Postdoctoral Fellow – Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived T Cell Process Development
We are seeking an exceptional and enthusiastic researcher for a postdoctoral position in the T Cell Engineering and Development group within Pharma Technical Development. We wish to recruit an independent and highly collaborative researcher with an applied-science mindset in order to explore how Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) can be used to further characterize industrial T cell engineering and manufacturing processes. This postdoctoral scientist will be responsible for 1) the discovery of novel and efficient methods to reprogram human somatic cells into hiPSCs and 2) optimize protocols to differentiate hiPSCs into T cells in large scales.
Who You Are
A Ph.D. in immunology, molecular biology and/or stem cell biology with a strong background in induced pluripotent stem cells, and 0-2 years of postdoctoral experience. Productive doctoral training is expected and should be reflected through a record of high-impact publications. Strong oral and written communication skills are also required.
Additional recommended qualifications:
• Expertise in CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing is highly desired. • Strong background in molecular biology • Strong background in mammalian cell culture • Experience in T cell biology is highly desired • Expertise in reprogramming of cells to iPSCs and differentiation to T cells is preferred • Bioengineering PhD candidates with strong background in mammalian tissue culture and expertise in small-molecule screenings are strongly encouraged to apply • The selected candidate will be expected to work independently and be able to fully utilize the internal resources at Genentech such as collaborating with the Research and Early Development group (gRED) or other groups with Pharma Technical Development.
