JOB TITLE: RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
DURATION: 12 MONTHS CONTRACT
The successful candidate will help facilitate the development of assays that characterize the biological activity (e.g. metabolism, proliferation, effector function, and vector function) of autologous and allogenic cell therapies which are currently undergoing clinical trials, including CAR T cell products. The Research Associate will be able to execute and analyze experiments with some oversight that lead to the development of robust analytical methods. The candidate will have the responsibility for developing highly impactful methods, including QC methods for lot release & stability testing as well as extended characterization methods that support process development and comparability assessments. These methods will be used to further understanding of cell therapies, support development of the manufacturing processes, and/or QC release of the drug product. The Research Associate will have hands-on experience in assay development and will be interested in projects requiring close collaboration with other groups, such as discovery research, product sciences, process development, and QC. The Research Associate will be passionate about developing novel medicines, thrive in an intellectually challenging environment, and enjoy collaborating with a team of likeminded Scientists.
