Clover Therapeutics – Scientist/Senior Scientist, Stem Cell Biology

Work location:  San Carlos, CA

Clover Therapeutics has built a large, re-contactable, and longitudinal patient community dedicated to developing precision medicine approaches for diseases of aging.  Our research platform combines genetics with deeply-phenotyped longitudinal patient populations to uncover the genetic basis of disease progression.  We pursue drug discovery programs with genetically-supported targets and develop companion diagnostics that match drug mechanisms with patient genetic risk profiles.

We are seeking a highly talented Scientist/Senior Scientist to lead our human iPSC platform. This role will develop iPSC-based in vitro models for target validation, biomarker discovery and diagnostics research.  Clover Therapeutics provides an exceptional research opportunity with a unique patient cohort with rich clinical data, machine learning technologies and computational resources to support our research activities.  This position offers an opportunity to join a dynamic growing team and contribute to the discovery and development of novel therapeutics. Ideal candidates will have expertise in human stem cell biology, iPSC differentiation protocols, cell-based assay development and project leadership.
