Job description

Anjarium is a privately held, early-stage biotechnology company focused on creating a new class of non-viral gene therapies to deliver more predictable, enduring, and inclusionary ways to tackle genetic disease throughout a patient’s lifetime. The Company’s versatile platform aims to leverage breakthrough science and expertise at the interface of genetic medicine, synthetic biology and nanoparticle engineering to generate a pipeline of advanced gene therapies with unique competitive advantages over current viral-vector based gene therapies.  We are backed by leading international and strategic investors Abingworth, Gimv, Omega Funds, Pfizer Ventures and Surveyor Capital (a Citadel company).

Currently headquartered at Biotechnopark in Zurich, Switzerland, we are rapidly expanding our team and are looking for talented and creative individuals, driven by patient outcomes, to join us. Our team is passionate about building a new generation of durable genetic medicines for life-threatening diseases while pushing forward the frontiers of gene therapy.

About the Role:
The candidate will support on-going nanoparticle formulation development activities to advance the platform technology and pipeline projects. This is unique opportunity to contribute experimentally, as well as intellectually, and want to be part of a dynamic team where your contributions are both essential and valued.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Synthesize, characterize and functionally evaluate lipid nanoparticle (LNP) formulations
  • Perform analytical characterization of LNPs.
  • Analyze LNP performance and molecular attributes in vitro
  • Work independently and as part of a collaborative team to design, plan, and execute experiments to facilitate in vitro and in vivo evaluation of LNP formulations
  • Develop methodologies to assess LNP quality attributes
  • Utilize design of experiments (DOE) approaches to develop novel LNP formulations


  • Degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Bioengineering or related field, BSc (6+ years), MSc (4+) or PhD (1+) years of industry experience required
  • Solid understanding of experimental design and experience with regard to nanoparticle formulation, characterization and functionality
  • Familiarity of intracellular trafficking mechanisms, endocytotic pathways, and assay design relevant to understanding cellular uptake and vesicle trafficking preferred
  • Detail oriented, be able to recognize subtle trends in data, and possess an ability to grasp the big picture
  • Excellent written and verbal skills in English
