A Total Solution

Founded in 2017, TLS is the only company developing comprehensive target drugs and neutron technology product portfolio to enable next-generation boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) as a first-line treatment for patients globally.

The company has made a significant investment in developing a portfolio of new Boron-10 target drugs, with the goal of expanding the application of BNCT to new cancer types and to provide even better outcomes for indications historically treated with Boronophenylalanine (BPA), the only target drug currently utilized in BNCT.

Careers

Join the team committed to revolutionizing cancer treatment. TAE Life Sciences is an equal opportunity employer. TAE Life Sciences is currently hiring for the following positions:

Position Summary: We are seeking a highly motivated chemist with solid grounding in organic chemistry and an interest in medicinal chemistry. The successful candidate will join our Chemistry Group to work on projects in the pursuit of novel bioconjugates and small molecules utilized in boron neutron capture therapy for curing diseases including cancer.

  • An individual with a strong background in synthetic organic/medicinal chemistry. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing synthetic routes and chemical processes for small molecule prodrugs, and polymers for conjugation to biomolecules.
  • The tasks include
    • Performing research in the laboratory as synthetic and medicinal chemist
    • Design and execute synthesis of organic molecules and biopolymers
    • Critically evaluate relevant scientific advances and integrate this knowledge into research programs
    • Instrumental in the intellectual property generation and patent filing
  • This role works in a collaborative environment with cell biology / antibody generation & pharmacology group
  • Experience in either bioconjugation chemistry or boron chemistry is a plus

About the company: TAE Life Sciences is a technology and precision medicine company based in Foothill Ranch and Santa Monica, California. Our mission is to transform the clinical management and treatment of cancer via innovative and tissue sparing neutron radiation therapy known as BNCT. We re-engineer therapeutic antibodies against biologically important targets and enable them with the ability to deliver boron to tumor followed by neutron radiation to eradicate cancer cells by an in situ alpha-particle generation nuclear fission reaction, while sparing the non-cancer i.e. normal cells. Our first neutron beam medical device, Alpha Beam™, is due to be commissioned in Xiamen, China at the end of 2022.

Job Location: California, USA

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Work effectively with multidisciplinary team
  • Help maintain lab in a clean and orderly way
  • Articulate issues and options for resolution to upper management in a timely manner

  • Lead molecules design and implementation and optimization using SAR and medicinal chemistry approaches
  • Optimize multiple parameters during lead generation effort based on strong knowledge of medicinal chemistry and understanding of key ADME, biochemical and pharmacological
    principles
  • Provide oversight for the transfer of chemical processes to third party CRO or CMO and
    develop novel and creative solutions to processing problems
  • Publish research in peer-reviewed journals

Required Qualifications:

  • Doctoral level degree in synthetic organic or medicinal chemistry.
  • Additional post-doctoral experience or Industrial experience in developing synthetic routes and chemical processes for active pharmaceutical ingredients is preferred
  • Highly proficient in advanced synthetic, purification and spectroscopic techniques utilized in the preparation and characterization of organic molecules
  • Inorganic boron chemistry experience, drug-linker experience for ADC/ liposome chemistry knowledge are a plus
  • Strong track record of achievement in synthesis of complex molecules with state of the art knowledge of modern synthetic methodologies and analytical and purification
    techniques
