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're looking for an energetic and creative lawyer to work with us across the wide range of legal issues that concern an Indian startup with global ambitions in next-generation vaccines and therapeutics.

While we're ably represented by Arogya Legal on most matters in India, we want to have somebody working with us directly in our Hyderabad lab every day to coordinate our legal strategies across regulation, government programs, import and export, fundraising, and intellectual property, working with external counsel in India and abroad as necessary.

Flawless command of the English language and being able to draft error-free memos, MoUs, and agreements with speed and ease are must haves.

Previous experience in one or more of pharma, tech, and venture capital is an added advantage.

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.
