Who We Are

EvolveImmune Therapeutics is a next-generation immunotherapy platform company based in the Yale/New Haven biotechnology ecosystem with laboratories in Branford and Farmington, CT.  EvolveImmune is harnessing its ‘Immunology First’ approach to create first-in-category cancer medicines which aim to transform the lives of patients by delivering superior, long-term outcomes compared to current anti-cancer therapies. The EvolveImmune team has established a first-in-class and highly differentiated tumor-targeted T cell costimulation platform designed to re-invigorate adaptive immune responses in solid tumors.  In addition, building upon research that originated from the Sidi Chen Laboratory at Yale University, EvolveImmune is leveraging a novel in vivo CRISPR-based target discovery platform to develop a broad portfolio of first-in-class therapeutics for unmet needs in oncology and immune diseases.

 

The Role

We have a position open for a part-time biology intern.  The ideal candidate is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in a science discipline. This individual is good at following protocols, communicating with others, and keeping clear records of their work. Some laboratory experience is beneficial but not required.

 

We are looking for a candidate who enjoys working in a team and is excited to experience conducting science in a biotech environment. This is an exceptional opportunity for someone who is excited about drug target discovery and wants to supplement their studies with an industry experience.
