Research Group Leader

Position Summary

Genocea Biosciences is an immuno-oncology biotechnology company focused on bringing personalized cancer vaccines to patients. Genocea’s foundational technology, the ATLAS™ platform, is a high-throughput autologous cell assay that discovers T cell antigens thought to be important in fighting a patient’s disease.  ATLAS™ results are used to select validated neoantigens for a patient-specific vaccine, and upon population-based screening can identify antigens to include in a common vaccine.  Our lead program, GEN-009, a personalized neoantigen vaccine, will soon be in the clinic.

Genocea is seeking an exceptional scientist to lead the ATLAS platform team.


Key responsibilities

  • Scientific and logistic leadership of a team of scientists and research associates to execute on goals of rapid delivery of the identity of patient neoantigens for vaccination.
  • Drive innovative immune cell biology research that increases our understanding of antigen selection and refines ATLAS™ features.
  • Key member of the research and cross-functional program teams, contributing to strategy with senior management.
  • Presentation of coherent and cohesive scientific data internally and externally
  • Ensure scientific integrity and documentation of experimental data to meet standards suitable for intellectual property, FDA submissions, and publication.


Education and Experience Required

  • D. in immunology, cell biology or other related fields with 5+ years of biopharmacuetical experience. Outstanding M.Sc. candidates will be considered.
  • Demonstrated science leadership experience including execution of projects on time and budget.
  • Expertise developing cell-based screening assays. Autologous assay screening experience a plus.
  • Excellent communication skills contributing to the success of cross functional groups.
  • Driven to leverage external research for constant refinement of ATLAS.
