Job Code 229LG


Fate Therapeutics is seeking a highly motivated in vivo pharmacologist to join a multidisciplinary team dedicated to the discovery of novel cellular therapies. The qualified candidate is a highly motivated, interactive, and creative individual that possesses the ability to work across a highly matrixed environment to advance preclinical programs from target identification/validation through IND enabling activities. The candidate will develop novel animal models that more closely mimic human cancer and answer mechanistic questions, validate early targets that have the potential to progress, and test and screen drug candidates using a wide range of animal models including syngeneic, CDX and, potentially, GEMM models. Specifically, this position will work with other research and development groups and program group leaders to prioritize and coordinate efficient use of the in vivo department facilities, equipment, and staff. The position requires excellent people management skills with in-depth knowledge of in vivo pharmacology, cell therapy, rodent models of human disease and preclinical imaging and histology.
