Palleon Pharmaceuticals is seeking a highly motivated immunologist to join the Biology/Immunology team to advance novel therapeutics to treat cancer and inflammatory diseases. This scientist will play a key role in exploring novel biology, performing target validation, and contributing to the discovery and development of novel immunotherapies. The successful candidate will have a strong background in immunology or immuno-oncology and will be able to work independently and effectively in a collaborative team environment.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Design and implement molecular, cellular, immunological, and genomics experiments for target discovery and validation.
  • Design, develop, and optimize biochemistry and cell-based assays for lead discovery and optimization.
  • Propose hypothesis-driven experiments based on internal data and published findings, and make data-driven decisions.
  • Perform complex experiments independently, following best practices and generating consistent high-quality results.
  • Analyze and interpret data, troubleshoot, and document experiments.
  • Manage external CROs that are performing preclinical pharmacology studies.
  • Facilitate key project decisions by delivering data in a timely manner.
  • Work independently and collaboratively in a team environment.
  • Keep up-to-date with relevant literature.
  • Communicate and present findings effectively at project meetings.



  • Ph.D. in immunology, molecular and cellular biology, or cancer biology with hands-on experience in immunology or cancer immunology in a relevant academic or industrial setting, and a proven track record of publications.
  • Hands-on experience in a wide range of ex vivo and in vitro experiments, including basic cellular and molecular biology, primary immune cell culture and functional assays, multicolor flow cytometry, and ELISA.
  • Ability to creatively solve complex problems and independently design and execute well-controlled experiments.
  • Willingness to adapt to a fast-paced work environment, and ability to work both independently and collaboratively within project teams.
  • Ability to work flexibly and reliably on several concurrent research projects with good attention to detail, and willingness to adjust plans/priorities as needed.
  • Strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills.
  • Experience with data analysis software, such as FlowJo and GraphPad Prism.
  • Hands-on experience isolating, phenotyping, and manipulating primary human and murine immune cells, and performing downstream analyses such as activation, proliferation, differentiation, cytotoxicity, co-culture assays, and target cell killing is preferred.
  • Hands-on experience with the design and interpretation of various in vivo preclinical models of cancer or inflammatory diseases is preferred.
  • Deep knowledge and expertise in T cell immunology, innate immunology, immunometabolism, or tumor microenvironment is a plus.
  • Experience using functional annotation tools, genomics, or proteomics databases for target identification and prioritization is a plus.
