Join us in the most challenging and rewarding science of our lives.


We are seeking a Scientist I/II with experience in immunology to join our Nurix drug discovery team. Nurix is devoted to unlocking the therapeutic potential of the ubiquitin system. Ubiquitin ligases play numerous roles in immune cell function, autoimmunity, inflammation and anti-tumor immunity. The successful candidate will support early drug discovery efforts in the area of inflammation and IO. These duties will include planning, execution and analysis of disease relevant cellular and/or in vivo experiments to support the lead optimization of our novel compounds. This individual will work closely with scientists from cross-functional disciplines and present findings to project teams. The ideal candidate will be self-driven, eager to learn new techniques, highly organized and enjoy working in a creative and dynamic team environment.

If you are intrigued by the opportunity to work with a passionate team of scientists focused on improving patient’s lives with first-in-class therapies, please consider applying.
