Research Scientist or Engineer
Micro- and molecular biologist
At Eligo, we are passionate about developing new drugs to address unmet medical needs.
We are building a platform technology based on phage engineering to produce Eligobiotics to target a wide range of bacterial species. With such a capability, Eligo is poised to lead the new generation of precision microbiome engineering companies.
We are a six-year-old biotechnology company, spun out of MIT and Rockefeller University, and based in Paris, France. We have raised more than 20 million euros from leading investors in Silicon Valley and France to develop next-generation drugs addressing issues such as antibiotic resistance and diseases associated with the microbiome.
Eligo has been elected as one of the 30 Most Innovative Companies by the World Economic Forum, has received international awards for pioneering work in the field of synthetic biology, and has been featured in international media and scientific journals such as Nature Biotechnology, The New York Times, the BBC, The Economist, and Science.
Eligo has attracted top talent from all over the world, currently numbering over 40 Eligonauts from 10 countries, all driven, passionate, and motivated to impact the world by applying innovative research to save lives.
If you thrive in fast-paced environments, are excited to solve real-world problems with cutting-edge science, and are looking for an opportunity to develop your skills, we want to hear from you!
As part of the Discovery team, you will strategically construct and characterize bacterial and phage collections that are associated with a wide range of diseases and then develop synthetic biology tools for these collections.
You will de-risk the technical aspects of potential novel targets by creating know-how and technologies for handling and genetically engineering bacteria and phages.
By leveraging your curiosity and eagerness to learn, you will be among the first researchers to have a shot at taming unexplored bacteria and phages. You will have the opportunity to oversee the progression of novel and promising targets from their initial assessment through the engineering and development pipelines.
Your contributions will have a direct, tangible impact on the shaping of Eligo’s pipeline as projects arise and progress from the benchtop to the clinic!
