Immuno-Oncology Scientist

OcellO is expanding its services in the immune-oncology space. To support this, we are recruiting a post-doc level scientist with immuno-oncology/immunology expertise who will thrive in a stimulating commercial environment. The successful candidate will research, design, and develop immuno-oncology screening assays and be actively involved in their commercialization.

DESCRIPTION

We are looking for an independent and capable scientist to join our immuno-oncology team, and to play a key role in the development of an in vitro screening platform for testing cancer immunotherapies. These assays will take an advantage of OcellO’s scientifically and commercially validated technology that combines high throughput and high content screening with complex cellular biology in a format of 3D human tissue culture. OcellO’s platform is image based and therefore ideal for providing quantitative functional readouts of the modulatory effect of immunotherapies on interactions between different cell types.

The successful candidate will be working on the development of new biological models that incorporate different cellular players into 3D co-cultures of cancer and immune cells; these include T-cells, macrophages, APCs, stromal cells. Sound knowledge of immunology and cellular biology is therefore essential. Given the innovative character of this project, the candidate has to be creative, demonstrate an ‘out-of-the-box thinking’ attitude, and possess exceptional problem-solving skills. As part of the immuno-oncology team, which is led by the senior immuno-oncologist, you will closely collaborate with scientists that have complementary expertise, e.g. in lab automation, 3D culture, microscopy imaging and bioinformatics. The new member of staff will also be involved in the commercialization of the immuno-oncology services – which includes communicating with (potential) clients. For this reason, good communication and social skills as well as affinity with commercialization of technology are essential. The position also involves management of both the scientific/technical and administrative/project management aspects, which include e.g. project design and writing, quality control, presentations, writing customer reports, and managing timelines.

REQUIREMENTS:

• Post-doc level scientist

• PhD in the field of immunology, with expertise in cell biology, oncology

• Familiar with in vitro cellular assays and organoids technology

• Proficient in English

• Legal resident of the European Union

• Eager to keep up with the field and continuously learn

• Experience with managing customer projects is a big advantage

• Affinity with commercialization of technology
