United States
At Lilly, we unite caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We are a global healthcare leader headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our 39,000 employees around the world work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We give our best effort to our work, and we put people first. We’re looking for people who are determined to make life better for people around the world.
Lilly's Biotechnology Center in San Diego is looking to expand its capabilities in the immunogenicity research group. We are looking for a highly motivated and agile scientist. Your contributions may include independently designing, developing and validating the cellular/immunology cell-based functional assays to test and analyze molecule activities, investigate the mechanism of action of biological drugs in vitro and in vivo, and ultimately to deliver preclinical evidence for future clinical testing. Key responsibilities may include:
  • Develop immune functional cell-based assays with extensive immunology research- related technologies (e.g. human whole blood, primary human and mouse/rat leukocyte isolation, cellular activation and differentiation, cytokine assays, FACS, etc).
  • Design, screen and analyze data for protein in cell-based assays.
  • Investigate cellular signal transduction, develop cellular activity assays, cytokine/receptor signaling (western, qPCR, intracellular staining and ELISA, ELISPOT, confocal/image related techniques).
  • Isolation, purification and culture of freshly isolated different populations of leukocyte from human, mouse and rat for ex vivo assays.
  • Preparing cellular materials for genomic and proteomic assessment.
  • Independently design and execute experiments, analyze, interpret and present experimental data.
