Scientist/Senior Scientist, Genentech Research Biochemical and Cellular Pharmacology

We have an opening for a talented Scientist/Senior Scientist to join our Biochemical and Cellular Pharmacology Department at Genentech. The candidate will function as part of various multi-disciplinary teams covering the large molecule research portfolio across the therapeutic areas spanning early stage research to final IND candidate, with a potential focus on neuroscience. The successful candidate will have broad research responsibilities involving bioanalytical tools for characterizing and quantitating oligonucleotide, protein, peptide or conjugated therapeutics, as well as monitoring hypothesis-driven biomarkers. Responsibilities include developing and implementing in vitro high-throughput functional screening and in vivo pharmacokinetic (biodistribution and biotransformation) and pharmacodynamic assays. For pharmacokinetic studies, defining strategies for incorporating in vitro assays that translate to in vivo systems will be critical. The role will involve identifying, conceiving and working with advanced analytical technologies as well as routinely innovating and pushing technological limits to support the evolving large molecule portfolio. In addition, building and enhancing the infrastructure through automating instrumentation, data analysis and informatic workflows will be key to success. The individual will be expected to provide strategic input representing department function in lead finding/optimization and bioanalytical efforts for advancing therapeutic candidates. The role will involve working extensively with contract research organizations, external collaborators and may also involve managing contingent and/or full-time researchers.


  • Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Pharmacology or a related field with postdoctoral or industry experience (0+ years for Scientist/4+ years for Senior Scientist).

  • Experience with oligonucleotide/protein/peptide quantitation and characterization involving immunoaffinity, separations, chromatography, mass spectrometry, spectroscopy and other molecular biology techniques.

  • Proven track record of scientific accomplishments and high profile publications is required.

  • Practical experience in the design, development, validation and execution of bioanalytical tools for characterization and quantitation of biomolecules is required.

  • Familiar with multi-disciplinary activities in large molecule drug discovery involving in vitro functional screening, in vivo pharmacokinetics (biotransformation and biodistribution) and pharmacodynamics.

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills is required.

  • Experience with automating instrumentation and data processing would be advantageous.

  • Drive for conceiving and implementing highly innovative analytical tools would be advantageous.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with large molecule drug discovery research for indications in neuro and/or other disease areas.

  • In-depth hands-on knowledge in large molecule bioanalysis using mass spectrometry, immunohistochemistry, capillary electrophoresis.

  • In-depth or working knowledge in PK/PD/efficacy animal models and animal tissue manipulation to enable various downstream analysis (e.g. therapeutic and biomarker quantitation).

  • Working knowledge in molecular and/or cellular analytics such as PCR, flow cytometry, genomic sequencing.
