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 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. The Arrakis platform is being built to drug RNA structures with small molecules targeting many aspects of RNA biology.
The successful person in this role will be a key contributor to therapeutic rSM discovery through the development and validation of cell-based assays to support small molecule screening efforts and biological evaluation of therapeutic targets modulated by rSMs. The ideal candidate will enjoy working in a collaborative, fast-paced start-up environment, leveraging a high degree of problem-solving and troubleshooting skills to make a large impact on our mission. They will be part of a team with diverse expertise in cell and molecular biology and will also have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across the organization.
