The role requires the ability to collaborate with colleagues in a cross-functional, fast-paced team environment. The successful candidate will be self-motivated, resourceful, and flexible with the ability to handle rapidly changing objectives and timelines. Extensive experience with rodent handling, injections, tissue collection and pre-clinical models of oncology is required; experience using commercially available antibody-based assays (e.g., ELISA, MSD, Luminex) is desired. Experience in an industrial lab focused on protein therapeutics discovery/development is also desired. Experience with scientific software (Excel, GraphPad Prism) is required.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • B.S. or M.S. in biology, physiology or related scientific major
  • Minimum of 5 years of relevant laboratory experience, including research and development of biologic therapeutics in a biotechnology or pharma company
  • Experience and success working with pre-clinical oncology models, including syngeneic, xenograftic or orthotopic approaches
