AbCellera is a nimble, energetic, and quickly growing tech company that searches, decodes, and analyzes natural immune systems to find antibodies that its partners can develop into drugs to prevent and treat disease. We are not afraid of challenges and together we tackle tough problems. AbCellera has made significant news as a leader in the development of antibody therapeutics to treat COVID-19. We won’t stop with this success though, and continue to partner with industry leaders to identify therapeutics for serious diseases.
Today, we’re able to discover antibodies and deliver them to our partners. But we’re not stopping there. We’re expanding our capabilities to help our partners get farther in drug development faster. We are seeking a highly motivated, hands-on, independent Senior Research Scientist to focus on addressing key biological questions and solutions in Immunology. This position will help to shape the strategy and organization for the entire team. We need someone who has a passion for understanding human disease. This scientist will build biological models and systems to increase confidence in the relevance of these targets so we can help our partners move faster and with less risk to the clinic. The scientist will also work closely with protein engineers to iteratively identify the best antibodies for the job. The ideal candidate has experience working with human samples and understands how they can be used to answer relevant biological questions. This is an excellent leadership opportunity that will collaborate closely with our partners to help them rapidly advance optimal therapeutics.
