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.
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 guide those advancement efforts, working across functions to understand future needs and current limitations. Furthermore, it will involve a close partnership with ArsenalBio’s Technical Operations group to translate improvements.
What You Will Do:Lead gene editing research efforts to increase cassette integration efficiency and yields of engineered T cellsDerive deep understanding of limitations of current generation T cell engineering approaches to guide and prioritize improvement effortsDevelop strategic plans, balanced for risk and resource intensiveness, and identify areas of opportunity based on literature and other considerationsManage projects across functional groupsGuide decision-making processes on project teams, ensuring clear documentation and data sharing practicesCoordinate tasks across multiple projects, demonstrating prioritization and planningRecruit and mentor scientists and research associates with relevant expertiseFlexibility to work remotely based on manager’s discretion and on project needs
What You Will Bring:Your whole selfPhD in molecular biology, immunology, protein engineering or a related field, with 3+ years of combined relevant research experience in industry and academiaSignificant expertise in cell engineering and gene delivery workflows and technologies1+ years of project leadership experienceEntrepreneurial behaviors demonstrated by agility, accountability, transparency, resourcefulness, and ability to get things doneAbility 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
