Job Summary

Warp Drive Bio is seeking a motivated and self-sufficient scientist with a Ph.D. degree in structural biology with expertise in X-ray crystallography coupled with research interests in the area of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions to participate in various drug discovery programs focused on discovering and developing inhibitors of undruggable targets using the mechanisms and molecules of nature.

Responsibilities

  • Execute high-throughput crystallization screening and coordinate X-ray data collection for multiple drug discovery programs under aggressive timelines
  • Independently determine and refine macromolecular complex structures in PDB deposition quality with fast turnaround time
  • Analyze and present structural data in meetings with a clear understanding of its reliability and impact, leading to conclusion and recommendation for path forward
  • Develop and perform gel- and/or MS-based biochemical assays to characterize protein-ligand and protein-protein interactions
  • Design and oversee production of protein constructs for crystallography and biochemical assays (in-house/CRO).
  • Maintenance and tracking of an internal macromolecule structure database
  • Proactively evaluate new technologies and implement into structural biology platform as needed
  • Literature search and update in the disciplines related to structural biology for WDB drug discovery programs
  • May supervise co-workers and contribute to their training and development

Job Requirements

  • Ph.D. and 2+ years or postdoctoral training in structural biology, biochemistry, chemical biology, or a closely related discipline.
  • Postdoctoral training in a pharmaceutical/biotechnology setting is plus but not mandatory.
  • All aspects of macromolecular crystallography, including crystallization screening, optimization, data collection, structure solving and refinement, and structure analysis
  • Proficiency in crystallographic program suites (e.g. CCP4, PHENIX) and molecular visualization programs (e.g. PyMol, Maestro)
  • Experience in molecular biology techniques, protein purification, and protein engineering.
  • Demonstrated creativity in multidisciplinary structural biology area as evidenced by a strong record of scientific accomplishment.
  • Excellence in protein mass spectrometry is highly desired.
  • Experience working with protein complexes is highly desired.
  • Experience in biophysical characterization methods (e.g. SPR, ITC) is desired not essential.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential.
  • Excellence in graphic skills is highly desired.
