POSITION AVAILABLE: Group Leader, Fungal Genetics
You will be responsible for building and developing
both yeast and filamentous fungal genetics at
Exelixis. You will work closely with colleagues in
Genomics, Genetics, and Informatics to implement
high throughput approaches for rapid target
identification in a range of programs including
Mechanism of Action, Oncology, Crop Protection,
Plant Biotech. In addition you will develop new
model systems for functional genomics of plant
pathogens with a goal of identifying new fungicide
targets and understanding conserved mechanisms
of host-pathogen interactions.
Ph.D with minimum 8 years post-graduate experience in yeast genetics
and application of high throughput approaches to model system genetics.
Proven ability to successfully lead a research team and work as a team
player with colleagues across a broad range of disciplines.
Flexibility, excellent communication skills (verbal and written) and
enthusiasm for new challenges are essential.
Experience in the biology of filamentous fungi or plants preferred.
Exelixis (www.exelixis.com) is a rapidly growing, well-funded
company whose mission is to identify novel therapeutic targets
for drug discovery by elucidating the biochemical pathways
involved in human diseases. Our current research programs are
focused on metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and
oncology. We use a combination of invertebrate genetics (C.
elegans and Drosophila), genomics, and vertebrate biology to
identify key molecules in the pathways contributing to these
disease states. Exelixis is also committed to developing new
approaches to the control of agricultural pest species. We are
applying our core technology in genetics and genomics to the
discovery of specific targets for crop protection and animal
