Associate Director/Director Pathology


Seattle Genetics is seeking an investigative anatomic pathologist with exceptional scientific curiosity, critical thinking, and self-motivation to join its team of non-clinical scientists. You will be part of a vibrant and experienced group leading the scientific understanding of the safety of novel therapeutics in a company dedicated to finding cures to cancer.  Interpretation, integration, and assessment of significance of your data in the context of multiple other scientific investigators both internally and externally are critical. You will have significant autonomy to propose and drive investigative and mechanistic understanding of observed toxicities. Your communication skills at all levels of interaction must be excellent. This is a pivotal role in the department reporting to the VP Non-Clinical Sciences and you will be expected to contribute significantly to growing the pathology expertise within the department. In addition, you will serve as a non-clinical representative on project teams and may have opportunity to serve as a program lead on early projects.


  • Assist in developing and delivering an over-arching strategy for the delivery of anatomic pathology, which may include internal resource and/or external partners
  • Aid in the development of a forward facing vision of the non-clinical sciences department, and support implementation of this vision
  • Provide internal expertise to understand the mechanisms of toxicity observed non-clinically and/or clinically in order to drive mitigation and/or back up strategies to minimize harm to patients
  • Build collaborative networks internal and external to the company to ensure rapid communication and cross functional investigation of emerging safety issues
  • Present data and interpretations in written and oral form to regulatory bodies to enable optimal clinical development and registration of novel drugs
  • Act as a non-clinical team representative responsible for the non-clinical safety strategy of novel target/therapeutic candidates. Your ability to understand the toxicity of the platform versus target related toxicities is key
  • Develop strong knowledge of the basic biology of the intended target of drug candidates
  • Represent Seattle Genetics in the external scientific environment – influencing partners and regulators in a positive way
