JOB SUMMARY

Warp Drive Bio has employed a novel SMARTTM modality to develop inhibitors of important therapeutic targets such as RAS, that have previously considered to be intractable to more traditional small molecule approaches. We are seeking a highly motivated Scientist to support proteomic mass spectroscopy within the Biology Dept. The candidate will be responsible for mass spectroscopy method development for quantitative target engagement and proteome-wide target identification. In addition, the candidate will assist in cellular assay development and cellular mechanism of action studies for covalent inhibitors. This individual will be expected to conduct independent experiments and prepare and present data at project meetings.

 

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES

·      Prepare samples from tissues and cells for mass spectroscopy

·      Maintain and troubleshoot nano-LC and on-site mass spectroscopy instruments

·      Optimize and develop quantitative mass spectroscopy assays and perform proteome-wide data analysis

·      Cell culture and cellular assay development

·      Manage external contract research

·      Data analysis and reporting

·      Communicate results to functional teams, project teams, and senior management

 

JOB REQUIREMENTS

·      Ph.D. degree in relevant discipline (i.e. mass spectrometry/proteomics, biochemistry, or biology) with 0-4 years of industrial experience or B.S./M.S. with a minimum 8-10 years industrial experience in mass spectrometry/proteomics

·      Expertise in the maintenance and proper usage of mass spectrometers, ideally experience with Thermo Q-Exactive and Velos-OrbiTrap instruments and software

·      Experience in sample preparation and method development for proteomics

·      Experience with nano-LC, PRM method development and proteome-wide data analysis

·      Experience with co-precipitation

·      Skilled in cell culture and cellular assay development

·      Ability to plan and troubleshoot experiments independently

·      Ability to communicate results across matrix-based teams

·      Exceptional time management skills

 

ADDITIONAL SKILLS DESIRED BUT NOT REQUIRED
