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.
ArsenalBio builds powerful cell therapy products using its growing toolbox of synthetic receptors and other elements to form complex, integrated transgene cassettes for cell engineering. We use gene editing to engineer T cells with those cassettes to perform research and manufacture products, and advancement of that gene editing capabilities is a major commitment. In this role, you will contribute to that advancement by helping to lead discovery efforts that will drive development of improved gene editing processes.
What You Will Do:Help lead gene editing research efforts to increase cassette integration efficiency and yields of engineered T cellsIdentify key questions relevant to improving T cell engineering performance, and then answer themConceive, plan, and execute large-scale experiments to discover T cell engineering protocol enhancementsDesign, build, and validate assays as necessarySummarize and synthesize data across experiments and present findings to colleaguesGuide decision-making processes on project teams, ensuring clear documentation and data sharing practicesMentor younger scientists and research associates in experiment design, data analysis, and scientific communicationWork successfully in matrix organizations via contribution of data, ideas, and presentations.
What Will You Bring:Your whole selfPh.D. in biology or a related field, with 2+ years of combined relevant research experience in industry and academia, or Masters degree with 7+ years, or Bachelors degree with 9+ yearsSignificant experience in cell engineering and gene delivery workflows and technologiesEntrepreneurial behaviors demonstrated by agility, accountability, transparency, resourcefulness, and ability to get things done1+ years of mentoring experienceAbility to quickly learn new skills and knowledge on the job, demonstrate productivity, and deliver high-quality resultsFlexible mind with ability to think outside the box, creative approach to problem solving, and comfort in working with ambiguous data in an open-ended, exploratory processDemonstrated ability to perform as a team player
