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. By targeting distinct RNA structures, Arrakis is generating drug candidates with novel mechanisms of action for molecular targets that are challenging to drug in therapeutic indications with high unmet need.
Bioinformatics and computational biology are critical parts of the Arrakis platform. We are developing novel, sequencing-based assays to investigate RNA structure and function and characterize the effects of small molecules on cellular RNAs. We are also employing a wide range of genomic data types to inform our target selection and therapeutic strategy.
We are seeking a scientist to further develop our computational platform by working closely with experimental scientists to analyze, interpret, and visualize data from novel assays related to RNA biology and compound treatment.
