Biochemistry Research Associate

Our vision is to restore hope and health for patients diagnosed with untreatable cancers.  There have been great advances in cancer therapeutics, but there’s still a lot of progress to be made.  At Tegmine, we’ve developed a platform which employs cutting-edge mass spectrometry and CRISPR cell engineering to discover and develop higher-specificity antibody-based therapeutics.  Our platform focuses on identifying proteins with tumor-specific modifications that drive disease progression and severity.  By targeting proteins in their pathogenic state, we are developing high-precision antibodies for the next generation of anti-cancer therapeutics.

We are seeking a Research Associate to join our growing Discovery Proteomics team. This is an early discovery role and will support our target identification and validation efforts. Utilizing state of the art mass spectrometry technologies you will characterize modifications of purified protein targets and help identify new protein targets from patient derived samples. Building upon established methods, you will have the opportunity to test and develop new protocols and gain experience in a range of techniques as we develop additional ADC therapies. Those with an interest in protein post-translational modifications (glycosylation, phosphorylation, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply.
