Scientist-Direct Hire-San Diego


A major responsibility for the scientist will include design and implementation of in vivo efficacy studies to test novel small molecule drug candidates in pre-clinical rodent models for targeted therapies in oncology and inflammation. Experience in execution of one or more ex vivo analytical techniques (qRT-PCR, IHC, flow cytometry) is highly desirable as is a background in cell and molecular biology. Additional responsibilities include design and interpretation of pharmacodynamic studies to evaluate in vivo target engagement and non-GLP toxicological studies to assess safety.


Essential Functions

  • Participate vigorously in matrixed project responsibilities for drug discovery at multiple targets.
  • Design, conduct, and interpret in vivo efficacy studies in cancer and immunology.
  • Train and/or supervise research associates in all required animal research procedures including surgery, tumor cell inoculation, dosing (oral, IV, IP), and tissue collection.
  • Support, design and execute¬†in vitro¬†pharmacological assays relevant to drug discovery.
  • Analyze and interpret experimental data and present findings to colleagues on a weekly basis.
  • Participate in design and reporting of research programs through literature review, data summaries, and interaction with partners and collaborators.
  • Implement new¬†in vivo¬†techniques, write animal use protocols and contribute to grant applications.


A Ph.D. or M.S. degree in a relevant field with at least 3-5 years’ experience in cancer biology or immunology, preferably in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry. You must possess strong verbal and written communication skills and an ability to work independently.
