Incyte Career Opportunities

Translational Sciences

Career opportunities are available for Program Leaders in four therapeutic areas:

  • Leukemia - biology of human leukemias, including acute myelogenous leukemia
     
  • Lymphoma - biology of human lymphomas, including DLBCL, follicular mantle cell and marginal zone lymphoma
     
  • Immuno-oncology - the regulation of the immune response to tumors and in designing strategies to overcoming the resistance of tumors to immune elimination
     
  • Solid Tumors - biology of genetically driven human solid tumors

Incyte is committed to making a difference in the lives of patients through scientific discovery. Rigorous science is at the core of everything we do to discover, develop and deliver novel medicines that will meet serious unmet medical needs in oncology and other diseases.

Translational Sciences at Incyte has been established to bridge the research findings at the Discovery and Development levels within each of our clinical programs. In collaboration with academic, clinical and industrial scientists, this group utilizes the knowledge that has been developed around each of our existing programs to examine patient samples from human studies to validate specific target modulation, to identify biological changes that correlate with target modulation as well as study patient characteristics that could be utilized to predict response to therapy. The results are used to enrich and refine the Development program strategy as well as inform and guide future Discovery efforts.

The Translational Sciences group at Incyte is seeking an individual with an MD or PhD degree, or with equivalent experience, and 10-15 years of scientific training and experience in the fields of medicine, cell biology, immunology or molecular biology with particular expertise in one of four therapeutic areas:  Leukemia, Lymphoma, Immuno-oncology, or Solid Tumors.

Incyte is focused on developing targeted therapies and immune-oncology agents for cancer, and the individual will be responsible for developing novel biomarker strategies for use in human clinical studies. The individual will also have the opportunity to explore new technology platforms in collaboration with a number of internal and external investigators and implement these new strategies into human clinical trials. We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to work in a collaborative laboratory environment focused on pushing the boundaries of science in the context of interpreting human clinical studies. The position is located in Wilmington DE, with easy access to major east coast cities.

Responsibilities

  • Lead a world class translational research effort investigating a number of targeted agents and their application, alone or in combination, in the treatment of human leukemias, human lymphomas, or human solid tumors
  • Provide scientific expertise/direction and leadership to the Translational Sciences organization
  • Play an active role in the development and implementation of the biomarker plans for clinical studies
  • Responsibility for data review, analysis, and interpretation from a variety of sources and continual evaluation of the potential impact or research findings on Development projects

Requirements

  • Strong scientific background with a MD or Ph.D. and a demonstrated track record of performing excellent science
  • The candidate will need to be a dynamic and innovative scientist
  • Passion for exploration of human biology with the mission of developing methods to study the changes in tumor biology and in the immune system associated with administration of new medicines
  • Ability to balance execution of multiple tasks to accomplish program goals
  • An interest in working in and creating an environment of scientific curiosity and an open exchange of ideas
  • A high level of emotional intelligence and willing to work closely and collaboratively with other functional groups internal and external to the company
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills
