Senior Research Associate (SRA), External Collaborations (115)

REQ: 115

CERo Therapeutics, Inc., is a privately held biopharmaceutical company pioneering cell-based therapies that incorporate multiple forms of tumor clearance into single cells. The company’s core technology platform engineers T cells to express immune receptors called chimeric engulfment receptors (CERs) that enable T cells to target, induce cellular damage, uptake tumor antigen, and remove tumor cells. This approach effectively unites the anti-tumor attributes of both innate and adaptive immune responses into a single T cell product. Our vision is a new class of cell-based medicines with the potential for more complete and durable anti-tumor responses, while maintaining a favorable toxicity profile across multiple cancer indications.

We are seeking a highly motivated SRA, External Collaborations to support ongoing and future pharma and academic scientific collaborations. The successful candidate will perform laboratory-based research activities intended to functionally characterize novel engineered autologous T cell products for the treatment of solid tumors. The candidate will be expected to aid in experimental design and perform hypothesis-driven experiments to support both established and new pre-clinical external collaborations.


  • Ability and desire to collaborate in experimental design, perform and assist in management of experiments
  • Knowledge to support phenotypic and functional characterization of engineered T cells
  • Positively engage cross-functionally with internal research teams and external collaborators to support pre-clinical product characterization
  • Aid in troubleshooting technical issues and recommend data-driven corrective actions based on observation and supportive literature searches
  • Desire to work with collaborators to co-ordinate methodology and sample analysis
  • Ability to interpret experimental outcomes and support presentation of results in internal meetings


  • Preferred BA/BS 4 years or MA/MS 2 years
  • Proficiency in routine laboratory procedures including PCR, Flow Cytometry and multiparametric ELISA
  • Direct experience with T-cell functional characterization assays including in vitro cytotoxicity, proliferation, and cytokine/chemokine evaluation
