Participants will be mentored by renowned industry scientists and collaborators at AbbVie and focused on delivering cutting-edge advancements in discovery, development new treatment modalities. The enriching training program offers a balance of structured learning and work experience which fosters a learning environment to advance individual development with accessibility to high-level knowledge building across the drug development continuum. To be successful, we need outstanding individuals willing to challenge themselves to find the best solutions for our patients. The AbbVie Postdoctoral Program is one way we are doing just that. Through our Postdoctoral Program, we are hiring postdocs from key academic institutions for preferred areas of science in the U.S., while providing a unique opportunity for participants to build a solid career foundation in the pharmaceutical industry while building the AbbVie brand as an employer of choice for scientific talent. Participants in the Postdoctoral Program play an integral part in our continued success and will help us to further grow as a leader in our industry. The successful candidate will conduct novel and impactful research over a 2-3-year period. High-impact publications and presentations at scientific meetings are expected outcomes along with the opportunity to gain valuable experience working within a top-tier biopharmaceutical company. This assignment is expected to be for two years minimally and no more than three years. In its 4 th year since inception of the AbbVie Postdoctoral Program launch, we are looking to advance the Postdoctoral Program at AbbVie's Oncology hub in South San Francisco. In a collaborative, resource rich environment, you and your scientific mentor will be exploring, targeting, investigating and evaluating key areas of novel research with a publication as the end point. We have an exceptional postdoctoral opportunity within our Oncology Discovery reporting into a Principal Research Scientist studying the establishment and characterization of high throughput patient-derived organoids and drug response in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) within the Tumor Biology Group based in South San Francisco, California. Oncology is a key therapeutic area for AbbVie, with a portfolio consisting of three marketed products and a pipeline containing multiple promising new molecules that are being studied in nearly 200 clinical trials in 19 different types of cancer. AbbVie is expanding its oncology hub on the West Coast, with three sites in the San Francisco Bay Area (Redwood City, South San Francisco, and Sunnyvale) focused on the discovery and development of noveloncology therapies. More than 1,000 AbbVie scientists, statisticians, clinicians, and product developers with strong entrepreneurial roots work across these three sites. They combine their expertise in immuno-oncology, tumor initiating cells, and cell-signaling with their knowledge of bispecific antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), and covalent-inhibitor technologies to discover and develop novel cancer treatments. The research program for the postdoctoral position within the Tumor Biology group at the South San Francisco Oncology site is critical to the broader oncology preclinical strategy and is expected to deliver insights into biology relevant to disease modeling and therapeutic strategies. In addition to disease modeling, the research program will be relevant to developing an ex vivo modeling system that assists with identification and validation of drug discovery programs for next generation targeted therapies for Oncology.
