Position Overview:
  • At Client, we are inspired by a single vision – transforming patients' lives through science. In oncology, hematology, immunology and cardiovascular disease – and one of the most diverse and promising pipelines in the industry – each of our passionate colleagues contribute to innovations that drive meaningful change. We bring a human touch to every treatment we pioneer. Join us and make a difference.
  • The Oncogenesis Thematic Research Center (TRC) at Client is one of the fundamental research and early development engines delivering therapeutics to cancer patients, integrating early discovery research through translational and early clinical development.
  • Our modality focuses on numerous aspects of protein homeostasis including the ubiquitin-proteasome system, protein translation, and RNA processing and stability allowing the group to capitalize on the cutting edge science that underpins the action of the company's most advanced drugs. Pioneering research around these modalities creates a very dynamic, exciting and creative environment that exploits excellent science in biology, biochemistry, structural biology, computational biology and translational development.
  • The Discovery Biology group within the Oncogenesis (TRC) focuses on delivering Client cancer therapeutics by engaging E3 ubiquitin ligases for targeted protein degradation.
  • We are seeking a highly motivated Scientist with strong background in tumor biology and understanding of the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) to participate in the discovery of Client targeted protein degradation drugs for hematology oncology projects.
  • The successful candidate will work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary environment to 1) explore disease biology enabling identification of Client drug targets; 2) develop and implement robust cellular assays to support discovery of small molecules as clinical development candidates; 3) design and execute research strategies that further our understanding of the mechanisms of Client compounds and targets; and 4) develop collaboration and interact with external partners relevant to the target discovery efforts.
  • Responsibilities include utilizing disease models to design target validation studies and relevant assays in support of SAR, mechanism of action, mechanisms of resistance, biomarker selection, and disease positioning. The successful candidate will work within discovery project teams and with scientists across different functional areas and be expected to present her or his work at project team meetings and to research leadership.
