Job Description

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the intersection of chemistry, engineering, computation, and biology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases. Eikon’s discovery platform is built on groundbreaking innovations from its founders (Nobel Prize, 2014), culminating in the creation of microscopes which enable real time, molecular-resolution measurements of protein movement in living cells, thereby unlocking otherwise intractable classes of proteins as drug targets.

Position

As a Research Associate at Eikon, you will join an interdisciplinary team of highly creative and talented individuals. You will collaborate with scientists to establish and validate in vitro cell-based functional assays that will be critical in aiding our Single Particle Tracking (SPT) drug discovery platform and compound Structure-Activity Relationship (SAR) campaigns. Your work will contribute to the coordinated small molecule discovery efforts of multidisciplinary project teams consisting of biologists, chemists, computer scientists, and microscope engineers

About You

  • You’re a rigorous experimentalist who takes pride in your ability to execute at the bench
  • You pay attention to detail, have good documentation and organizational skills
  • You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic, multi-tasking environment
  • You’re resourceful and able to work independently as well as in a highly collaborative team environment; always open to diverse points of view
  • You adapt to novel and evolving methods and techniques

What You’ll Do

  • Aid in the development and validation of new cell-based assays to profile small molecule compounds identified through SPT screening campaigns
  • Execute cell-based assays to aid in hit triage, SAR, and hit-to-lead identification of small molecule compounds
  • Generate high-quality and reproducible data in support of project team goals
  • Routinely report experimental results to peers & cross-functional team members
  • Interact with other researchers and scientists to discuss ongoing project needs
  • Perform practical lab work, schedule day-to-day tasks, and ensure timely delivery of high-quality results

Qualifications

  • Master’s degree with 6-8 years industry experience or Bachelor’s degree with 8-10 years of industry experience
  • Hands-on experience in development, optimization and execution of cellular assays, applying multiple techniques including mammalian cell culture, ELISA, Luciferase assays, SDS-PAGE, Western and multiplexing technologies (e.g. MSD, Flow Cytometry)
  • Experience with liquid handlers & high-throughput automation is a plus
  • Experience with quantitative and/or statistical analysis using common software tools (GraphPad Prism, Microsoft Suite, etc.)
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Self-driven and highly enthusiastic individual ready to tackle novel questions and be part of a fast-growing team
