Research Associate/Senior Research, Antisense Oligonucleotide
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 a versatile, self-motivated, and looking forward to rolling up your sleeves, as you’ll be involved in all aspects of oligonucleotides, supporting efforts for antisense oligonucleotides, small interfering ribonucleic acids and gene editing platforms. You should be ready to support our team of drug discovery scientists as we design, prepare and characterize oligonucleotide constructs and carry out analytical assays for functional validation both in vitro and in vivo.
In this role you will have the opportunity to be involved in a lot of different aspects of our oligonucleotide work, for example processing and analyzing samples from in vitro and in vivo studies will be just one of your areas of work. You’ll be expected to work through techniques like RNA/protein extraction, RT-PCR, RT-qPCR, ELISA, and western blot. You’ll also have the opportunity to maintain and culture cell lines for in vitro studies, as well as developing and executing cell-based assays for validating biological activity of oligonucleotide therapeutics. Lastly, you’ll have the opportunity to prepare SOPs and other reports and publications.
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:
- At least 2+ years’ experience in a lab, and industry experience certainly doesn’t hurt.
- Your BS/MS in molecular biology, pharmacology, biochemistry or similar field will have you ready to perform at your best with us as you come with hands-on biochemistry experience with techniques like RT-PCR, qPCR, ELISA, fluorescence microscopy, cell culture and western blot
- We’re really hoping you have hands on experience with oligonucleotides and CRISPR editing
- To be effective on our team, we need you to bring excellent working knowledge and familiarity of graphic software and Microsoft Office.
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. We value work life balance, and you’ll benefit from discretionary time off and an excellent 401K package. We also offer a generous transportation stipend to commute as you wish.
