We are seeking a Senior Scientific Researcher in the Department of Molecular Biology to support the development of innovative cellular therapeutics. She/he will be responsible for the design, execution, and validation of approaches that will contribute to both pre-clinical and clinical efforts, with a focus on genome modification of primary immune cell types. Strongest candidates will have expertise spanning immunology and molecular biology, including a deep understanding of genome engineering, gene expression, in vitro growth and manipulation of primary cells (T cells, HSCs), molecular cloning (PCR, expression vector design and manipulation), and molecular biology/next-generation sequencing analysis software.
Who You Are
A self-motivated, detail-oriented candidate with a PhD in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Cancer Biology, or a related discipline. The candidate is expected to work effectively in both independent and team-focused research environments.
Qualified candidates will have a skill set demonstrating successful design and application of nucleic acid-based technologies and genome editing in cellular models. Meticulous record keeping and organizational skills are critical, as is the ability to communicate effectively across multi-functional groups at Genentech, Inc. and with our world-wide collaborators.
