Research & Development (R&D) Intern
As the leader in RNA Cell Therapy and the 2022 Emerging Life Sciences Company of the Year in Maryland, Cartesian is offering an internship position to highly motivated candidates with a strong interest in cell & gene therapy. Our highly integrated approach is a rare find in biotech; it means that discovery, cGMP manufacturing, and clinical operations all happen under one roof. Team members learn and grow through exposure to an immersive experience. A sense of family stems from close, cross-functional, and continuous conversation with highly committed colleagues. The result is fast-paced innovation, leading to next-generation therapies for our patients. It also offers our interns an unparalleled perspective in how a drug gets from discovery, through clinical trials, and eventually to market. The ideal candidate has a strong background in the life sciences, is interested in basic and clinical research, is willing to work hard, is intellectually curious and willing to ask lots of questions, and has long-term career goals in biomedical entrepreneurship, biotechnology, or patient care.
Interns can be working towards or have already obtained a 4-year bachelor's degree from an accredited university and must be willing to move to Maryland for at least one year, for full-time work.
Interns will be working closely with MD/PhDs to develop assays, perform wet-lab benchwork, and present data to the team.
