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 (“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 Head of Cellular Screening has the unique opportunity to create a vision and implement strategy that will make a major impact on the emerging RNA/rSM field. The successful candidate will report to the SVP Discovery and lead a group of up to 6 scientists and/or associate scientists. The remit of this group is to enable validation, automation, and execution of new cell-based assays in support of Arrakis programs.
The ideal candidate is a strong leader and skilled manager and 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.
