Why Join Intellia?

Our mission is to develop curative genome editing treatments that can positively transform the lives of people living with severe and life-threatening diseases.

Beyond our science, we live our four core values: One, Explore, Disrupt, Deliver and feel strongly that you can achieve more at Intellia. We have a single-minded determination to excel and succeed together. We believe in the power of curiosity and pushing boundaries. We welcome challenging thoughts and imagination to develop innovative solutions. And we know that patients are counting on us to make the promise a reality, so we must maintain high standards and get it done.

We want all of our people to go beyond what is possible. We aren’t constrained by typical end rails, and we aren’t out to just “treat” people. We’re all in this for something more. We’re driven to cure and motivated for change. Just imagine the possibilities of what we can do together.

How you will Achieve More with Intellia:

Intellia is look for a Director, Genotoxicity Regulatory Lead to support the advancement of genome editing products into the clinic. Within this leadership role, you will support the in vivo and cell therapy development programs in genotoxicity strategy and implementation. This is a highly visible leadership position serving on multiple therapeutic program teams supporting regulatory filings and documentation, as well as interacting with health authorities. In this role you will:

  • Serve as SME for genotoxicity assessment in support of in vivo and cell therapy development program advancement to the clinic

  • Effectively interact with other functional area experts in a program team environment to develop overall genotoxicity assessment strategy and defend those recommendations to internal governance committees

  • Partner with toxicology on strategy and guidance for genetic safety assessment for gene editing approaches

  • Work closely with Genomic Innovation to align on genotox testing strategy for research programs headed to development candidate nomination

  • Stay current on regulatory requirements for genome editing therapies and assess new technologies

  • Work closely with NGS production, Quality and PreClinical Genotox for compliant execution of genotoxicity data packages in support of regulatory filings and clinical programs

  • Partner with computational biology and software engineering on effective approaches for data capture, structuring, analysis and delivery

  • Partner with regulatory, clinical, and program team leads to support regulatory filings

  • Interact with Health Authorities, in writing and verbally, including pre-submission (e.g., pre-IND), scientific advice filings, IND or CTA, meeting briefing books, or other requests from global regulatory authorities

  • Serve as external SME for genotoxicity assessment for CRISPR based products presenting at conferences, interacting with pre-competitive consortia, and supporting and writing manuscripts focused on genotoxicity methods and justification

About You:

The Director, Regulatory Genomics will have demonstrated expertise in regulatory writing and strategy as well as health authority interactions both written and verbal with a focus on genomics and genotoxicity evaluation. Experience in supporting gene editing therapies into the clinic with a focus on genotoxicity is required. Additionally, experience with toxicology, NGS, sequencing methodologies, molecular biology, and gene editing approaches is preferred.

  • PhD with 10 years directly related industry experience.

  • Experience in writing and documentation to support regulatory filings as well as response to health authority questions and interacting with health authorities.

Meet your future team:

You will be an SME for genotoxicity and gene editing products working closely with Computational Biology, Toxicology, Genomics Innovation and PreClinical Genotox to support the development of genome editing based therapeutics into the clinic. We are accountable for enabling our programs in early research to reach development candidate nomination through regulatory filing and into clinical trials.

In this key leadership role, you will report directly to the Vice President, Genomic Operations who instills a culture of teamwork, respect, inclusion, collaboration, and communication ensuring that each team member strives to reach their professional and personal potential.
