Job Details

Company Overview

Terray Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotechnology company led by pioneers and long-time leaders in artificial intelligence, biology, medicinal chemistry, automation, and nanotechnology. We’re generating chemical data purpose-built to propel drug discovery into the information age — and we’re doing it on a larger scale and faster than has ever before been possible.

Our closed loop system generates precise chemical datasets at unrivaled scale that work seamlessly with AI to systematically map biochemical interactions between small molecules and causes of disease. Iterative cycles of virtual molecular design and experimentation power AI and machine learning models, which in turn guide the next cycle of design. With a chemistry engine that measures billions of interactions daily and becomes increasingly precise with every cycle, we can answer an unprecedented array of questions — deriving insights that enable us to predictably create drugs for patients in need.

Position Summary

Terray Therapeutics is seeking an innovative and motivated analytical and purification chemist to join our chemistry team. The role will entail high throughput purification of reaction mixture arrays, utilizing mass-triggered reverse phase preparative HPLC. Evaluation and development of additional purification methods on both reverse and normal-phase systems will also be a critical requirement. Given the purification throughput, sample handling and storage solutions will require careful management and setup. Additionally, the candidate will be expected to communicate and work effectively with other key functions at Terray: Biology, Computation & Data Science, and Automation.

Experience and Qualifications

Given the company’s size, anticipated growth, and fast-paced environment, the organization requires a candidate who can work effectively within the existing Microarray Screening team and collaborate with other teams to further enhance our next generation drug discovery capabilities.

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 takes part in the success of the business. Terray Therapeutics supports a positive work environment of engaged employees who feel appreciated, recognized, and free to be creative.

Required Qualifications
  • Ph.D. in organic chemistry or related field.
  • Master’s degree in organic chemistry or related field with 5+ years of experience in industry.
  • Expertise in purification of organic small molecules across normal-phase and reverse-phase chromatography platforms.
  • Experience in mass spectrometry.
  • Expertise in troubleshooting and maintaining LCMS systems.
  • Excellent attention to detail and record keeping.
  • Strong written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Desire to be a team player in a cross-functional environment.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Experience in high throughput, parallel purification methods and demonstrated laboratory leadership and knowledge.
  • Expert knowledge and experience in Agilent and Teledyne purification systems
  • Experience in team management (4+ team size)

They will exhibit the ability to work well under pressure to provide results in a short timeframe. The company is looking for a highly responsive, goal-oriented individual who will bring significant energy and drive to solve complex technical problems and help us achieve our mission to advance human health.

Compensation Details

$104,000 - $175,000 (annually) depending on experience; participation in the Company's stock option plan; 3% 401K contribution; fully paid health, dental, vision and life insurance benefits.
