Job Details


Adicet Bio, Inc. is a clinical stage biotechnology company discovering and developing allogeneic gamma delta T cell therapies for cancer. Adicet is advancing a pipeline of “off-the-shelf” gamma delta T cells, engineered with chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) and adaptors (CAds), to enhance selective tumor targeting and facilitate innate and adaptive anti-tumor immune response for durable activity in patients.  For more information, please visit our website at


We are seeking a highly motivated Scientist / Senior Scientist with a strong background in cell engineering and T cell biology to join our iPSC and Cell Engineering Team. The successful candidate will be part of a cross-disciplinary team responsible for exploring novel pursuits across the iPSC and Cell Engineering landscape. Focused activities will include generation of iPSC clones, gene editing, differentiation and characterization of immune effector gamma delta T cells. In addition, the successful candidate will be responsible for integration and rigorous characterization of novel cell engineering technologies to enhance gamma delta T cell effector functions.

Key responsibilities:
  • Independently plan, propose and execute studies to knock in and knock out CARs and target genes using non-viral approaches.
  • Experience in iPSC reprogramming, cell culture, clone selection, sequencing and banking.
  • Optimize methods for iPSC differentiation into functional HSCs and T cells.
  • Develop and establish assays to characterize the molecular and functional phenotype of iPSC- derived T cells.
  • Investigate novel cell engineering technologies to functionally enhance the efficacy of gamma delta T cells.
  • Analyze and interpret experimental data and summarize key findings to drive critical decision making.
  • Collaborate across functional groups, manage multiple projects while adhering to timelines.
  • Ph.D. in Immunology, tumor Immunology, genetics, stem cells or related field with a minimum of 3+ years of post-doctoral or industry experience.
  • Strong background in T cell biology including differentiation, activation pathways, and effector mechanisms.
  • Experience with viral and non-viral gene editing techniques in primary T and NK cells.
  • Expertise with molecular and functional phenotype assays to characterize T and NK cells including, but not limited to, PCR/qPCR/ddPCR, RNA-Seq, multiparameter flow cytometry, cytokine release assays, and cytotoxicity assays.
  • Excellent interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills.
  • Self-motivated, innovative mindset, and focused; able to collaborate with colleagues to accomplish project goals.

We offer a competitive compensation package including base salary, annual cash bonus, long-term incentives (equity), Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) and a 401(k) with ROTH and a 4.5% Company match.

To ensure the wellness of our employees and their loved ones, we offer comprehensive health plans (medical, dental, vision, etc.), Flexible Health and Commuter Spending Accounts (FSA) and a company matched Health Savings Account (HSA). We also offer a life, AD&D, short and long-term disability insurance, and legal, pet, and various other voluntary insurance programs.

We also believe our greatest ideas come when we are refreshed and focused, and we offer generous paid time-off including 12 company holidays with end-of-year shutdown, vacation, sick time, and paid parental leave.


Pay Range$115,000—$159,000 USD

At Adicet, our people are our greatest focus. We believe that attracting and retaining the best and brightest is the key to achieving our mission to deliver best-in-class gamma delta T cell therapies for patients fighting cancer.

Adicet is located in a state-of-the-art facility and works to create an incredible office experience with an onsite gym and various other fitness options, abundant, zero-cost, onsite parking with electric vehicle charging stations and free shuttle (Caltrain), company subsidized lunches (delivered onsite daily) and fully stocked breakrooms.

In compliance with California’s pay transparency law and in pursuit of pay equity and fairness, we publish salary ranges for all open positions. The salary of the finalist selected for this role will be set based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to, their qualifications (education, experience, specialty, and training), and peer and market data. This listed salary range represents the Company’s good faith and reasonable estimate of the range of possible compensation at the time of posting.


Adicet Bio, Inc. is a privately held, pre-clinical stage biotechnology company developing novel universal immune cell therapies based on gamma delta T cells engineered with Chimeric Antigen Receptors.  Adicet is also focused on identifying and validating cancer specific targets directed to the intracellular proteome and then generating T Cell Receptor-like monoclonal antibodies (TCRLs) directed to these cancer-specific peptide targets presented by MHC Class I complexes. These TCRLs are being used to arm T cells or as T cell engagers in solid tumors. In August 2016, Adicet entered into a strategic collaboration with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to develop next-generation engineered immune-cell therapeutics using Adicet's gamma delta T cell allogeneic platform technology.
