Job Details

The Organization

What's happening at Entrada Therapeutics? Our mission is to transform the treatment of devastating diseases by establishing a new class of medicines to engage intracellular targets that have long been considered inaccessible and undruggable.  

Our Endosomal Escape Vehicle (EEV™)-therapeutics represent a fundamental advancement in the field of intracellular therapeutics. They are designed to enable the efficient intracellular delivery of a wide range of therapeutics into a variety of organs and tissues, resulting in an improved therapeutic index. Through our EEV platform, we are building a diverse pipeline of RNA-, antibody- and enzyme-based programs for the potential treatment of neuromuscular, immunological, ocular and metabolic diseases, among others. 

Our lead oligonucleotide programs include ENTR-601-44 and ENTR-601-45 for the potential treatment of people living with Duchenne who are exon 44 and 45 skipping amenable, respectively, as well as our partnered candidate ENTR-701 targeting myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). 

We are a tight-knit team of experts and leaders in both therapeutic development and rare diseases and are excited to grow and attract colleagues who are ready to join a high-energy, dedicated team that likes to get things done and dramatically improve the lives of patients and their families. 

The Perfect Fit

You should be a versatile, self-motivated, and looking forward to rolling up your sleeves, as you’ll be involved in all aspects of oligonucleotides, supporting efforts for antisense oligonucleotides, small interfering ribonucleic acids and gene editing platforms. You should be ready to support our team of drug discovery scientists as we design, prepare and characterize oligonucleotide constructs and carry out analytical assays for functional validation both in vitro and in vivo.

The Opportunity

In this role you will have the opportunity to be involved in a lot of different aspects of our discovery biology work, for example processing and analyzing samples from in vitro and in vivo studies will be just one of your areas of work. You’ll be expected to work through techniques like RNA/protein extraction, RT-PCR, RT-qPCR, ELISA, and western blot. You’ll also have the opportunity to maintain and culture cell lines for in vitro studies, as well as developing and executing cell-based assays for validating biological activity of RNA and gene-editing based therapeutics. Lastly, you’ll have the opportunity to prepare SOPs and other reports and publications.

The Necessities

At Entrada, our passion for science, our devotion to patients and our values drive our behavior:

  • Humanity - We genuinely care about patients and about one another.
  • Tenacity - We are relentless and persistent in the pursuit of developing therapies for patients.
  • Creativity - We are creative problem solvers.
  • Collaboration - We are more than the sum of our parts.
  • Curiosity - We have a growth mindset and push conventional thought and theory.

To thrive on our team, you will need to come with:

  • Your BS/MS in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry or similar field with 2+ years of lab experience
  • Hands-on experience in mammalian cell culturing, molecular and biochemistry techniques, such as PCR, qPCR, fluorescence microscopy, Western blotting, ELISA, and flow cytometry
  • Experience in isolating and culturing primary immune cells is a plus.
  • Experience in CRISPR gene-editing and next-generation sequencing is highly desirable.
  • Ability to collaborate with interdisciplinary teams with strong communication skills.
  • Desire to work in an innovative and collaborative environment pursuing high reward science.
The Perks

By becoming a team member here at Entrada, you’ll have access to competitive health, dental, and vision coverage, as well as life insurance, and short term and long-term disability insurance. We value work life balance, you'll benefit from discretionary time off, paternity leave, and an excellent 401(k) package. We also offer a generous transportation stipend to commute as you wish. Our location in the vibrant and growing Seaport District is close to all the best that the city of Boston has to offer.
