Research & Development


Neomorph Inc is building the pre-eminent biotech in the protein degradation space. Focusing on next-generation approaches, Neomorph is assembling a world class team to advance the science around this emerging modality and address serious unmet medical needs.


At Neomorph, we aim to solve critical problems in human health by advancing the technology of targeted protein degradation. We will tackle serious diseases that have been considered intractable due to a lack of ‘druggable’ therapeutic targets. The Neomorph founders and management teams are composed of people that have demonstrated years of dedication to the field, and who are responsible for multiple major scientific advances in the space. We are seeking highly engaged and innovative individuals who wish to join us in building a collaborative and people-focused company, centered on scientific excellence in the pursuit of highly impactful and novel therapies.


We are recruiting a proteomics group leader who will have the opportunity to build a world class proteomics platform for targeted protein degradation drug discovery. We are seeking an individual who will provide both scientific leadership and hands-on technical expertise to build our proteomics platform.  


Our Ideal Candidate:


You are an experienced proteomics expert looking to work alongside leaders in the field of targeted protein degradation to make a difference for drug discovery. You have the vision to build a cutting-edge proteomics platform, with depth of knowledge in modern approaches, instrumentation, and data analysis tools. You have the leadership experience and technological ability to build our proteomics capabilities and team from the ground up.




  • Provide scientific leadership to programs at all stages of drug discovery
  • Implement a quantitative proteomics platform capable of multiplexed whole proteome and targeted mass spectrometry studies
  • Enable proteomics studies for target identification, compound selectivity, post-translational modification, and mechanism of action assessments.
