Guardant Health is a leading precision oncology company focused
on helping conquer cancer globally through use of its proprietary
blood tests, vast data sets and advanced analytics. The Guardant
Health Oncology Platform leverages capabilities to drive commercial
adoption, improve patient clinical outcomes and lower healthcare
costs across all stages of the cancer care continuum. Guardant
Health has launched liquid biopsy-based Guardant360, Guardant360
CDx and GuardantOMNI tests for advanced stage cancer patients.
These tests fuel development of its LUNAR program, which aims to
address the needs of early stage cancer patients with neoadjuvant
and adjuvant treatment selection, cancer survivors with
surveillance, asymptomatic individuals eligible for cancer
screening and individuals at a higher risk for developing cancer
with early detection.
To enable Guardant Health to lead the disruption of cancer
treatments through non-invasive cancer screening, the Minimal
Residual Disease (MRD) program is seeking a highly motivated
Scientist to join the group's Sustaining & Process Improvement team
in the improvement and validation of novel technologies intended to
revolutionize early-detection of residual disease via
next-generation sequencing in a regulated environment. At Guardant,
we leverage the most advanced technologies and work with leaders in
many different fields to create the most impactful and meaningful
technologies for cancer management.
As a Scientist in the MRD technology organization, you will
interface with multiple teams including process engineering,
clinical operations, research operations, and bioinformatics. You
will be hands on in the lab and be required to design, improve,
implement, and validate new technologies related to liquid biopsy
sequencing assays for the early detection, treatment, and
monitoring of all cancer types. You will play a critical role in
developing the standards and metrics by which assay performance is
monitored and maintained, and be responsible for developing
existing assays as well as future product offerings.
Guardant's MRD program seeks to leverage our leadership in the
field of liquid biopsy to address a core unmet need in clinical
cancer care. Its success is being driven by a team of
highly-motivated experts such as yourself, passionate about the
potential to revolutionize the field of cancer diagnosis and
management thus saving patient lives.
