Careers at LifeSensorsLifeSensors, Inc., a rapidly growing company located close to historic Valley Forge in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, is developing and marketing a broad technology platform based on ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins such as SUMO. Due to our continued growth, we are seeking highly motivated people to join our energetic team responsible for the identification of enzymes in the ubiquitin pathway and the development of innovative assays and HTS technologies. Our mission is to utilize this platform to facilitate the drug discovery process.
Ubiquitin and the family of small ubiquitin-like modifiers (SUMO) play crucial roles in regulation, degradation, and localization of proteins in the cell. Dysfunction of the enzymes involved in these pathways have been implicated in several disease states, e.g. cystic fibrosis and cancer. For this reason, the discoverers of the ubiquitin-mediated degradation pathway were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2004.
If you are interested in performing cutting edge research in cell and molecular biology of ubiquitin and related proteins, please upload a cover letter and resume using our online application system. We look forward to hearing from you!
We believe our employees are our most valuable assets. Because of that we offer a very generous benefits package to support our employees and their families.
