Scientist/Sr. Scientist, Cancer Biology

At Blueprint Medicines, as our name indicates, we are creating a blueprint for the future of healthcare.  We are a leading company in the personalized medicine revolution by focusing on delivering new medicines that are targeted to the genetic driver of disease.  We do this by leveraging our one-of-kind drug discovery platform to discover, develop and work to bring highly-selective kinase inhibitors to patients globally.  This prolific scientific platform has enabled Blueprint Medicine to build a pipeline of novel therapies that span three distinct areas of medicine; genomically defined cancers, rare diseases and cancer immunotherapy.

Blueprint Medicines is seeking a versatile, collaborative, enthusiastic researcher to join a team working on target discovery and drug development. 


Responsibilities include design, execution and supervision of experiments to elucidate mechanistic biology of drug targets and mechanism of action of small molecule inhibitors. The researcher is also expected to be an active member of cross-functional project teams. Blueprint Medicines provides an exceptional research environment and this position offers the opportunity to learn small molecule drug discovery while maintaining an independent research program.


  • PhD in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, or a related field, and at least 5 years of relevant experience in either an academic or biopharmaceutical setting are required.
  • Record of success in problem solving and in-depth biology research as demonstrated by high quality publications in peer-reviewed journals is important.


The candidate must be skilled at carrying out a wide range of cellular assays and state-of-the-art molecular biology techniques and should be adept in implementing new technologies as they become available.

  • Experience using genomic or genome editing approaches is desirable.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills are essential.
  • The successful candidate should also be highly self-motivated, and possess strong problem solving and interpersonal skills to facilitate cross-functional interactions and collaboration with others.

All applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.


Blueprint Medicines’ mission is to dramatically improve the lives of patients with genomically defined diseases. Our singular focus is to use our deep understanding of the genetic blueprint of cancer and other diseases driven by the abnormal activation of kinases to craft highly selective medicines aimed at eradicating these diseases.

We don’t think in small steps. We think in giant leaps.

We are driven by the pursuit of new ideas, new innovations, and new ways of thinking.

We know that what each and every one of us does matters and that our success depends on our ability to work together. We believe we are at our best as a company when our employees are thriving and foster a culture that provides opportunities to grow and develop professionally, while also having fun.
