Director New Product Planning (NPP40-1)



TScan Therapeutics is a biotechnology company seeking to revolutionize cancer treatment for patients by identifying novel targets for T cell therapy. We are leveraging our core discovery technology through both internal discovery efforts in oncology and external partnerships across oncology, infectious disease, and autoimmune disease. We are seeking a Director New Product Planning to support our corporate development and strategy team. This role will work with a small team that has strong visibility and high impact across the organization. Activities will include transaction support, market research, competitive intelligence, and forecasting.  A team player who enjoys a fast-paced, collaborative, and vibrant startup culture will thrive in this role.


TScan Therapeutics was founded in 2018 by a small group of scientists led by Dr. Stephen Elledge (Harvard Medical School/HHMI). TScan is discovering and developing novel TCR-engineered T cell therapies for the treatment of cancer. TScan’s discovery platform is centered around a breakthrough technology that enables the rapid, comprehensive, and genome-wide identification of the peptide antigen targets of T cell receptors. This technology greatly enhances our ability to understand the specific antigens that drive important disease processes, including tumor cell recognition by the immune system, self-reactivity in autoimmune disorders, and acquired immunity in infectious disease. TScan is using the platform in oncology to discover new TCR/target pairs and to rapidly move novel TCRs into clinical development.
