Has SARS CoV-2 or monkeypox piqued your interest in biosecurity and pandemic preparedness? Do you have an interest in infectious disease and / or global health?
Through our innovative diagnostic platform, based on our proprietary qPCR-enabling technology, PANDAA, we are committed to providing access to infectious disease diagnostic that address longstanding challenges in global health, and which improve both the quality of patient care and healthcare cost-efficiency across the world.
Viral genetic diversity has been a major hurdle in the development of numerous diagnostic assays. One very prominent example is false negatives COVID-19 test results by SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Aldatu designed and implemented one of the first COVID-19 tests in New England, allowing major Boston hospitals to rapidly implement testing very early in the pandemic. Aldatu’s PANDAA qDx™ SARS-CoV-2 test—which is sold to clinical labs in a number of countries—leveraged the core features of our PANDAA technology to enable uniquely durable detection of SARS-CoV-2. Like our other diagnostics, this offers distinct longevity and utility for testing despite changes that may arise as viruses continues to evolve.
Our expanding R&D and product portfolios includes products for drug-resistant HIV, COVID-19 detection and variant genotyping, and viral hemorrhagic fevers.
We are seeking highly-motivated and talented research associate to join our Assay Development team. Successful applicants will possess strong molecular biology skills and a demonstrated interest in global health and / or infectious disease. Our new team member will work closely with our senior research team to design and execute the development and validation of PANDAA-based diagnostic products, focusing on developing the first universal diagnostic for the detection and differentiation ebolavirus and marburgvirus, recognized by the WHO as a significant pandemic risk.
To be successful in this role, you are expected to have a minimum of one year’s post-graduate experience in an academic or biotech setting, be independently motivated, goal oriented, technically competent, and work effectively in a team environment. You should be willing to commit a minimum of two years as there are substantial growth opportunities within the company for the capable candidate.
To apply, please fill out the online application form. Candidates should also upload a cover letter and CV (including publication list, if applicable) in the form prior to submission.
Aldatu is unable to sponsor employment-based visas at this time. Relocation assistance may be available for qualified candidates. No employment agencies, please.
