We are seeking a Scientist/Senior Scientist to join our Stem Cell Therapeutics Group. As part of a highly collaborative, supportive, and friendly team, you will interact closely with other Scientists and Research Associates to drive discovery and development of Caribou’s first iPSC derived NK cell therapy product. You’ll apply your expertise in stem cell biology and immunology to solve the challenge of evaluating how closely iPSC derived NK cells resemble primary NK cells in both phenotype and function, and how to manipulate the differentiation process to produce desirable phenotypes in our NK cell product. You will do this by evaluating CAR construct designs in an NK cell line, as a quick assessment of function, later assessing CAR function into a more complex iPSC derived model. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop next-generation therapies and advance them into the clinic while growing with a team who are generous with their time, always willing to give advice to help with challenging experiments, and who are there to celebrate your wins.
