Overview

AlivaMab Discovery Services (ADS) is seeking an outstanding individual with a range of skill sets in facilities and lab management and operations to join our team and make impactful contributions toward discovering the next generation of antibody-based therapeutics. Candidates with knowledge and experience functioning in a lean environment will be prioritized. This role will report to the Senior Director, Operations. Title will be commensurate with experience.

 

ADS is a rapidly growing leader in the discovery of human antibody therapeutics, trusted by top-tier pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to deliver panels of drug-quality human antibodies. We deliver on our partners' design goals, from simple to extraordinarily challenging, through collaborative access to our scientists' creativity and experience combined with proven technologies, including the AlivaMab® Mouse suite of transgenic mice. We excel in the rapid and efficient delivery of molecularly diverse therapeutic antibody candidates, well-characterized for function, kinetics and developability, with expanding capabilities for engineering for alternative formats, including multispecifics and CARs. Our organization is dedicated to creating a healthier world through partnerships that bring better medicines to patients faster, and we recognize our success starts with hiring people who share our passion for science.
