  • Actively contribute to development and efficient execution of muti-color flow cytometry assays for characterization of CAR T manufacturing process and drug products.
  • Provide analytical support for clinical-scale IND-enabling manufacturing operations, including assay qualification and assist in tech transfer in support of GMP lot release.
  • Provide technical expertise and leadership within project teams and in a matrix environment.
  • Establish tracking and trending analyses of process development and cGMP production runs, including evaluation of critical reagents and lot to lot variability, in order to improve process standardization.
  • Good understanding of cGMP environment, and Quality by Design (QBD) principles for process and assay development, qualification and validation preferred.
  • Collaborate closely with other functions to enable effective and successful project development; actively engage in cross-functional collaboration with peers to overcome challenges

  • - PhD with minimum of 2 years
    - Masters with minimum 7+ years of industry experience
    - Bachelors with minimum 9+ years of industry experience
  • 2+ years of hands-on experience of muti-color (10+) flow cytometry experience is a must. Experience in cell therapy product development is a plus.
  • Proficiency in muti-dementional data analysis and interpretation using software such as FlowJo and JMP.
  • Experience in technical development of analytic assays to support cell and gene therapy biologics and other advanced modalities in an early development setting 
  • Strong leadership skills and strategic problem-solving ability; ability to predict issues and identify solutions
  • Ability to lead successfully within extended project teams and handle multiple challenges under pressure
  • Excellent communications and presentation skills, written and verbal

    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.
