Job Summary

Our mission is to make immune measurement a reality for clinical trials and patients. If we achieve this mission, we will put 100+ years back on the clock for drug developers, physicians and patients, and unlock a $22B market opportunity. You wouldn’t run an Ozempic trial without a weight scale; and our aim is that you wouldn’t run an immunotherapy trial without Teiko.

We use high-dimensional cytometry to measure the immune state of patients on trial in our Clinical Laboratory Inspection Amendment (CLIA)-registered lab. We’re powering immunotherapy development for $B drug developers and have dozens of happy customers. This role is intended for someone interested in working at the intersection of immunology, data science, and high-speed lab operations.

Sounds interesting to you? Read on.

About you:

  • Familiar with single cell and high-parameter flow cytometry assays
  • Motivated to help breakthrough therapies reach patients
  • Excited to tackle ground-floor challenges and work with seasoned scientists and proven entrepreneurs

The Scientist will be performing immunophenotyping with human specimens. Responsibilities include the design, development, execution and validation of cytometry assays; data acquisition, analysis and documentation of results. The Scientist will participate in the development of new procedures and tests in the laboratory located in Salt Lake City, UT. This position will report to the VP of Laboratory Operations.

Job Description

  • You’ll be asked to:
    • Independently plan and execute cytometry assays
    • Process specimens from diverse tissue origins [i.e. tumor], and use flow- and mass- cytometry instruments to provide data on target cellular level, cell phenotype, cellular signaling and downstream functional response. The result of these initiatives will enable project milestones and influence portfolio decisions for our customers.
    • Drive technology innovation, review literature, evaluate new methodologies and instrumentation. All of these initiatives will help advance single-cell analysis.
    • Critically analyze experimental data and communicate results across teams with diverse scientific and technical backgrounds
    • Adhere to scientific rigor and standards including electronic record keeping, data peer-review, quality control and reporting.
    • Present complex data internally at team meetings and externally at scientific venues and conferences.

Education and Experience

  • While no formal degree is required, the candidate must demonstrate mastery of scientific techniques and methods. You can accomplish this with an excellent track-record of scientific research. Alternately, the rough proxies for education attainment would be Ph.D. with 0+ years or M.Sc. with 3+ years of research experience in molecular biology, immunology, immuno-oncology, or a related field in an academic or biopharmaceutical setting
  • Experience with multi-color flow cytometry is preferred
  • Experience with protein biochemistry techniques is preferred
  • Proficiency in Biosafety Level (BSL) 2 cell culture techniques
  • Demonstrated track record of independent research and scientific productivity, such as first-author publications in peer review journals
  • Be a self-starter, able to handle multiple projects concurrently
  • Experience working well with teams, adapting to rapidly changing customer needs, and delivering quality work on time
