For further expansion of our Research and Discovery teams, we are now seeking motivated Scientists with a PhD and broad knowledge and experience in the field of immunology, cell biology, autoimmune diseases or drug discovery. Industry experience or interaction is a must, whereas experience with antibody discovery and engineering is a plus.

As a scientist, you will be part of a project team in which you work closely with colleagues and external partners to discover and develop therapeutic antibodies. You will use your knowledge, critical thinking, the scientific and patent literature and academic contacts to help define research plans and experiments but also scout and evaluate opportunities. Moreover, you will contribute to scientific publications, patents and reports. You will need to prioritize your workflow, efficiently use resources and follow challenging timelines to achieve the project goals. You should be able to work independently and direct the research and day-to-day responsibilities of others, preferably by helping his or her team of research associates on the work floor. Candidate must have good communication skills in English - our corporate language - and should be able to work well in a team.
