Scientist – Microbial Synthetic Biology – Non-model bacteria and phage engineering
At Eligo, we are passionate about developing new drugs to address unmet medical needs!
Eligo is building a platform technology that engineers phage particles (Eligobiotics) to deliver therapeutic DNA to (re)program a wide range of bacterial species in-situ. With such a capability, Eligo is developing a new generation of drugs allowing precision microbiome engineering.
To be able to translate our research to the clinic, we need to design and engineer bacterial strains, therapeutic DNA circuits and phage genomes which will be used to produce our Eligobiotics.
We are therefore looking for a synthetic biologist who has experience with non-model bacteria engineering and/or phage engineering and is excited to tackle the ambitious challenges of engineering non-model bacteria and their associated phages to develop new Eligobiotics.
