The Oncogenesis Thematic Research Center (TRC) at BMS is one of the fundamental research and early development engines delivering oncology therapeutics to patients. The Oncogenesis TRC has a major focus of exploiting BMS’ expertise in protein degradation to discover and develop therapies aimed at tumor intrinsic vulnerabilities and mechanisms of resistance to existing cancer therapeutics. This focus on protein degradation allows us to attack protein classes that were previously deemed undruggable. The group integrates discovery research through translational and early clinical development and exploits state-of -the-art in vitro, in vivo and ex-vivo models of cancer biology to identify and validate targets and partners closely with colleagues in Translational Medicine, Informatics and Predictive Sciences and Early Clinical Development to generate biomarker and patient enrichment hypotheses to enable efficient decision making in early clinical trials.
This Senior Scientist level position will join the Discovery Biology team at the Oncogenesis TRC in San Diego, CA. The qualified candidate should be a motivated and creative biologist who possesses substantial expertise in and passion for cancer biology and genetics, with a keen eye for novel therapeutic opportunities to address well defined patient populations. The individual will support and lead the discovery of novel targeted protein degradation drugs for solid tumor. The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary environment to explore disease biology enabling identification of novel drug targets; develop and implement robust cellular assays to support discovery of small molecules as clinical development candidates; design and execute research strategies that further our understanding of the mechanisms of novel compounds and targets; and develop collaborations and interact with external partners relevant to the target discovery efforts. The desired candidate should have broad experience in cancer biology and in vitro cell culture techniques and a willingness to learn and adapt to any direction a project may take them. The candidate is expected to be able to work as an independent scientist, but also extensively collaborate or coordinate with other functional areas and contribute as part of a team to make project-based decisions. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong verbal and written communication skills, capable of presenting scientific results to multidisciplinary teams. This role is a primarily bench-facing cancer biology research position.
The starting compensation for this job is a range from $109,000-$150,700, plus incentive cash and stock opportunities (based on eligibility).
The starting pay rate takes into account characteristics of the job, such as required skills and the where the job is performed.
