At Eligo, we want to kill bad bugs and bad bugs only. But bad bugs are numerous. Therefore, our mission is to engineer an arsenal of eligobiotics capable of injecting our CRISPR/Cas system into a wide range of bacteria from the skin, the gut or the lungs.

Our synthetic biology platform relies on 3 main processes. First, we tap into nature to find and isolate wild-type phages that can inject their DNA into the bacterial strain of interest. Second, we engineer bacterial strains to assemble and produce synthetic non-replicative delivery vectors based on isolated phages and capable of incorporating our CRISPR/Cas system. Finally, we engineer the vectors composition to extend their host-range and widen the delivery spectrum of our eligobiotic.

We are therefore currently looking for experts in – molecular biology, DNA assembly, synthetic biology, genome refactoring, phage biology, protein interaction or related fields – to work with us on one of the most exciting synthetic-biology based drug-development platform.

[ Wanted: Bioengineers and Phage Experts]      

From the engineering of phages and bacterial strains to produce non-replicative synthetic CRISPR/Cas DNA circuits packaged in phage-based delivery vectors to the modification of phage capsids’ host-range to precisely control the delivery spectrum of eligobiotics. (Full-time) 

• PhD in molecular biology, synthetic biology, phage biology, microbiology or related field
• Experience with molecular biology and/or genetic engineering of microbes and/or bioinformatics

• Strong communication and interpersonal skills
• Interested in working in a dynamic and fast paced working environment
• Professional proficiency in English
