Job Description


Spacer Image
Locus Biosciences is an emerging biotechnology company developing precision antimicrobial products that direct the powerful CRISPR-Cas3 nuclease to target and kill bacterial cells by irreversibly destroying DNA. These products avoid currently-known antibiotic resistance mechanisms while sparing non-target bacteria. Locus recently closed a $19M Series A financing led by ARTIS Ventures that will fund the company through completion of a Phase 1 human proof-of-concept study in our first indication in 2019. With the Series A closed, we are advancing conversations with leading pharmaceutical companies who have infectious disease and microbiome partnership interests. While these partnerships may involve one or more of our current lead assets (targeting C. difficile, E. coli, and P. aeruginosa), we also expect to leverage Locus’ CRISPR-Cas3 platform to collaboratively develop products against new targets driven by the partners.

Locus is seeking a business development intern to assist the Vice President, Business Development with a combination of corporate strategy, product strategy, market research/competitive analysis, partnering, fund-raising, intellectual property, investor/public relations, and finance activities.

Locus is a fast-paced and dynamic work environment, so the specific areas of focus for the intern will depend on the activities that are most urgent during the internship period.


This internship requires a commitment of 20-30 hours per week over 6 weeks, and is Flexible in the start date.
This internship is supported in part by a grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center through the Industrial Internship Program.
