POSITIVE IMPACT THROUGH INNOVATION

We're always on the lookout for people who share our passion for improving patient care.

AVAILABLE POSITIONS

Associate Scientist

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.

Who you are

• We are seeking talented individuals who will embrace our mission and flourish in a dynamic, rigorous, and entrepreneurial environment.

• The successful candidate will have a strong track record in experimental science or applied engineering. Experience with microbiology, microfluidics, or assay development is considered a plus.

• The successful candidate will combine a thorough understanding of scientific principles with analytical rigor to innovate at the intersection of physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science.

• The successful candidate will be insightful, highly motivated, capable of working independently, and enjoy working in a collaborative setting.

• Most of all, we value individuals who are excellent communicators with relentless initiative, adaptability, and problem-solving skills.

• Candidates should have a BS in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science, Biology or a related discipline with at least three years of hands-on laboratory research experience.

How you will contribute

• Generate critical data and present results to technical team.

• Work closely with other scientists and engineers to develop next generation anti-microbial susceptibility in vitro diagnostic products and technologies.

• Perform work in a BSL-2 laboratory including processing clinical specimens, bacterial culture propagation and maintenance, and susceptibility testing.

• Assume responsibility for timely completion of projects, consistent with the project critical path.

• Conceive and conduct experimentation with guidance from senior team members from project inception through product launch.

• Optimize and troubleshoot microfluidic devices and associated data.

• Effectively adjust to changing priorities.

• Manage, capture, and present data: accurately and consistently recording experimental methods, materials, and results.

• Analyze data, form conclusions, and determine future experimental plans.

• Work under the supervision of scientists and engineers to conduct research.
