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.
The role will report to the Chief Technology Officer and build a matrix team to enable close collaborative interactions with all R&D functions. The Automation Engineering and High-Throughput Assays functional groups will report to this role. These subject-matter experts are responsible for providing technical expertise, design and validation of high-throughput assays, and management of integrated automation solutions throughout the asset lifecycle (i.e., project feasibility studies, capital projects, and optimization of assets). In addition, they are accountable for the development and implementation of automation design standards and best practices. As needed, the role will also be responsible for scoping and recruiting new functional groups to maintain continuous operation of automated systems at ArsenalBio.
