Job Description:

On January 11, 2021, we announced our intent to separate our severe genetic disease and oncology businesses into differentiated and independent publicly traded companies. We will retain focus on severe genetic disease (SGD) and will launch our oncology business ("Oncology Newco") as a new entity, with the completed transition expected by the end of 2021. ABOUT THE NEST At bluebird, only two things matter - patients and our people. When you join the nest, you're not just landing a new gig, you become a part of a flock that's soaring to new heights.

Our innovation and sustainability are rooted in the diversity of our teams and results are achieved through cooperation and the incorporation of multiple points of view. This is personal and we approach every challenge with radical care. The time is now to rise up and recode the science, the systems, and the status quo. ABOUT THE FLOCK Do you have excellent attention to detail? Are you an ardent learner who is always looking to expand your knowledge? Are you self-motivated and have the right 'get-it-done' attitude?

--HOW YOU'LL FLY As a Senior Manager/Associate Director lab lead, reporting to the Head of Translational Bioassays,--you'll help to bring more patients their bluebird days by:

    • Strong experience with assay development, particularly experience in qualification and validation of bioassays, e.g. biomarkers, flow cytometry, cell-based methods, molecular methods, PD, PK, , ADA and laboratory developed tests (LDT).
    • Significant experience and working knowledge of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
    • Experience managing direct reports and outside vendors as well as the ability to work successfully in a team-oriented environment.
