Scholar Rock is a Phase 3, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of innovative medicines for the treatment of serious diseases in which signaling by protein growth factors plays a fundamental role.
Our most advanced investigational product candidate, apitegromab (SRK-015), a selective inhibitor of the activation of the growth factor myostatin in skeletal muscle, is in development for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy, or SMA. Following positive results from the TOPAZ Phase 2 trial in patients with Type 2 and Type 3 SMA, we are now advancing apitegromab development through SAPPHIRE, an ongoing, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 clinical trial. In addition, we are conducting our DRAGON Phase 1 proof-of-concept trial for SRK-181, a selective inhibitor of latent TGFβ1 activation, in patients with locally advanced and metastatic solid tumors.
By combining our deep structural insights with antibody drug discovery, Scholar Rock is creating a pipeline of novel product candidates with the potential to transform the lives of patients suffering from a wide range of serious diseases, including neuromuscular disorders, cancer, and fibrosis.
Summary of Position:
In this role, you will have an opportunity to be part of an IT Operations team for a fast-growing life sciences organization. This is a high impact, high visibility role! You will form close partnerships with many departments across the company and immediately have influence on not only the applications but also business processes, operational efficiency, and vendor management.
You will be immersed in a fast paced, collaborative environment which values its employees and prides itself on its unique culture. As a hands-on leader, you will have the opportunity to learn many different facets of a small to mid-size life sciences company as well as work with some extremely talented teams.
You may be the right fit if you are interested in helping to build a growing organization, work as a team with colleagues in a collegial way and enjoy leading high impact projects, developing a team and driving operational excellence. If you have an ear to the ground on security, compliance and risk, those interests will also serve you well. Candidates who are curious and consider themselves “life learners” will thrive at Scholar Rock. While technical aptitude is appreciated, we deeply value soft skills such as creativity, interpersonal, written and communication skills. This role reports to the Director of IT Operations but will work with ALL departments across the organization.
