Bold ideas. Reliable data. World-Class Science.

Designing therapies to cure our most important health challenges requires the audacity to advance a bold idea and explore new biologies with world-class science.

By pushing at the frontiers of science, challenging what we think we know, and holding ourselves to the highest standards of irrefutable proof, we are reshaping the future of curative cellular therapies.

Senior Scientist, Flow Cytometry Assay Development

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 an outstanding scientist to drive next-generation flow cytometry methods within ArsenalBio. The ideal candidate will have a broad understanding of flow cytometry and its applications, as well as a proven track record of developing innovative flow cytometry protocols for solving complex biological problems. As a strong technical contributor, this role will collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to advance ArsenalBio research.

  • Develop high- and low-complexity flow cytometry panels for discovery, pre-clinical and clinical studies
  • Innovate and establish novel flow cytometry methods to extract new types of information from research and clinical samples
  • Evaluate new flow cytometry technologies and platforms (e.g. full spectrum cytometry)
  • Lead pilot studies to translate promising new concepts in scientific publications into related experiments
  • Participate in cross-functional collaborations with multiple groups to advance broad company goals and objectives
  • Contribute flow cytometry expertise, leadership, and technical guidance to cross-disciplinary teams.
  • Advance flow cytometry technology utilization and understanding across the company
  • Work closely with computational biologists to create automated data analysis pipelines
  • What You Will Bring

  • Bachelor, Masters or Ph.D. in Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology or a closely-related field
  • 5+ years experience of full-time, hands-on flow cytometry experience in an academic or industry setting 
  • Deep understanding of flow cytometry assay development and the principles of flow cytometry technologies
  • Previous work with a variety of flow cytometry sample preparation workflows and analysis
  • Experience in high-content screening, traditional and full spectrum flow cytometry, and functional assays (e.g. intracellular cytokine staining, proliferation)
  • Significant experience in troubleshooting, method development, and optimization of flow cytometry-based assays
  • Strong background in cellular biology
  • Experience operating liquid handling robots or other lab automation for high-throughput assays is desired
  • Experience in computational analysis of flow cytometry data
  • Ability to quickly learn new skills and knowledge on the job, demonstrate productivity and deliver high-quality results
  • We are committed to hiring the best talent. A diverse workforce engenders richness of thought, creativity and discovery. We invite individuals who embrace intellectual achievement to bring their unique personal and professional journeys and together we will build transformative cell therapies for cancer patients.

    ArsenalBio was formed by its investors and scientific founders to discover, develop and commercialize curative and safe cellular therapies for patients with life threatening diseases, initially cancer.

    We believe the most productive and secure route to achieving this goal is to build scaled platforms of technologies challenged with scientific questions to yield informative data from hypothesis driven, well controlled experiments. These data will inform the design of ambitious, best-in-class, lead compositions. Our leads will be rigorously evaluated and honed until we are convinced our matured leads, called development candidates, can be prepared for testing in needy, and vulnerable patients.

    Our products will be designed to speed the transition of cell therapy from hospital-based to outpatient treatments, increasing access to more patients at lower cost to patients, health systems, and insurers.

    To achieve this mission, we are building diverse teams of talented, curious, and caring individuals who believe in our mission and our vision to be sustainable in our business plan, our work habits, and our personal lives.

    Our values create: a foundation for mutual respect, an engaging harmony from many voices, and unselfish behavior to aid our colleagues.

    This is ArsenalBio.
    This is our Company.
