We are currently seeking a

(Senior) Scientist Translational Science*

as Translational Lead to strengthen our Translational Science team in the research and development of innovative cancer immunotherapeutic products.

You will work in an interdisciplinary environment at the interface of pre-clinical and clinical departments, preferably on-site our Tuebingen premises (Germany), but with the option to also work from home to a certain degree according to prior agreement. With your excellent scientific capabilities, you will contribute to the development of cancer immunotherapies, translating them from the pre-clinical phase into clinical development. You will independently research a wide range of scientific topics and support the preparation of documents for submission.
Your mission
In your role at Immatics you will take the function of a Translational and Correlative Studies Lead for early clinical stage development programs within cross-functional global project teams with a focus on our TCER® programs.

The Translational Lead function includes:

  • Striving for an optimal translational and clinical strategy for our drug candidates driven by your deep understanding of immunobiology, our product candidates, recent findings from the scientific field and competitors, and the addressed tumor indications.
  • Contributing to successful regulatory submissions, e.g., by authoring nonclinical sections in regulatory and clinical documents (i.e., briefing books, Investigator’s Brochures, Clinical Study Protocols).
  • Evaluating combination therapies and co-medications for our development programs (e.g., by in-depth literature analysis or in pre-clinical studies).

The Correlative Studies Lead function includes:

  • Taking responsibility for translating pre-clinical hypotheses into clinical biomarker strategies for the TCER® pipeline.
  • Overseeing cross-functional efforts to generate and analyze biomarker data derived from clinical trial samples.
  • Correlating clinical biomarker data with efficacy and safety measures to derive insights that inform research/ laboratory projects, new drug development strategies, and/ or diagnostic opportunities.
Your profile
You have successfully completed your doctorate in the field of life sciences, medicine, pharmacy, or a comparable education with a strong focus on immunology and/ or oncology. You have a minimum experience of 2-3 years (Scientist level) or 3-5 years (Senior Scientist level) in translational and clinical science as post-doc and/ or in the biopharmaceutical industry with suitable research focus in the field of bispecifics and/ or antibodies. You have a strong science driven analytical and structured thinking and the ability to drive projects in a cross-functional environment. Experience in early drug development, regulatory requirements, medical and scientific writing are favorable.

You see your personal challenge in implementing cutting-edge science into real-world clinical trial settings to contribute to making Immatics’ immunotherapies a success story for the benefit of cancer patients. Based on your scientific expertise and background, you are eager to work with various R&D departments to translate lead drug candidates into successful clinical development.
