Job Details

Company Overview

Terray Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotechnology company utilizing a novel spatially encoded screening and optimization platform to develop treatments for historically intractable causes of human disease. The Company's platform technology provides comprehensive, quantitative affinity-binding data at an unprecedented scale. Our internal development programs are focused on oncology and immunology. In addition to these programs, we also work with leading pharmaceutical companies.

Our platform is based on fluorescent imaging of ultra-dense microarrays such that, via thousands to millions of images, we can measure billions of target/molecule interactions in a day, generating hundreds of millions of dose-response binding curves.

Position Summary

Terray Therapeutics seeks a motivated, creative, and experienced biochemist to join our biology team. The candidate will work with one of the scientists in the team to test small molecule hits from our screens in a range of biochemical assays using different target proteins.

The core responsibilities of this job will be:

  1. Run biochemical assays specific to the protein targets at scale using liquid handling robots to evaluate hits from tArray screens
  2. Working closely with our assays scientist to optimize and develop new biochemical assays
  3. Record experiments in the electronic notebook, analyze data, and communicate results
  4. Support organization of lab and equipment as needed
Experience and Qualifications

Given the company’s size, anticipated growth, and fast-paced environment, the organization requires a thoughtful, high-energy scientist who can work effectively with the biology team to enhance our next-generation drug discovery capabilities further.

Part of Terray Therapeutics’ success is nurtured by a hands-on work environment where everyone is accountable, everyone is vested in a vision of excellence, and everyone actively participates in the business's success.
