About Kymera Therapeutics

Kymera Therapeutics is a biotechnology company pioneering a transformative new approach to treating previously untreatable diseases. The company is advancing the field of targeted protein degradation, accessing the body’s innate protein recycling machinery to degrade rather than inhibit dysregulated, disease-causing proteins. Powered by a proprietary predictive modeling capability and a game-changing integrated degradation platform, Kymera is accelerating drug discovery with an unmatched ability to target and degrade the most intractable of proteins, and advance new treatment options for patients.

Job Description

We are seeking a talented Regulatory Affairs professional to join our fast-growing regulatory team and act as the program regulatory lead on one or more Kymera development programs. The ideal candidate is a hands-on, dynamic team player able to navigate complex regulatory requirements across disciplines including CMC, nonclinical and clinical. We are seeking someone with excellent project management, communication, and negotiation skills with experience successfully operating in a small or mid-sized biotech environment. Experience should include directly authoring, managing and overseeing significant regulatory submissions, communicating with health authorities, and providing strategic regulatory guidance to cross functional program teams through early and mid-stage development. This position is an excellent opportunity to play a critical role in the build out of Kymera’s regulatory team and is best suited for a highly motived individual passionate about contributing to the forward progress of a potentially transformative new class of drugs.

Kymera Therapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on advancing the field of targeted protein degradation (TPD), a transformative new approach to address previously intractable disease targets. Kymera’s Pegasus™ TPD platform harnesses the body’s natural protein recycling machinery to degrade disease-causing proteins, with a focus on undrugged nodes in validated pathways currently inaccessible with conventional therapeutics. Our mission is to discover, develop, and commercialize transformative therapies while leading the evolution of targeted protein degradation. Kymera’s goal is to become a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company with a pipeline of novel medicines, with an initial focus on immune-inflammatory diseases and oncology.

In 2021, we plan to continue to grow and strengthen our organizational capabilities to deliver on the potential of inventing a new class of protein degrader medicines for patients. Kymera is rapidly advancing toward the clinic with three programs planned to begin clinical studies this year. We are also actively advancing a broad pipeline of preclinical programs across a wide variety of diseases, both internally and in collaboration with our partners Sanofi and Vertex Pharmaceuticals.
