Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

Summary
We are seeking candidates for a Scientist position in the Skeletal Diseases Therapeutic Focus Area. The successful candidate will focus on receptor-ligand interactions and signal transduction pathways that affect skeletal homeostasis, iron homeostasis, and rare diseases of the skeleton. Candidates should be versed in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Cell Biology techniques. Although the focus of the work will be primarily in vitro, familiarity with animal models (animal handling, phenotyping) are desirable.

Responsibilities
The successful candidate is expected to champion research projects in the Skeletal Diseases Therapeutic Focus Area including generation, collecting, presenting and publishing data.
