Company Overview: Terray Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotechnology company leveraging our vast high-quality data to optimize the path from discovery to transformative therapeutics. Our approach delivers on the promise of computation to revolutionize drug discovery. Through our closed-loop wet lab discovery platform and data-rich AI, we overcome existing constraints on chemical data by systematically mapping the biochemical interactions of massive and diverse small molecule libraries to identify novel therapeutic compounds. Access to this quantitative data at scale allows us to intelligently navigate an infinitely extensible and highly diverse chemical space to efficiently design, discover and optimize small molecule therapeutics. Our internal development programs are focused on immunology. In addition to these programs we also work with leading pharmaceutical companies.
Our integrated computational platform, tNova, harnesses our novel affinity binding technology, tArray, unique resynthesis capabilities, and broad biology infrastructure. tArray is the foundation of our discovery engine. It enables us to screen hundreds of millions of compounds in minutes and return quantitative data on each compound. Vast, high purity, and high diversity compound libraries are rapidly iterated using best-in-class chemistry to unlock chemical insights at the scale necessary to power AI-driven drug discovery.
Part of Terray Therapeutics’ success is nurtured by a hands-on work environment where everyone is accountable, everyone is vested in a vision of excellence, and everyone actively takes part in the success of the business. Terray Therapeutics supports a positive work environment comprised of engaged employees who feel appreciated, recognized and free to be creative.
Position Summary: Terray Therapeutics is currently seeking a Scientist for the Platforms R&D Team. The candidate will be a key member of our platforms team developing additional novel miniaturized bioassays beyond Terray’s core binding affinity platform. The candidate must be an exceptional all-around-scientist as the work is highly interdisciplinary and also at the cutting edge of what is possible. The work is likely to include solid phase synthesis, bead design, chip design, microfluidics, handling of biological reagents, surface chemistry, fluorescence microscopy and more. The candidate will work closely with the rest of the Platforms R&D team and head of Platforms R&D.
Experience and Qualifications: Given the company’s size, anticipated growth and fast-paced environment, the organization requires a scientist who is thoughtful, high energy and can work effectively within a team to further enhance our next generation drug discovery capabilities.
We are looking for an individual that has demonstrated ingenuity/creativity for the purpose of nano-scale bioassay development. Any candidate must also demonstrate ability to execute interdisciplinary projects.
