Senior Scientist (Macrophage Biology)
We are proud to be supporting a Biotechnology start-up based in Cambridge who are taking an innovative approach to cancer medicines through the targeting of disease specific macrophages. This is an incredible opportunity to make a substantial positive impact on healthcare.
We are assisting this organisation in their search for a Senior Research Scientist (macrophage biology). The successful candidate will have experience in human immunology – specifically the role of myeloid cells in disease. You will be responsible for the identification of the mechanisms underpinning the company’s lead drug candidates and develop novel assays for macrophage cell directed therapies.
- Develop custom assays for immune cell (including myeloid cells) targeted therapies.
- Characterise candidate drugs using primary human immune cell assays.
- Primary human cell phenotypic characterisation using flow cytometry, multi-omics assays and imaging.
- Mammalian cell engineering.
You must have the following experience:
- PhD/Post-doc or equivalent industrial experience in relevant discipline.
- Experienced developing assays with human primary immune cells (including macrophages), ideally in an industrial environment.
- Experienced with cell and tissue culture, including genetic manipulation of cells (established/primary cell lines, RNAi, Knockouts).
- Previous experience developing biochemical and cell-based assays for the testing of drug candidates (e.g. flow cytometry, phenotypic assays).
