Description

Civetta Therapeutics is recruiting an experienced “drug hunting” leader in biology.

Located in Cambridge, MA, Civetta is developing novel therapeutics through the targeting of beta-propeller domain proteins.  Beta-propellers are a class of highly conserved structural proteins that are implicated in a range of indications, including multiple types of cancer, neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases.  Backed by Deerfield Management, Civetta was founded by William Sellers (Broad Institute and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute) and Eric Fischer (Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School) with the mission to leverage the wide array of biologic functions in which propeller proteins participate to discover impactful new medicines for patients.

We are building a team of talented, dedicated scientists who share our vision and our passion to discover groundbreaking new drugs to treat some of the most difficult diseases, including cancer.  If you are an accomplished life sciences professional that can bring significant energy, passion, and expertise to the team, we welcome the opportunity to consider you for a position.

The position 

The Project Leader, Biology, will be an integral member of the Biology team at Civetta. The Biology team is responsible for identifying and validating molecular targets, evaluating novel drug candidates, and providing forward-thinking approaches to advance our pre-clinical pipeline and proprietary platform. The Principal Scientist will be responsible for leading an oncology program from hit-to-lead through to IND-enabling studies, for small molecule modulators of beta-propeller proteins.  The candidate must have excellent communication skills and be able to work with a positive attitude in a dynamic, fast-paced, cross-functional team environment focused on high quality science to propel us in delivering innovative therapeutics for cancer and other diseases.
