My client is a fast growing and well backed T Cell therapy business in Oxford and are currently recruiting for both a Scientist and a Senior Scientist to join their already well established team

You will support the efforts in the Cellular Immunology group to identify the most immunogenic antigens to identify optimal antigens for targeting with T cell receptors, vaccines, or other modalities, and selection and characterisation of the most effective T cell receptors for further development. This data will drive the development of biologics and cell therapies to make a meaningful difference for patients suffering from cancer.

You will be responsible for:

* Actively contributing to a vibrant and innovative working environment where improvements and new ideas are adopted and freely shared among the teams

* Providing scientific leadership, supervision, coaching and mentorship for less experienced scientists in your team, as well as other scientists in our matrixed environment

* Providing expert technical direction, challenge and problem solving in projects

* Working closely with other research functional teams (e.g. Bioinformatics and Immunopeptidomics) to validate the role of novel T cell antigens and cognate T cell receptors in cancer. This work will form the basis of T cell therapies for cancer

* Designing, conducting and evaluating experiments to establish the efficacy of T cell receptors against novel cancer antigens

* T cell profiling for very low frequency cells (use of Elispot, multimers), FACS sorting/analysis, CTL cloning and recombinant T cell receptor expression/characterization. Killing assays using flow and electrical impedence-based methodology.

* Establishment of robust T cell expansion protocols for clinical application

Minimum Qualifications and Experience required

* Proven experience of working with CAR-T/TCR-T methodologies ideally in a biotech setting or alternatively in an academic setting (minimum of 3-5 years)

* Proven experience of working on cell-based therapies
