Careers

Senior Research Associate, Immunology at Celsius Therapeutics
Cambridge, MA, US

We are looking for researchers to join our Biology team in leveraging the power of single-cell genomics towards drug discovery.  Your work developing in vitro immunological assays to better understand the role of novel targets will have a major impact on developing new drugs for patients suffering from cancer and autoimmune diseases.  We seek people who are curious about new science, comfortable being independent, confident in voicing their opinions, flexible to change as needs arise, and open to working with others on a diverse team.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Developing in vitro immunological assays to validate targets and drive drug discovery.
  • Using genetic and pharmacological perturbations to validate new candidate drug targets.
  • In depth analysis of immune cell types in multiple biological contexts.
  • Effectively interpreting experimental results.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • BS or MS, with at least 5 years of experience in an academic or industry lab.
  • Proven ability to troubleshoot technical and scientific issues, both individually and part of a team.
  • A deep knowledge of immunology methods (e.g., multicolor flow, immune cell polarization protocols, MLR, PBMC isolation).
  • Experience working with a diverse range of human and/or mouse immune primary cells
  • Experience with ex vivo analysis of tissues and cells from in vivo models including mouse tumor models or autoimmune models.
  • A track record of successfully probe pathogenic immune mechanisms is highly desired.
  • Excellent organizational and documentation skills.
  • Outstanding written and oral communication skills.
