Posted 4 months ago

Job Description:

The Biological Chemistry (BC) group is an early stage drug discovery team within Oncology research at NIBR, focused on understanding and exploiting the molecular mechanisms of novel cancer targets for the discovery, characterization and optimization of small molecule therapeutics. We are seeking a highly motivated, creative and collaborative scientist to join our team in a hands-on role to discover the next generation of innovative cancer treatments.

Responsibilities for the role include:

  • Functional and mechanistic characterization of enzymes, substrates, and multi-protein complexes.

  • Design, development, and troubleshooting of diverse biochemical and biophysical assays for use in the assessment of both mechanism and small molecule modulation of cancer targets, including hit identification, validation, and optimization.

  • Analysis, interpretation, documentation, and presentation of data to the BC group and multidisciplinary project teams.

  • Assessment of emerging technologies with an emphasis towards the implementation of new experimental techniques enabling drug discovery.

  • Contribution to group organization, productivity, and expertise through collaboration and idea exchange.

VIEW JOBS 1/17/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-04-17T00:00 <div><strong>COMPANY DESCRIPTION</strong><br /> Tango is an exciting oncology startup launched by Third Rock Ventures, one of Boston’s premier biotech funding groups. Our focus is on exploiting synthetic lethal interactions to discover and develop new breakthrough cancer therapies.<br />  </div> <div> <div>Our discovery efforts begin and end with patients. We invert the traditional discovery paradigm by putting patient selection before target identification. We use deep DNA sequencing and CRISPR-based screening to identify novel targets for specific subgroups of cancer patients. Our goal is to leverage the principles of synthetic lethality to find novel weaknesses in cancer cells and use them to provide a roadmap to cures. As we advance our molecules into the clinic, our trials will enroll the patients most likely to benefit from our new treatments; thereby enabling greater speed, success, and impact for those patients. We’re proud to have been named a “Fierce 15” company in 2017 and a finalist for Xconomy’s Startup of the Year award in 2018.<br /> <br /> <strong>JOB DESCRIPTION</strong><br /> Tango Therapeutics is seeking an enthusiastic and highly self-motivated research associate to join our Biochemistry group. You will be an integral member of a dynamic and multidisciplinary drug discovery team dedicated to developing drugs for a novel class of therapeutics. The successful candidate will be responsible for generating high-quality data to support early drug discovery activities including hit finding, validation and optimization.  You will also be involved in mechanism of inhibition studies and presenting summarized data to different teams. <br /> <br /> <strong>Job Responsibilities</strong></div> </div> <ul> <li style="padding: 0;
