Rubedo Life Sciences is a biotechnology company with active research programs related toage-related diseases with a focus on inflammation and fibrosis. We are seeking a motivatedand dynamic Scientist / Senior Scientist to help build the capabilities needed for translationalresearch and preclinical development, advancing the discovery of molecular targets andtherapeutics for age-related pathobiologies. The successful candidate will be an experienceddrug-discovery scientist.

Responsibilities include:

  • Work closely with our Bioinformatics specialists to identify novel age-related disease targets and signaling pathways
  • Design, conduct and manage experiments related to the discovery of therapeutic drug mechanisms targeting cellular senescence and age-related diseases
  • Analysis of data, and preparation of associated documentation and reports
  • Presentation of experimental results at meetings
  • Develop protocols and maintain detailed documentation of procedures
  • Train and supervise research associates

Minimum Requirements:

  • Ph.D. or equivalent experience in Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Immunology,Physiology, Pharmacology or related discipline
  • Three or more years of relevant industry experience in target discovery and validation
  • Established knowledge base in at least one aspect of age-related disease biology
  • Experience in the study of chronic diseases in one or more of the following disease areas: metabolic, inflammatory, fibrotic or other age-related diseases (such as Metabolic, Inflammatory and Fibrotic Diseases)
  • Deep understanding of molecular pathways driving pathological tissue degeneration
  • Proven ability to solve complex problems by undertaking innovative approaches and applying state-of-the art technologies

Preferred Experience And Skills:

  • Strong understanding of tissue homeostasis and immunology
  • Experience with single cell isolation (such as fluorescent activated cell sorting)
  • Experience in whole animal physiology and in vivo models of fibrosis and/or inflammatory diseases
  • Actively seeks and embraces feedback with the goal of continuous performance improvement
  • Experience with computational and statistical approaches for high-dimensional data analysis, such as single cell RNA sequencing and/or proteomics
