Posting Expiry


Gandeeva Therapeutics Inc. is a rapidly growing biotechnology company located in Vancouver, BC that seeks to harness the transformative power of cryo-EM technology and machine learning to design better drugs.  Our methods overcome limitations in the use of X-ray crystallography for drug design and avoid discovery dead ends that can arise from the use of computational docking methods in the absence of experimental validation. Our automated workflows enable determination of relevant 3D structural information at the highest possible resolutions in combination with innovative biochemical methods to explore low-data targets, membrane proteins and protein complexes. Gandeeva seeks to achieve transformative societal impact on public health by revolutionizing drug discovery and by lowering the risk of late-stage clinical failures.

We are building an interdisciplinary and innovative team with biologists, chemists, microscopists, engineers, and software developers who will working closely together in state-of-the-art facilities that provides a stimulating environment reflecting our inclusive and welcoming culture.

We are seeking an experienced Scientist, Computational Biology with demonstrated expertise in protein-related computational biology and structural biology methods and analysis.


  • Develop and implement bioinformatics methods to evaluate structural and functional relationships of proteins based on cryo-EM density maps and other structural features
  • Close engagement in deriving atomic models from experimental and computational data
  • Implement strategic approaches for bioinformatics and molecular dynamics analyses for novel targets, maintaining awareness of the cutting edge of technologies
  • Ability to supervise a team of scientists and technicians (if appointment is at senior level)


  • PhD or equivalent in a relevant biological field, with 3 or more years of relevant experience in the life sciences or biotechnology sector
  • Relevant experience in IT, life sciences, computational biology/bioinformatics, engineering, or computer science
  • Familiarity with molecular dynamics as applied to ligand docking
  • Deep understanding and experience in navigating and interpreting large genomic and structural databases
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to work effectively in a collaborative team environment

Gandeeva Therapeutics Inc. is an equal opportunity employer. A highly competitive compensation package along with comprehensive health benefits will be offered to successful candidates. Come join us in the beautiful city of Vancouver!
