A unique opening for a highly skilled senior scientist for Antibody Engineering, Molecular Biology and Drug Discovery

 

Symphogen has entered an exciting phase as an Antibody Center of Excellence for Servier with a continued focus on the discovery and early development of novel antibody-based therapeutic products for the treatment of cancer and other diseases. To help Symphogen on this mission the Antibody Technology team has a unique new opening for a creative and motivated Senior Scientist to support them in their efforts to discover and develop the next generation of antibody-based drug candidates.

The main objective for you will be to innovate molecular biology processes for recombinant antibody repertoire cloning and engineering using the human antibody transgenic animals and high throughput single B cell cloning workflows. This is a senior level position that requires solid scientific expertise, attention to detail and the ability to work in a team-oriented culture, where knowledge sharing and idea generation with peers is key for advancing next generation antibody therapeutics.

Your main tasks and responsibilities will be:

  • Lead and support ongoing and future antibody discovery campaigns together with one technician
  • Perform lead selection by correlating NGS sequences with functional and protein quality data
  • Responsible for the design and evaluation of novel procedures for single cell sequencing
  • Contribute to improvement of processes for antibody sample and data management
  • Closely follow progress on novel antibody formats and emerging antibody technologies
  • Collaborate with scientists and technicians in Antibody Technology and other departments within Symphogen and Servier to contribute to the timely delivery of project goals
  • Leadership and collaboration with one allocated technician

The preferred candidate has solid experience within molecular biology and antibody drug discovery workflows and a keen interest in exploring novel antibody cloning procedures, workflows and participation in the antibody selection process.

You have a Ph.D. degree in immunology, molecular biochemistry, or other related biological science combined with a minimum of 3 years of industry experience or 6 years of university experience in drug discovery.

Furthermore, you have the following experience:

  • Working with NGS & Sanger DNA sequencing workflows and software (CLC or other)
  • Applying large data set correlations during the antibody selection process
  • Experience with bispecific antibody workflows is highly desirable
  • Using single cell sequencing (10x Genomics or other) is highly desirable

Symphogen offers a senior position at the Antibody Center of Excellence with cutting edge antibody technologies to help find the best leads, bring them into clinic and finally improve the lives of cancer and autoimmune patients worldwide. The location has optimized labs and state of the art equipment for antibody discovery and development including an animal facility. You will have passionate colleagues with lots of open dialogues, agility, empowerment, and fun.
