About Abalone Bio
Abalone Bio is a San Francisco Bay Area, discovery-stage biotechnology company developing antibody drugs for G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), ion channels and other membrane protein targets. We are developing our own therapeutics as well as partnering with pharmaceutical companies to discover drug candidates for their targets.
What makes our core technology different? Our cell-based discovery platform directly selects for antibodies that alter target function, rather than just binding to it. We use next-gen sequencing and computational analysis to find ultra-rare functional antibody drug candidates. In this way, we can tackle diseases in ways that no one else can.
We’ve used our platform to develop a panel of novel anti-inflammatory antibody drug candidates that we are starting to test in a variety of animal disease models, and are developing candidates against other high-value targets.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-driven science-lover who wants to be part of a fun and hardworking startup team. A team player who relates well with others, comfortable with a rapidly changing, demanding startup atmosphere. Good judgment in prioritizing experiments and other responsibilities, ability to learn new things quickly, and careful record keeping, are essential. Finally, we continuously strive to improve ourselves and our work, and are looking for people who share the desire to make themselves and the world around them better.
What do we offer?
Compensation commensurate with qualifications, including competitive salary, stock options, health, dental and vision coverage, and a retirement plan.
Our facilities are in the East Bay (Richmond, CA). We are fully equipped for molecular biology, microbiology, tissue culture, flow cytometry and cell based assays work.
The Scientist will join a small cross-functional R&D team, report to the Chief Scientific Officer, and work closely with other Abalone Bio team members.
At least weekly, the full team discusses experimental results, future plans and priorities. In our meetings, we emphasize respect, inclusiveness, crisp logic and openness.
Advisors and consultants routinely interact with the lab scientists, in the lab, by email or in meetings.
The growth and development of everyone in the team is an important priority for us. Founders hold regular one-on-one meetings with all team members to ensure that they are well-informed and that their concerns are being heard and addressed, and to support individually tailored career development paths.
