Scientist- Bioinformatician

Biopolis, Singapore
Description

PairX Bio (“PairX”) is a Singapore-based biotech company developing cutting edge immunotherapies against novel cancer neoantigens derived from alternative mRNA splicing. The foundational technology was developed by PairX scientific co-founders Prof. David Epstein and Dr. Raymond Lee at DukeNUS Medical School.


PairX focuses on developing a therapeutic platform that identifies antigen and corresponding T-cell pairs from cancer patients for eventual therapeutic development. PairX has assembled a stellar scientific advisory board and is well-capitalized to develop first-in-class immunotherapies against cancer.


We are looking for a Bioinformatician scientist to join our highly exceptional and diverse scientific team in this exciting venture.
