Scientist II, Cell Biology
Ref No.: 18-43139
Location: Carlsbad, California
Position Type:Contract
Skill Type
Skill Type:Professional
Job Summary:
The primary focus of the Scientist II role will be the design, execution, and analysis of process development experiments to support bioprocessing integration of CAR-T production.

The Scientist II will work collaboratively within the R&D cell biology team to integrate new technologies, products and protocols for CAR-T production (T cell isolation, activation, expansion, gene editing).

Additionally, this role may be responsible for the evaluation of new technologies. This is a hands-on position with the candidate expected to spend at least 80% time at the bench.

Primary Responsibilities:
  • Development and optimization of current workflow for CAR-T production.
  • Test and integrate semiautomation machinery into CAR-T workflow.
  • Launch product using a gated approach.
  • Support process transfer to customers.
  • Author technical documents and PPt presentation

Required Qualifications:
  • Demonstrated experience with the development of bio-processes with CAR-T experience preferred. Demonstrated experience with either the development of bio-processes( bioreactor/wavebags, electroporation) or immunotherapy, experience in both preferred.
  • Experience with Finesse bioreactor/ deltaV software preferred.
  • Ability to work independently in a fast paced team environment, meet deadlines, prioritize work across multiple projects.
  • Self-starter with strong work ethic.
  • Must have excellent organizational, attention to detail, verbal and written communication skills.
