Posted on Saturday, April 20, 2024
Over one million people in the world today are fighting blood cancer. While a traditional allogeneic stem cell transplant has been the best hope for many patients, the transplant itself can prove fatal or lead to serious conditions, such as graft versus host disease.
Orca Bio's investigational, high-precision cell therapies are designed to replace a patient's compromised blood and immune system with a healthy one, while dramatically lowering the risk of developing life-threatening or debilitating transplant-related side-effects. The first application of Orca Bio’s platform is in blood cancer where the unmet need is most acute; with a robust pipeline of promising cell therapies, we plan to extend into autoimmune diseases and genetic blood disorders as well.
Responsibilities:
● Perform scientific investigations related to immune cell function and analytical technologies
● Perform analytical method optimization and validation experiments
● Serve as subject matter expert for flow cytometry-based immunoassays
● Provide guidance to junior analysts to support method validation and transfer experiments
● Carry out experimental data analysis and compile data packages
● Support documentation preparation including development study protocols and reports
● Collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams including Process Development, Quality Control and Quality Assurance
Required Experience:
● PhD in Immunology or related field with 0-3 years postdoctoral/industry experience in immunoassay development. M.S. + 5 years industry experience may also be considered with demonstrated track record in immunoassay development and flow cytometry expertise
● Must have strong expertise in flow cytometry-base immunoassay technology
● Ability to provide technical troubleshooting to the cross-functional teams
● Outstanding written and verbal and written communication skills
● Self-starter with great interpersonal skills and strong planning/tracking skills
● Must be able to work in a fast paced, changing environment with demonstrated ability to manage multiple competing responsibilities with a high degree of self-motivation
The anticipated annual salary for this U.S. based job is $75,000– $100,000. The final offer will be based on professional experience previously in this role/industry, education, geographic location, internal equity, and other job-related factors as permitted by law. For remote-based candidates, this range may vary based on your local market. Actual compensation may vary. You will also be eligible to receive pre-IPO equity, in addition to medical, dental, vision, PTO, 401(k) plan, life and accidental death and disability coverage, and parental leave benefits. Total compensation will be determined at the Company's sole discretion.
Who we are

We strive to do things right, and to embody our core values of passion, courage, and integrity. Excellence in our work means the potential to unlock a better quality of life for our patients, and with that comes tremendous responsibility.
We innovate daily on a path that hasn’t been paved. This means we lean heavily on our entrepreneurial spirit and are comfortable taking calculated risks to achieve progress toward our mission. It means we aren’t afraid to ask “why not,” and encourage lively discourse around rethinking the status quo.
