Manager/Scientist – In Vivo Research

 Location: South San Francisco, CA

(No relocation candidates, only local candidates will be considered)

Parvus Therapeutics is pioneering a breakthrough class of disease-specific, non-immunosuppressive biologics called NavacimsTM that are designed to halt and potentially cure autoimmune disease and other inflammatory disorders by restoring immune tolerance.  Navacims are comprised of iron oxide nanoparticles coated with disease-relevant peptide-major histocompatibility complex (pMHCs) proteins. Therapeutic use of Navacims trigger significant reduction in disease-associated inflammation without effecting general immunity through the induction and systemic expansion of disease-specific type 1 regulatory T (TR1) cells resulting in profound and durable therapeutic efficacy as assessed in preclinical disease models.

Parvus recently announced that it had entered into a worldwide collaboration and license agreement with Genentech covering three programs: Autoimmune Liver Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Celiac Disease.  In support of our new partnership, Parvus is expanding to on-board the additional resources necessary to advance these programs to the clinic.

 

The Position: Manager/Scientist – In Vivo Research

We are seeking a Manager (Bachelor’s or Master’s) or Scientist (Ph.D.) to join the Parvus Immunology Research Group to help oversee and conduct in vivo animal studies for our various therapeutic area projects. This is a hands-on position that is focused on in vivo techniques and readouts, and includes related downstream ex vivo assays. The desired candidate will be someone who has extensive rodent research animal experience (mice), including NSG and autoimmune mouse models, and an interest in using in vivo models to investigate Navacim-induced therapeutic efficacy and characterize mechanisms of action. Compensation and title will be commensurate with experience level.
