Job Details

Pushing the frontier of solid cancer therapy, Neogene Therapeutics is a global, clinical stage biotechnology company built on the premise of innovation and novel paradigm-changing science. Using tumor mutation profiles to engineer fully individualized T cell therapies, Neogene is bringing new hope to address the current limitations of treatments available today.

We offer the opportunity to join a highly dynamic biotech with locations in Amsterdam, Netherlands and in Santa Monica, CA. You can expect a collaborative environment created by a team with deep scientific expertise and an industrial track-record in T cell therapies.

Neogene values pro-active team-players who pursue their goals with dedication, endurance, and a daring mindset. If you share our commitment to make a difference to patients in need, we can provide an exciting opportunity for your career.

Job Summary:

As a Research Associate at Neogene, your primary responsibility is to conduct laboratory-based assays aiming to identify and select patient-derived neo-antigen specific TCRs. Additionally, you will be involved in characterizing and quality checking TCR-related products intended for clinical use. Your duties will include ensuring the accurate and reliable preparation and execution of assays, documenting the process and data meticulously, and maintaining the laboratory space and equipment relevant to your work. This position is located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and you will report to an Associate Scientist, Molecular Biology.

 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Perform laboratory processes to select and characterize patient-derived neo-antigen specific TCRs.
  • Conduct quality assays on TCRs, T cells, B cells, TCR-related products, and raw materials.
  • Execute aseptic handling and genetic modification of immune cells, and perform phenotypic and functional evaluation of immune cells by flow cytometry.
  • Execute techniques such as DNA/RNA isolation, DNA/RNA quality assessment, molecular and cellular biology and cloning techniques, Illumina sequencing, single-cell sequencing, flow cytometry and AutoMACs based cell sorting.
  • Work in compliance with standards set out by relevant accredited agencies.
  • Collaborate in a cross-functional team to identify, validate, and implement process improvements.
  • Document results in electronic and paper-based laboratory journals and document management systems, adhering to standards set by appropriate accredited agencies.
  • Write and revise protocols and SOPs.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

 

Education and Experience:

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in a relevant scientific field (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, biomedical sciences).
  • 1-2 years of full-time laboratory experience
  • Knowledge and experience with molecular and/or cellular biology methods, next-gen sequencing, isolation and aseptic handling of primary cells and cell lines.
  • Experience in gene modification technologies (e.g. retroviral transductions), immunological assays, cell sorting and flow cytometry is a plus.
  • Preference for candidates with experience in T cell immunology, genetic screening, or cancer biology.

 

Required Skills/Abilities:

  • Strong analytical skills, diligent and systematic working attitude, independent thinking, and open to challenges.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English.
  • Ability to work effectively in a team.
  • Excellent organizational, communication, and problem-solving skills.
  • Comfortable in a fast-paced growing company environment and able to adjust workload based on changing priorities.

Company

Neogene Therapeutics is a global, preclinical stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of next generation, fully individualized engineered T cell therapies for a broad spectrum of cancers.

Our proprietary neoantigen T cell receptor (TCR) discovery and T cell engineering platform identifies TCR genes with specificity for neoantigens – found exclusively on cancer cells as a result of cancer-associated DNA mutations.

Cancer is a genetically individual disease – no two tumors are exactly the same. These variations create neoantigens – unique targets for every tumor. Neogene’s novel approach delivers a tailored T cell therapy containing a unique set of specific TCR genes for each individual patient. Engineered into patient-derived T cells, these TCRs are directed toward neoantigens in tumor cells, with the goal of eliciting strong and durable responses in a variety of solid tumor indications.

We offer the opportunity to join a highly dynamic biotech start-up. You can expect a collaborative environment created by a team with deep scientific expertise and an industrial track-record in T cell therapies. We value pro-active team-players who pursue their goals with dedication, endurance and a daring mindset. If you share our commitment to make a difference to patients in need, we can provide an exciting opportunity for your career.
