Scientist, RNA Chemical Biology
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 drug discovery into new realms of biology by discovering and developing compounds that selectively target RNA. By targeting specific RNA structure/function relationships, Arrakis will generate drug candidates with novel mechanisms of action for high-value molecular targets that are challenging to address via traditional approaches in therapeutic indications with high unmet medical need.
It is critical to Arrakis’ mission to determine what RNA species are engaged by a given small molecule and what the structural and functional impacts of that interaction are on the RNA. To this end, we are building world-class chemical biology tools for interrogating RNA-small molecule interactions. 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.
