Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals discovers and develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Our employees are nimble, science-driven, innovative professionals. In just the past six years, 12 of the medicines we’ve created have entered clinical human trials.  Three of those 12 are already in Phase 3 trials.  Those are some impressive results that you won’t see from other pharmaceutical companies.  That’s because we don’t follow a blueprint – we write our own.

A career at Arrowhead offers the opportunity to collaborate with top notch scientists to rapidly discover and develop RNAi-based therapeutics in a variety of indications to add to our growing pipeline.  Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, our therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep, and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specified gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Our RNAi-based therapeutics are at the leading edge with the potential to bring life changing treatments for patients.

Arrowhead’s corporate headquarters is located in Pasadena, CA. Just north of Los Angeles and resting in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Pasadena is known for its natural scenic beauty, vibrant cultural and academic environment, and rich architectural setting.

Research and development activities are in Madison, WI and San Diego, California. Arrowhead’s research and development group includes fully integrated capabilities for chemistry, biology, ADME, and toxicology. We have invested heavily in our research workspaces to make sure our top-notch scientists can continue to quickly change the world in meaningful ways.

Arrowhead offers competitive salaries and an excellent benefits package to its employees. If you are the best-of-the-best at what you do, collaborative, and willing to think creatively, we think you’re going to love working here.

Arrowhead is an equal opportunity employer.
