Full Time
To date, the collective research on transcription factors has been elusive to drug discovery. Flare Therapeutics, an early-stage biotech, has now reached a moment of light - with the prospect of forever changing the trajectory of how we treat disease. We are trailblazing the path to transcription factors by intervening at a previously hidden region we have identified as the 'switch site.' Join us and help illuminate the path to the possible.

In this role you will:

    • Contribute to the strategy, experimental design and execution of efforts to understand the effects of perturbation of transcription factors and to validate novel targets for further drug discovery investigation
    • Collaborate with chemistry and biochemistry colleagues to drive mechanistic understanding of small molecule modulators of transcription factors to improve compound efficacy for H2L and LO advancement
    • Interpret your data and regularly present to the scientific and management teams to inform data-driven decisions on future strategy

About you:

    • You have a MS or a PhD in molecular or cellular biology, or related field
    • You have 3+ years of related experience and a Strong track record of productivity and ability to drive scientific projects at the bench
    • You may have experience in oncology and/or transcriptional regulation 
    • You would consider yourself skilled in cutting edge molecular and cellular biology techniques
    • You may also have experience in omics data mining and analysis 
    • You consider yourself to be a self-starter with great ability to prioritize and balance multiple tasks, meet multiple deadlines, and thrive in a dynamically changing and fast-paced environment
    • You have strong communication skills, both written and verbal, including strong presentation skills
