The Roche Innovation Center Zurich is active in the research and development of engineered therapeutic antibodies, with a focus on the fields of cancer immunotherapy and immunotherapy in general. Part of the Roche Group since 2005, it employs about 180 people.

The candidate will join the Cancer Immunotherapy (CIT) 2 Department at Roche Innovation Center Zürich (Schlieren, Switzerland) and will interact closely with the team of scientists and research associates working on in depth characterization of tumours and development
of novel class of cancer immunotherapy agents.

Primary human tumor explants are considered as one of the most relevant pre-clinical tumor models to assess the activity of portfolio assets. Therefore, the candidate will focus on the optimization of ex vivo primary human tumor explant models and assessing of their predictive potential of clinical response.

This is a collaborative project for 2 years sponsored by the Center of Excellence for Human Translational Bioengineering (HTB). The position is temporary for 1 year with the option to extend to 2 years.

The principal responsibilities will include:

· Supporting the work of scientists to compare different systems enabling ex vivo tumor explant cultures in 3D, improvement of conditions to enable longer culture times and increase of viability of tumor, stroma and immune cells
· Processing of untreated and treated primary human tumor and blood samples for downstream analysis, including the assessment of tumor cell lysis, immune cell activation and proliferation using the following technologies: FACS sorting, multiparametic flow cytometry (> 12 colors) or CyTOF, single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq), LDH release, IHC and Imaging, CBA
· Data analysis and interpretation, preparation of scientific presentations
· Writing of scientific reports, patents and research articles
· Laboratory manager responsibilities including daily lab routine, ordering supplies, monitoring inventory will also be required

· Excellent hands-on experience in state-of-the art immunoprofiling techniques for functional characterization of immune responses (FACS-based cell sorting, multiparametric FACS analysis of tumor and immune cells is a must; experience with single RNA sequencing, CyTOF, IF, imaging, spatial-omics and high dimensional data analysis is a plus)
· Good written and verbal English is mandatory
· Strong communication and presentation skills
· Ability to work effectively and independently within a diverse group of people
