Job Description

The Cell Therapy Product Sciences department is seeking two Senior Research Associate to support the development of gene engineered T cell products. Product Sciences is responsible for developing and executing mechanism of action and characterization studies to support the development of gene-engineered T cell therapies.

The primary focus of the Senior Research Associate - Product Sciences role will be to build CAR/TCR T cell product and process understanding in support of early and late-stage CAR T with a particular focus on exploratory/investigational needs for late-stage programs. Successful candidates will have a very strong foundation in cell-based assays (flow cytometry, proliferation, cytotoxicity, cytokine release, etc) and some background in human T cell biology and/or other immune cell types.

Experience with implementation and optimization of a broad range of in vitro cell-based and molecular assays is critical (especially multi-color flow cytometry and cell culture).

This role is highly collaborative and requires attention to detail, a healthy sense of urgency, a strong desire to learn, and a passion for exploratory and investigational science. Furthermore, a demonstrated ability to support cross-functional teams and independently design and execute studies to meet project goals is very highly desirable (albeit not a requirement and will depend on the applicants individual qualifications).
  • Primarily, support late-stage drug product and manufacturing process understanding by performing exploratory studies and investigational analyses including experimental design and execution, statistical/correlative analyses of existing data sets, writing technical reports, presenting data, etc. Additionally, depending on the applicants individual qualifications, duties and responsibilities include the following:

  • Participate in cross-functional teams to support the development of gene engineered T cell therapeutic platforms.
  • Identification and development of novel analytical approaches for interrogating gene engineered T cell function. Develop and maintain relationships with external collaborators and service providers.
  • Serve as T cell biology subject matter expert in multidisciplinary team setting, that includes non-clinical, clinical, regulatory, and CMC functions.
  • Perform and manage instrument and method troubleshooting
  • Author, review, and approve technical documents, including methods, protocols, reports, and SOPs
  • Learn and apply ICH/FDA/EMEA guidance and current thinking.
