We bring a human touch to every treatment we pioneer. Join us and make a difference.

BMS is a leader in the discovery and development of novel therapies that exploit targeted protein degradation. The biochemical and biophysical characterization of these induced protein complexes is critical to our protein homeostasis (PH) research, as they will enable our understanding of mechanisms of action that will enable compound design and predictions about new biological targets for our drug discovery efforts. A deep focus in Oncology, with additional efforts in other therapeutic areas of unmet need, places our research squarely within projects of intense biomedical interest.

The Scientist will perform and lead research within a talented group of Biochemists and Biophysicists and will draw upon their experience and expertise in characterizing protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. There is opportunity to have a real-time, high-value impact on ongoing projects and chart the future of our research efforts by, for example, uncovering mechanisms of action, defining binding modes of target proteins, and contributing to early-stage drug discovery. The Scientist will engage cross-functionally with Structural Biology, Chemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Computational-Aided Drug Design scientists as part of a larger PH team. There are additional opportunities to interact with and engage with a larger community of scientists throughout the BMS organization. We are seeking a passionate scientist who strives to leverage data-driven scientific reasoning into meaningful insights, with the goal of bringing novel therapies to patients.

Job Responsibilities

  • Plan, execute, and report on biochemical and biophysical studies of proteins of interest, including enzymes of the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  • Work cross-functionally with other PH team members to develop CRBN E3 Ligase Modulators (CELMoDs) and Ligand Directed Degraders (LDDs)
  • Lead biochemical/biophysical efforts pursuing novel ligands for protein targets and represent the PH Biochemistry and Biophysics team at project level and departmental meetings
  • Lead and represent PH Biochemistry and Biophysics in cross-functional initiatives
  • Work with managers and peers to develop innovative biochemistry/biophysical methodologies and approaches to enable drug discovery in the PH field
  • Draw from scientific literature to inform decision making

Basic Qualifications:

Bachelor’s Degree and 5+ years of academic or industry experience

OR

Master’s Degree and 3+ years of academic or industry experience

OR

Ph.D. and no experience

Preferred Qualifications:

  • A PhD in a relevant field with training in protein biochemistry/biophysics
  • Demonstrated expertise in biochemistry/biophysics and assay development, with ability to deliver data quickly and accurately
  • In-depth knowledge of current practices, instrumentation, and approaches for answering key biochemical/biophysical questions with a focus on protein complexes and ligand binding
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Knowledge or exposure to the ubiquitin proteasome system is a plus
  • Demonstrated ability to thrive in a multidisciplinary team and engage with diverse collaborations to drive the development of PH therapeutics

Career Development Opportunities

  • Opportunities to learn new scientific skills through active collaborations across the organization
  • Opportunities for mentorship as well as access to diverse resource communities within BMS
