We’re Looking for Passionate Scientists & Engineers!

A small Company With Big Benefits 

  • Develop first-of-a-kind, lifelong therapies from influenza to cancers

  • Earn a competitive salary with stock option incentives in an emerging company

  • Generous health and 401k plans, with employer matching

  • Collaborate closely with leading academic labs across the world

  • State-of-the-art biology, engineering, and computational labs in the heart of NYC

Software & Robotics Engineer

  • About You:

    • You are a talented software engineer, with significant experience integrating software and hardware to control robotic devices.

    • You're passionate about applying your engineering skills to develop automated devices to develop & test novel medical therapies.

    • Ideally, you would have deep experience with Python/C#, robotics, embedded systems and communication protocols, full-stack engineering (back-end/front-end), database development and integration, feedback / control systems, and image processing.

    • These experiences aside, your passion for designing new platforms to treat important diseases is most important to us!

    • We can also teach you cutting-edge biology and machine learning. So you’ll also have a chance to help us design our therapies--from HIV to cancers.

    • Experience: At least 5 years of experience involving coding (e.g., Python, C++) and significant experience integrating your code with hardware, embedded control systems.

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Masters

Director: Gene Therapies & Viral Therapeutics

  • About You:

    • You're a highly accomplished expert in gene therapy, virology (or oncolytic viruses) excited to help us expand our therapeutic portfolio.

    • We are especially interested in scientists with significant PI or biotech experience. We are looking for candidates who can play a role in guiding future research directions, while also helping optimize our existing platform technologies.

    • The ideal candidate would have extensive PI/management experience at a leading university or company -- including experience mapping strategic and research directions, funding scientific research, and mentoring junior staff members. We would always appreciate a candidate excited to get his or her hands dirty, as needed, in order to either guide or perform critical experiments.

    • Beyond the significant PI and management level expertise you would bring, specific biology expertise we’re looking for, includes deep experience with: gene therapy and viral vectors (e.g., AAV, adenovirus, and lentivirus), gene editing technologies (e.g., CRISPR-Cas), viral reverse genetics systems, high-throughput assay development, as well as knowledge of the suite of standard molecular, cell and viral biology techniques.

    • Experience: The ideal candidate would have >7 years PI/management experience at a leading university or biotech — but who still has the passion and grit to build a small company (we like grit)!

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Doctorate (Required) 

Senior Scientist: Virology & Gene Therapies

  • About You:

    • You a talented gene therapy or virology expert interested in helping design and engineer therapeutics candidates and platforms, from influenza to cancers (e.g., oncolytcis).

    • You have deep experience with: molecular biology techniques, viral and gene therapy vectors (e.g., AAV, adenovirus, or lentivirus), viral reverse genetics systems, tissue culture, and standard molecular, cell and viral biology techniques (e.g., qPCR, flow cytometry, molecular cloning, and virus cultivation/quantification).

    • Ultimately, we're looking for excellent and creative scientists who are passionate about treating unmet diseases.

    • If you’re interested, we can also teach you cutting-edge robotics, engineering and mathematical modeling—which our team uses to predict and test the safety and efficacy of therapies we build. We have a growing team of software, mechanical and electrical engineers.

    • Experience: An ideal candidate has a Ph.D. and at least 5 years of hands-on, wet-lab experience involving gene therapies, virology or cancer therapeutics (e.g., oncolytics).

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Doctorate (Required)
