Purpose:

Oncology is a key therapeutic area for AbbVie, with a portfolio consisting of three marketed products — Imbruvica, Venclexta, and Empliciti — and a pipeline containing multiple promising new molecules that are being studied in nearly 200 clinical trials in 19 different types of cancer.  AbbVie is expanding its oncology early development pipeline.  More than 1,000 AbbVie scientists, clinicians, and product developers with strong entrepreneurial roots work across these sites. They combine their expertise in small molecules, immuno-oncology, stem cells, and cell-signaling with their knowledge of bispecific antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), and covalent-inhibitor technologies to discover and develop novel cancer treatments.  This position is located at the AbbVie site either in North Chicago, IL or Redwood City, CA.
