Research Associate/Sr. Research Associate, Translational Research (RA30-1)


Position Summary:

TScan Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotech seeking to revolutionize life-changing therapeutics for patients by identifying novel T cells and epitopes. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to join our Translational team as Research Associate/Senior Research Associate, supporting both pre-clinical and clinical-stage programs. The ideal candidate should have relevant experience in primary T cell culture, immunoassays, flow cytometry, and cancer biology, and enjoy exciting, collaborative, and vibrant startup culture. A team player with a sense of urgency will thrive in this role.


  • Analyze biospecimens from clinical trials using relevant assays (e.g., flow cytometry, ELISA, etc.)
  • Engage in efforts to advance the preclinical development of lead TCR candidates
  • Design, execution, and interpretation of analytical assays with TCR-engineered T cell products (e.g., flow cytometry, cytokine secretion, cytotoxicity assays)
  • Keep detailed electronic record of experimentations
  • Ability to learn new methods/techniques


  • BS with 0-5+ years of industry experience or MS with 0-2+ years of experience in biology, immunology, pharmacology, biochemistry, or related field
  • Comfortable working with minimal supervision
  • Experience with immunology and T cell biology preferred
  • Proficiency in multi-color flow cytometry
  • Proficiency in software for data analysis (Graphpad, Flowjo)
  • Experience with methods for cytokine quantification (ELISA, MSD) and clinical samples is a plus
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Enthusiasm and willingness to learn new techniques and work in a fast-paced environment

About TScan:

T-Scan 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.
