We are seeking a highly innovative and motivated anatomic pathologist to join the gRED Research Pathology Department as a Scientist / Senior Scientist / Principal Scientist position (rank equivalent to assistant / associate / full professor in academia). This pathologist will support our expanding emphasis on digital pathology, image analysis, and machine learning. This position will have a focus on generating novel biological insights from pathologic tissue samples using advanced AI and image analysis techniques on histological and single and highly multiplexed in situ protein and RNA assays.
The candidate will bring additional digital pathology expertise into our division, have an interest in working within a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment (including bioinformatics, oncology, immunology, neuroscience, image analysis, and biomarker development), and have the ability to forge strong links with individual contributors and cross-functional teams, providing consultative expertise and pathologic interpretation for translational applications of tissue-based assays. This role requires leadership in experimental design, supervised implementation, and morphologic interpretation of features extracted from tissue in the context of the current molecular and cellular biology concepts. Opportunities exist for outstanding candidates to advance Genentech’s drug discovery and development programs through independent research, supported by a team of histopathology scientific researchers.
The Department of Research Pathology is embedded within Genentech’s Research and Early Development (gRED) Organization, and works to ensure that strategies for the treatment and cure of disease are based on accurate analyses of pathogenic mechanisms. The Department pathologists collaborate with and provide expert pathology support to research scientists in the discovery, characterization, and preclinical development of novel therapeutic products for a variety of human diseases. These include diseases caused by malignant transformation, or dysfunction of the nervous or immune systems. The scientist support effort includes participation on teams devoted to the development of predictive and prognostic markers in many of these diseases. At Genentech, our scientists have access to cutting edge equipment and techniques, and pathology core laboratory facilities and personnel. The core laboratories include necropsy, histology, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization, clinical pathology, tissue banking, translational tissue technologies, and advanced light microscopy, including confocal microscopy, electron microscopy, and digital pathology.
