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.
We are seeking a chemical biologist to join our fast-paced multidisciplinary rSM drug discovery team. This key hire will enjoy a collaborative multidisciplinary start-up environment with integrity and innovation being central to our culture and mission. The ideal candidate would have a strong synthetic background to enable the rapid synthesis of chemical biology probes and tool compounds, as well as experience with target identification and target engagement methodologies. This is an opportunity to contribute to a cutting-edge drug discovery platform and fulfill a vital high impact function in our fast-growing company.
