We are currently seeking a Scientist* Immunopeptidomics & Proteomics to support our team in the research and development of innovative immunotherapeutic products. You will work in Tuebingen (Germany) in an interdisciplinary environment with colleagues from all research, preclinical and clinical development departments.
The job profile is focused on the characterization and validation of novel HLA presented targets, which will involve but is not limited to these tasks:
- Characterization of HLA presented peptides using Immatics’ highly sensitive absolute quantitation technology (AbsQuant®) to identify and validate the best targets for clinical development
- Coordination and project management of target characterization activities involving stakeholders from different departments and disciplines
- Contribution to the elucidation of the biological mechanisms of novel cryptic targets using various Omics datasets integrated in Immatics’ XPRESIDENT® target discovery and validation platform
- Development of new strategies and methodologies for target characterization using a diverse set of protein chemistry and mass spectrometry techniques
You hold a PhD degree in Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Medicine, Pharmacy or have been comparably educated.
