About us:

We are a revolutionary biotech with East and West Coast presence, aimed to improve the current standards of cell therapy for cancer and beyond. Spun off from an Ivy league school, we leverage proprietary, next-level gene editing platforms for highly efficient engineering of therapeutic immune cells to develop the best cell therapy candidates that can overcome the hurdles in today’s cancer treatment.

The Role: We are looking for a Scientist/Engineer (no PhD required) experienced with CAR Immunology, process development and Preclinical Development with expertise in adoptive cell therapy and CAR immune cell engineering.

In this role, the candidate will be involved with the research and preclinical development of our research pipeline. The candidate will be tasked with T cell Engineering, Vector Engineering, NK Cell Engineering and working with Bioinformatics teams.

We are looking for candidates who enjoy working in a team and can leverage the growth opportunities that an early startup provides. This is an exceptional opportunity for someone who is excited about cell therapy development and making an impact.
