ISAR Bioscience GmbH is a newly foun­ded trans­la­tional research com­pany in Planegg near Munich, sup­por­ted by the State of Bavaria. 

Our research focuses on degen­er­at­ive dis­eases of the brain (Alzheimer’s), the heart (infarc­tion, car­diac fail­ure) and the immune sys­tem. We use human induced pluri­po­tent stem cell (iPS) tech­no­lo­gies to develop dis­ease mod­els for the dis­cov­ery of novel drugs and cell ther­apies. In doing so, we enter into stra­tegic part­ner­ships with research insti­tu­tions and indus­trial companies.

We are look­ing for an exper­i­enced sci­ent­ist to join our man­age­ment team (full-time pos­i­tion). You will join a vibrant and grow­ing start-up com­pany which is devel­op­ing novel thera­peutic agents based on dis­ease mod­els using immune cells and human induced pluri­po­tent stem cells (hiPSC). You will scout for, estab­lish and develop cut­ting edge research tech­no­lo­gies, and you will organ­ize and develop our research infrastructure.
