Targeted Protein Degradation Research Scientist (BS or MS)

Targeted Protein Degradation Research Scientist (BS or MS)
We seek a highly motivated cell and molecular biologist to join the Genomic Sciences team in the Chemical & Biological Therapeutics (CBT) department at the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) in Cambridge to leverage cutting edge technologies to enable innovative cell and gene therapies and targeted protein degradation platforms. Responsibilities will include the design and execution of functional biology approaches to evaluate targeted protein degradation, including assessment of target and E3 ligase biology, ubiquitin proteasome pathway, complex protein dynamics and downstream function in physiologically relevant assays. The successful candidate will have a background in both cell based assays and molecular biology techniques with experience in developing and optimizing assays across different formats. Other responsibilities include efficient communication of results and proposing next steps to team members.
