PopVax is an Indian biotechnology company based in Hyderabad building a novel thermostable, low-cost, and safe second-generation mRNA platform for rationally-designed broadly-protective multi-epitope vaccines. We’re starting with a 4-8 °C refrigerator-stable booster vaccine candidate that is intended to protect against the entire sarbecovirus sub-family, including current and future strains of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus which causes COVID-19), and some other beta-coronaviruses such as MERS-CoV.

We are looking for a genomic scientist with deep expertise in high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing, in particular the use of NGS platforms from companies like Illumina, PacBio, and Oxford Nanopore, as well as classical Sanger sequencing, along with the associated computational platforms and tools. The ideal candidate will have end-to-end experience in performing sequencing — including from sample processing all the way through data analysis— in fast-turnaround settings where quality cannot be compromised. Experience in diagnosing and troubleshooting day-to-day issues with sequencing hardware is a huge plus.

We offer very competitive compensation, comprehensive health insurance covering immediate family (including pre-existing conditions), and, most importantly, a collaborative work environment focused on solving the cutting-edge multidisciplinary challenges of our novel mRNA platform.
