Do you have the passion to join a group whose mission is to pioneer the discovery of a new class of medicines to treat diseases unaddressed by today’s therapies? Does it excite you to be a part of a company with a focus on cancer and genetically validated targets in other disease areas with unmet medical need? If yes, you may be a great fit to join Arrakis on our path to bring powerful new therapies to millions of patients.
Your Impact at Arrakis
The mission of Arrakis Therapeutics is to extend small molecule medicines into new realms of biology by discovering and developing compounds that selectively target RNA (“rSM”). By targeting distinct RNA structure/function relationships, Arrakis is generating drug candidates with novel mechanisms of action for molecular targets that are challenging to drug in disease areas with high unmet medical need. Identifying functional elements of the transcriptome that can be targeted by rSMs and establishing mechanism of action requires integrating data across multiple sources.
This role will lead efforts to extract and integrate biological insights from various types of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Leveraging your deep knowledge of data science tools and expertise with large biological datasets, you will drive innovative science to deliver novel therapeutics to patients. The ideal candidate will enjoy working in a collaborative, fast-paced start-up environment, leveraging a high degree of scientific rigor, creativity and innovation.
