​SciPro is working with a mid-sized company based in New York City to find an experienced Biologist to join their innovative and next-generational team. Their work is entirely Dry Lab, and they focus on the discovery phase of drug development, specifically, but they are looking for a Biologist to help build their program and consult on a variety of topics.

This role would be as a high-functioning individual contributor, and you would not be expected to take on any direct reports. You would, however, be expected to come in and immediately work on internal projects and collaborations the company already has set up.

There is some remote flexibility, but you would be expected to live in NYC and come into the office a few times a week at least.

In this role, you would be expected to:

  • Come in and hit the ground running with your prior knowledge of drug discovery.

  • Help consult on a variety of topics such as target evaluation / selection and translational strategy.

  • Help manage and oversee CRO work based in cell assays and in vivo testing.

In order to qualify for this role, you should have:

  • 8-10 years of experience, more heavily weighted towards industry, specifically.

  • Ph.D. in Molecular Biology or related field.

  • Deep experience with in vivo experimentation and work with cellular assays.

  • The ability to drive an assay from scratch and in vitro work would be a plus.

  • Strong research background as shown through a deep publication record.

If you think you would be a good fit, please apply or reach out to me directly at
