Senior Scientist - Genomics & Bioinformatics - LifeSensors

Sr. Scientist - Cellular & Molecular Biology

USA, Pennsylvania, Malvern

Explore the frontiers of biology to make breakthrough discoveries with applications in drug discovery and diagnostics? Ubiquitin Proteasome System (UPS) provides a challenge as a new wave of drugs are emerging, such as PROtein TArgeting Chimeras (PROTACs) and Molecular Glues that target undruggable space. Senior Scientists are expected to develop innovative technologies to understand the role of ubiquitin in cell physiology. Our technologies are used worldwide by academic, pharma and biotech companies. The Senior Scientist will lead research programs to develop innovative technologies, execute drug discovery projects for our clients, as well as drive the development of new products and product applications. They will write scientific articles, patents, and present data at national and international meetings.
