ArsenalBio’s mission is to develop efficacious and safe cellular therapies for patients with chronic diseases, initially cancer. Our products are being designed to herald the transition of adoptive cell therapy from a hospital based treatment to outpatient therapy, like most other cancer treatments. Our people are our greatest asset, they bring scientific talents in molecular biology, immunology, pharmacology, protein chemistry, computational biology, automation, genome engineering, software and other fields to make the future happen now.
We are seeking two organized and motivated Senior Research Associates or a Scientist I to perform laboratory-based experiments in the area of T cell immunology and cell therapy within our Discovery Research team. The ideal candidate will work closely with our lead scientists to design and perform experiments to screen for our next-generation cell therapy products. The successful candidate will work closely with various teams within ArsenalBio, in a matrixed environment, to coordinate tasks and prioritize projects to meet deadlines.
