Position: Data Mining Volunteers

Our Mission

Flatley Discovery Lab is an independent not-for-profit laboratory for Cystic Fibrosis drug discovery research and development. Our goal is to create patient value by accelerating development of new treatments for CF. We are focused on discovering small molecules that help restore misfolded F508del-CFTR protein functions.

Flatley Discovery Lab, a not-for- profit for Cystic Fibrosis research lab, is seeking volunteers to join our growing team of scientists and researchers in Charlestown, MA.

We will consider candidates from recent graduates to retired professionals.


Available Positions

Literature/Data Mining Researchers who will become part of a ten member team, searching for novel compounds from literature and other subscriber tools. We are currently seeking creative and highly motivated scientists to join our data mining research group. The role will entail using PubMed, SciFinder, GeneGo and other database and/or computational tools to identify cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) ligands that improve function and trafficking of misfolded F508del-CFTR. This position requires working with a team of researchers but individually selecting compounds that then will undergo biological testing in our lab. Team members will then get to choose and have compounds tested in the lab monthly.
