Job Summary

The Team Dewpoint Therapeutics translates condensate biology into much-needed medicines. Biomolecular condensates are transforming our understanding of biology, and our highly collaborative team is at the forefront of efforts to harness this shift for drug discovery. With deep and diverse expertise in medicine, biology, AI, chemistry, physics, and more, we aim to discover life-changing therapeutics for patients who currently have few or no treatment options. Together, we are leveraging a transformative shift in the understanding of cellular biology to discover and advance breakthrough therapeutics for the toughest diseases. In 30 months, we have grown rapidly to over 100 colleagues and are truly global, with offices in Boston, Dresden, and Berlin and team members in five different countries. We are also diverse in many ways. From our recent DEI survey, 84% of the company responded and we are proud of what our team members shared: Together we speak 14 languages and come from 18 birth countries. Half of us are introverts and half are extraverts. We’re nearly split evenly between being reserved and being assertive. Two thirds of us like to ponder before making decisions and a third of us prefer rapid decision-making. We represent the full spectrum of gender identities and sexual orientations. 25% of us are neurodiverse or differently physically abled. 70% of us are Millennials. We are nearly equally split between those who joined us < 7 months, 7-12 months, and over a year. We are also uniquely accomplished in our careers before Dewpoint and in our work together. Collectively, our team members have brought 51 drugs to market and published almost a thousand paper. At Dewpoint, we have forged four important partnerships, including three with major pharmaceutical companies. We have raised $147M in venture financing and are making significant investments in our people, science, and platform. The Opportunity We are searching for a versatile and innovative cell biologist to work in the laboratory and drive our condensate exploration, validation, and drug discovery efforts. The ideal candidate is interested in leading the most creative process of our drug discovery efforts. You will be attracted to high-risk high-gain experiments using the most innovative approaches and technology. You will be generating novel disease hypothesis and validation for our drug discovery efforts. You will have a strong scientific background in cell and molecular biology. This position requires a strong expertise in assays with several cellular systems, including immortalized and iPSC-derived cells. In this position you’ll be part of an energizing and supportive startup culture engaged in continuous learning, and part of an exceptional international team. This role is based at our site in Dresden's BioInnovation Center. Dewpoint offers competitive salary and benefits.
