The Diabetes Center is seeking an Assistant, Associate, or Full Specialist. In this position, you will lead cell therapy process development for the UCSF Regulatory T Cell Group. You will develop and improve the manufacturing process for regulatory T cell based cellular therapies in preparation for first-in-human clinical trials at UCSF. This job will require daily hands-on laboratory work with human T cells and creativity in solving problems that arise during product development. As the group grows, you will have supervisory responsibility for other scientists.
Translation of preclinical advances into cellular therapy treatments requires a team approach and you will need to be an effective communicator and a team player.
