Who we are:
Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to understand the biology of aging, and to help people to lead longer and healthier lives. We aim to combine the best biomedical science with cutting edge technology and computing.
The immune system lies at the heart of many diseases of aging, including cancer, autoimmunity, and many neurodegenerative diseases. Calico is seeking a talented biologist who is excited to help understand key aspects of the adaptive immune system and their contribution to diseases of aging. In this project, you will work within a highly collaborative scientific team focused on exploring the mechanisms by which antigens are presented on the cell surface and recognized by immune cells. You will play a leading role in the design and implementation of cutting-edge, scalable assays that measure key aspects of the adaptive immune system, and in the interpretation of the scientific conclusions from these data. You will collaborate with top computational researchers to develop novel analytical methods and construct predictive models for antigen presentation and recognition, with the goal of eventual therapeutic interventions.
