About Revolution Medicines

REVOLUTION Medicines discovers and develops new drugs that harness the therapeutic potential of frontier oncology targets on behalf of cancer patients. Our innovative product engine draws inspiration from nature and evolution, which offer insights into cancer targets, disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches.

Job Description

Revolution Medicines is a clinical-stage precision oncology company focused on developing novel targeted therapies to inhibit high-value frontier targets in RAS-addicted cancers.  The company’s R&D pipeline comprises RAS(ON) Inhibitors designed to suppress diverse oncogenic variants of RAS proteins, and RAS Companion Inhibitors for use in combination treatment strategies. As a new member of the Revolution Medicines team, you will join other outstanding scientists in a tireless commitment to patients with cancers harboring mutations in the RAS signaling pathway.

The Opportunity:

As a key temporary member of MCCB team, you will;

  • Maintain cultures of multiple cancer cell lines to support experimental efforts.

  • Perform molecular biology or bioassays to interrogate the effects of inhibitors on cellular pathways – RT-qPCR, Western blotting, ELISA, etc.

  • Develop and perform plate-based cellular assays using reagent kits. Experience with assay automation/robotic liquid handlers would be a plus.

  • Analyze data using data analysis software: Excel, GraphPad Prism, and SoftMax Pro.

  • Be an excellent team member, collaborator, communicator.

  • Have an eagerness to learn new techniques.

  • Additional experience in the following is a plus:

    • High-throughput functional genomics approaches in mammalian cells (CRISPR/RNAi screens, RNA-seq, proteomics, LC-MS, etc.).

    • Working knowledge of Python, R, or other programming languages is helpful, but not required.

    • Lenti-Virus Transduction.

    • Engineer cell lines with gene editing technology using CRISPR/Cas9.

Required Experience, Skills, and Education:

  • Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, or related field.

  • 2+ years of experience in cell culture/molecular biology role in biotech or academic lab.

  • Hands-on experience beyond laboratory coursework with demonstrated proficiency in a variety of cellular and molecular biology techniques (e.g. mammalian cell culture, SDS-PAGE/Western blot, qPCR, kit-based assays such as CTG, Alpha Screen, MSD).

  • Desire to learn and develop functional genomics and proteomics approaches for applications in oncology.

  • Rigorous, quantitative, attention to detail, keen to maximize efficiency.

  • Highly organized, detail-oriented, and excellent record-keeping skills.

  • Demonstrated ability to meet project deadlines and work efficiently in a fluid environment.
