       Exelixis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (EPI) is a rapidly growing, well-funded, privately held
       biopharmaceutical company whose mission is to identify novel therapeutic targets for
       drug discovery by elucidating the biochemical pathways involved in human diseases.
       Our current research programs are focused on metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative
       diseases, and oncology. We use a combination of invertebrate genetics (C. elegans and
       Drosophila), genomics, and vertebrate biology to identify key molecules in the
       pathways contributing to these disease states. EPI is also committed to developing new
       approaches to the control of agricultural pest species. We are applying our core
       technology in genetics and genomics to the discovery of specific targets for crop
       protection and animal health. We currently have openings for talented individuals to
       join our dynamic team.
