Career Opportunities

Scientist, Protein Engineering

Reporting to Senior Investigator, the Scientist will be part of a team applying protein engineering for optimization and characterization of therapeutic protein candidates.  In this role, the scientist will require basic molecular biology skills, protein expression and purification experience and familiarity with methods to evaluate protein yield and stability. 

Scientist, Biology

We are seeking a Scientist who can integrate into a fast-paced life sciences company that seeks to develop siRNA:centyrin conjugates for serious diseases.

Investigator/Senior Investigator, Bioconjugation

An Ideal candidate will be the subject matter expert and have knowledge of advanced aspects of synthetic and bioconjugation chemistry, protein chemistry, purification methods, process development, and scale up. In addition, the candidate should be proficient in use of analytical techniques like (HPLC, UV-Vis, SEC, IEX, MS, etc.) including acquisition and interpretation of data.

Senior Principal Investigator, Immunology

This is an exciting opportunity to join the company and play a key role progressing the first Centyrin-siRNA drug candidate to the clinic for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and expand the applications for Centyrin-oligonucleotide conjugates.

Scientist, Oligonucleotide Chemistry

The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of how to design, synthesize, purify and quantify oligonucleotides. The position will require hands-on laboratory work.

Scientist I/II/III, Immunology

The primary responsibility will be to actively engage in early discovery efforts by designing and executing experiments to support Immunology discovery strategy.

Investigator, Genetics & Bioinformatics

Aro is building a growing research team to develop novel Centyrin-based therapeutics. In this role, you will become a foundational member of the team. The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of human genetics and how to access and analyze genetic and other large-scale datasets.
