Company

Adoc Talent Management is looking for a Senior Scientist in Immunology for its client, an innovative biotechnology spin-off, based on an academic tech transfer aiming at disrupting cell based therapy, particularly immunomodulation technologies though a proprietary technology platform. This early stage start-up strengthens its scientific team to address the scientific and technical issues to develop the proof of concept.

Position

As an expert in immunology, you will work on the core project of the company (development of new immunomodulation systems), in close collaboration with the Scientific Director and the other Senior Scientists who designed and currently optimize the technology.

Passionate with translational research, your role will be to contribute to the proof of concept on an immunology stand point. This includes both scientific/technical orientation, experimental design and bench work. You will combine in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo approaches. Your activities will include primary cell culture, manipulation and infection of cells. You will develop and perform immunomodulation assays.

You will carry out a technical and scientific watch to constantly be creative and to propose new methods or to optimize those that you have already implemented. In addition, you may set up new academic and industrial collaborations if needed. Your work will lead to patents or publications.

Profile

Holding a PhD in immunology and ideally international post-doctoral experience, you are considered as an autonomous scientist in your field. Still hands-on, you master the main immunology methods (cell manipulation, purification of primary immune cells, cytotoxicity, phenotyping and characterization by cell sorting, multiparametric flow cytometry) and are used to L2/3 Lab work. You ideally have prior experience on checkpoints inhibitors or Cell Based Therapy. Translational research is a must have, exposure to clinical research would be a plus, as-well-as experience in the biotech / pharma industry.

Beyond your technical skills, you are recognized for your resilience, your problem-solving and thinking out of the box abilities. With a strong team spirit, you enjoy collective successes the most. Harder worker and self-driven, you are looking for a challenging working environment where you will learn fast and grow your skill set as the project moves forwards.

If you want to join a young innovative start-up to become an active player of the next generation cell based therapy, please send your application (CV, list of publications and patents, motivations, salary expectations) to Adoc Talent Management!
