The Position

We are seeking a talented Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Agard Lab within the Department of Antibody Engineering at Genentech. The lab develops novel antibody technologies to define therapeutic targets and modify their activities.  We focus on using multivalent and multispecific antibodies to impact biological processes not addressable with traditional IgGs.  We are particularly interested in the regulation of post-translational modifications including therapeutic agonism and avidity-driven signaling and degradation. The fellow will reside within the department of Antibody Engineering and have access to scientists within the department and throughout Genentech’s organization, including our thriving postdoc community.
