Research Associate I/II, Neuromuscular and Cardiac Biology
What’s happening at Entrada Therapeutics? Our mission is simple and direct and that is to treat devastating diseases. Using our proprietary Endosomal Escape Vehicle (EEV) platform, we are advancing a diverse pipeline of oligonucleotide, enzyme, protein, and peptide programs to efficiently engage intracellular targets across multiple therapeutic areas. We’re a tight-knit team of experts and leaders in both therapeutics development and rare disease spaces -- our novel approach to drug design and delivery addresses several important challenges associated with the development of large and small molecule therapeutics, and represents a fundamental advancement in the field of intracellular therapeutics delivery.
With backing from 5AM Ventures, MPM Capital, Roche Venture Fund, MRL Ventures Fund, and Agent Capital, Entrada Therapeutics is excited to grow and attract colleagues who are ready to join a high energy, dedicated team that likes to get things done and dramatically improve the lives of patients and their families.
The perfect fit:
You should be versatile, self-motivated, and looking forward to rolling up your sleeves, as you will be involved in all aspects of neuromuscular and cardiac biology. Your team player mentality and excellent communication skills will allow you to collaborate effectively as you work alongside your team as well as cross-functionally.
In this position, you will be part of a cross-functional team exploring new therapeutic programs for neuromuscular and cardiovascular disease areas. You will play a critical role in the development and execution of molecular and cellular biology experiments which are critical to the success of our drug discovery programs. You will utilize cell-based disease models, and techniques such as PCR, Western blot, cell and tissue culture, and immunostaining (IHC, IF).
At Entrada, our passion for science, our devotion to patients and our values drive our behavior:
Humanity- We genuinely care about patients and about one another
Tenacity- We are relentless and persistent in the pursuit of developing therapies for patients
Creativity- We are creative problem solvers
Collaboration- We are more than the sum of our parts
Curiosity- We have a growth mindset and push conventional thought and theory
To thrive on our team, you will need to come with:
- Your B.S./M.S. in Molecular/Cellular biology or a related field with 2+ years of relevant academic or industry experience will have you ready to perform on our team
- It is highly desirable that you come with hands-on experience with in vitro models of skeletal/cardiac muscle
- We would love for you to have a foundational knowledge of skeletal/cardiac muscle biology, but by no means is it required!
- You should have excellent verbal and written communication skills– you will have a lot of opportunities to demonstrate this every day!
By becoming a team member here at Entrada, you’ll have access to competitive health, dental, and vision coverage, as well as life insurance, and short term and long-term disability insurance.
