Adicet Bio, Redwood City, California

Position Description:

We are seeking a highly motivated Scientist / Senior Scientist with a strong background in T cell biology to join our iPSC and Cell Engineering Team. The successful candidate will be part of a cross-disciplinary team responsible for exploring novel pursuits across the iPSC and Cell Engineering landscape. Focused activities will include the redifferentiation and characterization of immune effector gamma delta T cell populations derived from existing dedifferentiated iPSC banks. In addition, the successful candidate will be responsible for integration and rigorous characterization of novel cell engineering technologies to enhance gamma delta T cell effector functions.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Independently design and execute studies to optimize methods for iPSC differentiation into functional gamma delta T cells
  • Develop and establish assays to characterize the molecular and functional phenotype of iPSC-derived gamma delta T cells
  • Investigate novel cell engineering technologies to functionally enhance the efficacy of gamma delta T cells
  • Analyze and interpret experimental data and summarize key findings to drive critical decision making.
  • Collaborate across functional groups, manage multiple projects while adhering to timelines
  • Provide mentorship and support to direct reports and other team members

Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in Immunology, Tumor Immunology, or related field with a minimum of 3+ years of post-doctoral or industry experience
  • Strong background in T cell biology including differentiation, activation pathways, and effector mechanisms
  • Knowledge and experience with iPSC reprogramming and differentiation into T cells
  • Experience with viral and non-viral gene editing techniques in primary T cells
  • Expertise with molecular and immunological assays to characterize T cell molecular and functional phenotypes and including, but not limited to, PCR/qPCR/ddPCR, RNA-Seq, multiparameter flow cytometry, cytokine release assays, and cytotoxicity assays
  • Excellent interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills
  • Strong management skills and ability to create, influence, and lead a team
