirus generation and transduction.
  • Ability to effectively interact with core bioinformatics colleagues, as well as to use desktop tools/interfaces (e.g., Oncoland, Wuxi) and public databases (CBIO, Achilles, etc.) is required.
  • A proven track record in the field of cancer biology and genetics, as evidenced by one or more first authored publication in a well-recognized journal record.
  • The candidate must possess proficiency in verbal and written communication, capable of presenting scientific results to multidisciplinary teams, senior management and at external scientific meetings.

Around the world, we are passionate about making an impact on the lives of patients with serious diseases. Empowered to apply our individual talents and diverse perspectives in an inclusive culture, our shared values of passion, innovation, urgency, accountability, inclusion and integrity bring out the highest potential of each of our colleagues.

Bristol Myers Squibb recognizes the importance of balance and flexibility in our work environment. We offer a wide variety of competitive benefits, services and programs that provide our employees with the resources to pursue their goals, both at work and in their personal lives.
