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 (RNA small molecules, or “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.
In this role, you will derive genomic insights from large next-gen sequencing (NGS) datasets that probe various aspects of the mRNA lifecycle (e.g. transcription, splicing, translation). These insights will be used to support an integrative data-driven approach to identifying functional and druggable RNA elements, to evaluate rSM mechanisms of action, and to help guide a multidisciplinary team to test specific hypotheses. Your work will sit at the intersection of molecular RNA biology, cellular biology, and genomics, and at Arrakis you will have numerous opportunities to collaborate with and learn from experts in these fields and others.
