Olgram biotech company

Olgram biotech company: Olgram is a biotechnology company, that fights against antibiotic persistence by developing 2 programs: i) the discovery and development of new anti-infectives and ii) the development of immunostimulatory molecules based on new chemical entity found in algae. The research activities are organized around 2 research centers, one in Nantes and one in Archamps.

The successful candidate will work in Archamps and Geneva, to set up a screening plateforme and perform the non regulatory preclinical experiments in the context of the development of new anti-persister molecules. The company has the ambition to strongly grow in the near future and become a leader in this field of antibiotic persistence.

To enable the further development of the company Olgram combines several state-of-the art skills with approaches in clinical pharmacology, immunology and microbiology, which enables development of innovative molecules and unique and original therapies.

Terms and conditions

We offer a permanent position, and a competitive salary. Special missions within Olgram company could entitle you to extra allowances based on funding.

  • Experience in microbiological techniques/assays
  • Affinity/experience with use of animal handling
  • experience with in vitro experiments is a plus
  • Affinity/experience with statistics;
  • Experience in molecular biological techniques is of added value (e.g. transformation of strains, qPCR/PCR, sequencing, westernblots);
  • Strong interest in antimicrobial drug research;
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills to organize research with both academics and biotechnology company;
  • Good communication (verbal and writing) skills in English; French is a plus but not mandatory.
  • Confirmed capacity to design experiment, write high-level scientific reports
  • Interested in participating in the life of the laboratory and the company.
  • Independent and creative team player.


We discovered new molecules with new and unique anti-infective properties, notably the ability to specifically destroy persistent bacteria. Now the is looking to further develop those molecules and more specifically it will be the role of the successful candidate to set up the models to study chronicity, find the mechanism of action and perform all non regulatory experiments to develop the molecule into a drug.



We create a company that will save the life of many patients while creating a virtuous industrial process.
