Who we are
At Klaris we’re tackling antibiotic resistance, named by the CDC as one of the biggest public health challenges of our time. We use artificial intelligence and single-cell analysis to quickly recognize the bacteria causing an infection and to predict which drugs will cure the infection, even if it is multi-drug-resistant.
But we’re not just invested in combating antibiotic resistance; we’re also invested in our people. Our team is brought together by shared passion for our mission to cure and prevent antibiotic-resistant infections, and we’re driven by our accountability to each other.
Klaris is looking for an Associate Scientist to join our team working at the intersection of artificial intelligence, microfluidics and clinical microbiology to help hospitals combat antibiotic resistance. In this role, you will be responsible for executing experiments to further the development of our platform and working with the rest of our team to build best-in-class diagnostic products.
