We are now seeking a highly skilled and motivated Scientist or Senior Scientist to join our infectious Disease Vaccines team.

Evaxion Biotech is pioneering the field of immune informatics by developing novel vaccines for prevention of infectious diseases and personalized cancer therapies. For this purpose, Evaxion has developed two in silico machine learning platforms, capable of predicting, ranking and optimizing epitopes and antigens, which elicits protective immune responses. We are rapidly expanding our staff of highly competent, motivated employees to enable successful transition of our lead vaccine candidates into clinical development and are therefore looking for a Scientist or Senior Scientist to further strengthen our Infectious Disease Vaccines team. At Evaxion, you will be working in an entrepreneurial, innovative and high-paced environment, where state-of-the-art technologies are being translated to the clinic for the future benefit of patients.

Your role

The successful candidate will work in project teams to develop vaccines against bacterial infectious diseases focusing on activities in lead selection, lead development and preclinical development. Your highest priority will be to ensure executional excellence of preclinical laboratory and animal studies. The position involves a considerable amount of hands on laboratory work with both in vivo and in vitro activities. You will be responsible for setting up, executing, reporting and evaluating preclinical challenge models with bacterial pathogens and associated immunoassays. Also, you will lead scientific staff in the laboratory (technicians and students). You will work closely with highly skilled and dedicated scientists and technicians in a dynamic organization to drive successful completion of studies, meet project timelines and deliverables. The position requires enthusiasm, passion, attention to details, and a commitment to improve the lives of those afflicted with infectious diseases. The fast development of the company also requires a very flexible mindset and an open attitude to changes.

    • Critically analyze data, document, report and present results as well as provide recommendations
    • Ensure scientifically sound, state-of-the-art methods are being applied in laboratories/animal facilities while constantly working to improve and develop methods further
    • Be on top of infectious disease laboratory activities to ensure activities progress as planned
    • Lead technicians and students in their day-to-day worw
    • PhD degree and 3 years’ Post Doc experience in Life science with clear focus on human bacterial pathogens; microbiology, immunology, host-pathogen interaction, at private sector or academia
    • Solid hands-on experience with preclinical mouse infection models and related immunoassays with bacterial pathogens, meeting state-of-the-art lab criteria
    • Solid understanding of immunology
    • Preferred experience from pharma industry with documented know how from drug development, alternatively similar experience from academia
    • Technical/scientific management experience; leading technicians and supervising students
    • Outstanding written and oral communication skills in English
    • Very structured personality and ability to drive key activities to completion, set goals and consistently deliver according to plan
    • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
    • Hands on experience with S. aureus using in vivo and in vitro models is considered a great benefit

About Evaxion Biotech

Since 2008, Evaxion Biotech has been pioneering discovery of antigens and neo-epitopes for vaccines using artificial intelligence, with the mission to solve some of the world’s most significant challenges to human health. Evaxion has constructed a robust product engine for the development of novel vaccines and therapies based on our two platforms, PIONEER and EDEN. Using state of the art in silico tools, the platforms integrate big data, artificial intelligence and supercomputing to predict, rank and optimize epitopes and antigens inducing a highly protective immune response. EDEN enables rapid and accurate discovery of novel antigens that elicit a highly cross-protective immune response in any bacterial pathogen. PIONEER has been constructed to identify epitopes of mutated proteins that will fire up the body’s natural immune responses to fight off the cancerous cells, with two ongoing first-in-man clinical studies.
