PLATFORM INNOVATION (#112)

Invenra is a rapidly growing biotechnology company focused on developing novel technologies for multi-specific antibody drug discovery. Using Invenra’s proprietary B-BODY™, SNIPER™ and CLUSTR™ technologies, we have created a robust pipeline of next-generation multi-specific antibodies to address unmet therapeutic needs in immuno-oncology and autoimmunity.

 

Summary

We seek a highly innovative and technologically savvy individual to join our new platform innovation group. This person would be a key part of the effort to import and establish platform antibody discovery technologies, improve and streamline our current platforms, and invent and validate novel platforms. The ideal candidate will have deep experience with the process of antibody discovery, with hands-on expertise in at least one of the following areas: nanobodies (Camelid VHH domains), yeast surface display (or other selection platforms), and/or technologies for efficient identification of candidates from immunized mice (such as hybridoma or B-cell encapsulation). Beyond the specifics, we are looking for a can-do attitude, independent and out-of-box thinking, and a good team player.

 

 

Qualifications Required:

  • Ph.D. in biophysics, structural biology, bioengineering, or other relevant field, ideally with 2-6 additional years’ experience in antibody discovery, protein engineering, or selections (industry experience a plus). M.S. or B.A. with years of industry experience leading discovery/engineering projects would be considered as well

  • Demonstrated project leadership experience required

  • Track record of publications / patents / presentations demonstrating creative problem-solving, independent thinking, and scientific rigor

  • Expertise in at least some aspects of antibody drug discovery

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills

  • Ability to manage multiple tasks and priorities for successful project completion

  • Joy in taking on new challenges, and solving difficult problems

  • The desire to pursue self-initiate projects


Desired Experience/Familiarity with any of the following:

  • Experience with in vitro display systems such as yeast or mRNA display

  • Experience with antibody discovery from mouse immunizations

  • Experience with single domain binder such as VHH

  • Immunization schemes to maximize antibody diversity

  • Biology in a relevant therapeutic area (oncology, immunology)

  • Familiarity with protein structures and engineering

  • Experience with a variety of protein expression and purification approaches


The position comes with a competitive compensation and benefits package, including health and dental benefits, 401k match, stock option grants, paid time off, tuition reimbursement and paid company holidays. At Invenra, we believe in maintaining the highest ethical standards and ensuring that all employees have a good work-life balance.
