Careers

TALENT DRIVES SUCCESS

We are looking for exceptionally talented individuals who share our passion for revolutionary science and commitment to changing the world by helping patients with serious diseases. We provide competitive and comprehensive benefits and are making REVOLUTION Medicines a great place to work.

CURRENT POSITIONS

REVOLUTION Medicines is an exciting, early stage biotechnology company that discovers and develops innovative drugs for cancer patients directed toward frontier oncology and immune-oncology targets.  The company draws inspiration from evolution and natural products that are inherently rich with biological function. REVOLUTION Medicines deploys an innovative toolkit including REVBLOCKS™, an integrated suite of rapid, agile, and modular synthesis methodologies applied to simple chemical “building blocks,” and the REVEAL™ computational platform, which uses evolution’s lessons to inform selection of chemical scaffolds guide drug design for non-classical drug targets. As a new member of the RevMed team, you will join other outstanding scientists who are helping lead our efforts in the discovery and development of new medicines for unmet needs in cancer.

 

The Opportunity:

As a key player in our biology team, you will:

  • Be a critical member of the cancer biology group and multi-disciplinary research project teams

  • Be accountable to the Head of Biology and Research Team Leads for performing cutting-edge cellular immunology research by integrating knowledge from tumor immunology and immunotherapy to support development of novel therapies.

  • Independently design and execute experimental strategies using cellular and molecular immunological techniques to investigate target biology and therapeutic mechanisms of action.

  • Develop novel in vitro or ex vivo assays systems to support characterization of novel therapies in in vivo immuno-oncology models.

  • Manage and analyze experimental data and present experimental results at internal meetings and scientific conferences.

  • Establish collaborations with leading academic research groups.

 

Required Experience, Skills, and Education:

  • Ph.D. degree in immunology, cancer biology, cell biology or a related discipline, with 2+ years of post-doctoral or relevant industry experience and demonstrable track record of excellence in tumor immunology and/or immunotherapy.

  • Strong track record of research productivity as evidenced by high-quality, impactful publications, preferably in the field of cancer biology or tumor immunology.

  • Extensive hands on experience in ‘state of the art’ immunology techniques including multi-parameter flow cytometric analyses, cytokine analysis, functional assays, imaging, cell biology and molecular biology.

  • Previous experience with tumor models would be a plus. Knowledge of models that interrogate and modulate cells and mediators of the innate and adaptive immune system would be an advantage.

  • Rigorous, quantitative and detail-oriented experimentalist with a desire to continue in a laboratory-focused role

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Demonstrated ability to multi-task, prioritize options, anticipate challenges, and execute on goals as a member of an interdisciplinary team is extremely important.

  • Thrives in a collaborative team setting and is driven by a desire to deploy innovative approaches and technologies in a high energy start-up environment.
