​Seeking Principal Protein Scientist for exciting Biotech in the Pacific Northwest!


I am partnering with a stable, growing start up utilizing a highly innovative protein technology to enable next generation treatments in immuno-oncology. This company currently has multiple candidates in pre-clinical and clinical phase testing and is looking to introduce a new pipeline later this year!


You'll be a key player on a team of subject matter experts and take ownership of purification and biophysical characterization, including designing and conducting experiments to evaluate novel bispecific proteins. The Principal Scientist is a player-coach level position and will have opportunity to work hands-on while managing existing scientific staff on the Protein Sciences team.


The ideal candidate will have a PhD and 7-10+ year of experience working with protein purification & characterization for antibodies from mammalian expression systems (affinity, size exclusion, ion exchange, and/or hydrophobic interaction chromatography). You should be familiar with GE AKTA chromatography, SDS-PAGE gels, Western blots, analytical size exclusion chromatography, Isoelectric Focusing (IEF) and other analysis methods of recombinant proteins.


At the Principal level, candidates will be expected to demonstrate prior managerial/leadership experience as well as the ability to multi-task across multiple experiments and projects. We are open to considering a less experienced candidate for a Senior level position with excellent growth opportunity, please apply for more information.


This role is a high priority for the company and will move quickly for the right applicant! Interested parties should apply today for a confidential conversation to learn more about the team.
