Co-op T cell Immunology and Process Development

Become a member of the BioNTech Family!

Based in Cambridge, MA and Gaithersburg, MD. We are committed to improving the health of people worldwide with our fundamental research and our work in the area of development of immunotherapies utilizing the full potential of the immune system to fight cancer, infectious diseases and other serious diseases. We believe in scientific rigor, innovation and passion as driving forces. BioNTech was founded by scientists and physicians to translate science into survival by combining fundamental research and operational excellence.

With decades of deep immunology expertise and experience in developing and optimizing mRNA as part of its broad suite of novel technologies, the company is working with the global community to defeat life-threatening and serious diseases such as cancer, COVID-19, malaria and tuberculosis. The first ever approved mRNA vaccine was created in the labs of BioNTech in Mainz, Germany. A fully integrated immunotherapy powerhouse. We remain focused on bringing our broad pipeline of next-generation immunotherapies and vaccines to people around the world to address cancer, infectious diseases, as well as a growing list of other medical conditions. To accomplish this, we continue to be deeply rooted in science and academic research while also having built a fully integrated, global immunotherapy company with cGMP and GMP manufacturing facilities anchored around deep expertise in immunology and complemented by an expanding set of capabilities.


Co-op T cell Immunology and Process Development



In this role, the Co-op will be empowered to help design and execute experimental processes to establish complex immune cell-based assays and use CRISPR technology and next-generation sequencing to advance our knowledge in understanding T cell dysfunction in suppressive tumor microenvironment. Key objective would be establishing mechanisms of action of novel T cell targets. As part of a multi-disciplinary team, our Co-op will also partner with the Process Development team to work on translating the exciting research into manufacturing processes used for clinical supply."
