Scientist (Immunology - Infectious Disease)
The Infectious Disease group is seeking a Scientist to join a team focusing on developing novel antibody-based therapies for infectious diseases, with an
emphasis on bacterial pathogens. Specifically, the candidate will support
several projects focused on development of novel therapeutics and technology platforms targeting pathogen and host factors associated with bacterial infections, with the ultimate goal of bringing novel drugs into the clinic. This is a lab-based, hands-on position and is a phenomenal opportunity for the right
candidate to grow their expertise and learn many facets of drug development in a fast-paced, challenging environment. We are looking for someone who can work both independently and with a team of researchers and clinicians across the organization to identify novel therapeutic targets and develop innovative strategies to combat bacterial infections.
As a Scientist in the Infectious Disease team, a typical day may include the following:
- Participate in discussions with research and clinical colleagues to identifying novel therapeutic targets
- Investigate new technologies, independently and collaboratively, and
implement these innovative approaches to combat infectious diseases
- Independently design and perform a variety of in vitro/ex vivo cell-based
- Independently plan and execute in vivo studies to assess therapeutic
candidates in mouse models of infection, with emphasis on bacterial infection models
- Document experimental procedures and results in a well-organized fashion
- Independently analyze results, create presentations, clearly present data and actively participate in meetings
- Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams across the company
- Mentor junior colleagues and supervise an RA level direct report
This role may be for you if:
- You possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills, as this
candidate will be expected to work productively in a collaborative,
cross-functional team environment
- You are able to independently design and perform in vivo efficacy studies,
develop novel methodology, as well as train and mentor junior colleagues
To be considered for this role, you must have a PhD + 3 years of post-doctoral or industry experience. Understanding and previous experience in immunology and bacteriology would be distinct advantages. Proven experience with
molecular biology techniques (cloning, PCR, etc.) is required. Experience with ELISA, cell culture, and other standard immunological assays is required. We need a candidate who is comfortable handling mice specifically working with mouse models of infection. We are searching for an individual who has a strong background in one or more areas of immunology, molecular biology and/or microbiology. The successful candidate will be ideally skilled in in vivo, ex vivo, and in vitro techniques, including molecular biology techniques such as cloning.
