Cartography Biosciences is a therapeutics organization creating the first atlas to identify targets that are specific enough to only engage cancerous cells, broad enough to work across cancer cells and patients, and safe enough to sidestep toxic side effects. Founded by Kevin Parker, Howard Chang, and Ansu Satpathy, Cartography is bridging immunology and computation to understand the critical differences between normal and cancerous cells, ultimately solving the challenge of finding the safest, most selective targets for a variety of immunotherapeutic approaches. 

About the position:
We looking for a research associate to play a major role in the development of new approaches

What You'll Do:
- Design and execute parallel affinity-based selections on cells.
- Work with a multidisciplinary team to screen and evaluate selections from in vitro phage / yeast
selection schemes.
