Do you have the passion to join a group whose mission is to pioneer the discovery of a new drug class to treat diseases unaddressed by today’s medicines? 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.
It is critical to Arrakis’ mission to determine structural features of our RNA targets and to identify druggable RNA structural motifs. To this end, we are building world-class chemical probing tools coupled with next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies for characterizing RNA structures inside living cells and in vitro in a high throughput manner. By developing and applying these methods, the Scientist will have an opportunity to advance the burgeoning field of RNA-targeted drug discovery. The ideal candidate will enjoy working in a collaborative, fast-paced start-up environment, leveraging a high degree of integrity, intelligence and innovation to make a large impact on our mission.
