About Treeline Biosciences

Treeline Biosciences was founded by an experienced team of biopharmaceutical scientists and executives and is committed to developing new medicines against difficult-to-drug targets in cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We are pursuing a uniquely integrated approach that applies modern and emerging tools in genomics, cell biology, structural biology, medicinal chemistry, and computation to reduce the time and risk of classical drug discovery approaches.

About you

You thrive in a fast-paced and matrixed discovery environment requiring insight, innovation, and scientific rigor. You are creative, diligent, and meticulous in approaching difficult scientific problems and can collaborate across disciplines to advance projects. You have an eagerness to take on responsibilities outside of traditional discovery biology roles, to establish strong internal capabilities at a rapidly growing new company and to generate key data sets that will inform the clinical development of effective new therapies for people with cancer.

About the role

This person will be responsible for generating robust preclinical datasets to inform key aspects of clinical development strategies, including the design of early-phase clinical trials and the expansion of late-stage clinical development programs. This researcher will work closely within Discovery teams to advance clinical candidates with strong translational strategies. They will also work with Translational colleagues to advance translational strategies that will enhance the probability of success for early-stage clinical programs. In addition, they will work to identify additional uses for agents beyond initial proof-of-concept, with the aim of delivering clinical benefit to additional patient populations.




This role is lab-focused, with an emphasis on generating strong preclinical data sets to inform clinical development strategies, from early first-in-human and proof-of-concept trials to later-stage studies aimed at regulatory approvals and label expansion.
