Be part of our unique discovery process to create life-saving therapeutics

The Variant Bio Fellowship Program

The Variant Bio Fellowship is a unique opportunity for highly talented individuals to work with the company to form partnerships with populations with exceptional health-related traits and analyze genomic data. Our Fellows can be based in the US or across the globe and have various backgrounds in medicine, biological anthropology, computational biology, statistics, or other life sciences.

  • How does the program work?

    We select Fellows who are curious and have an entrepreneurial mindset to be part of our unique discovery process and catalyze new projects with world-changing potential. It is our philosophy that the value of our Fellows extends beyond the mere executional dimension of their work. As a Fellow you will also join an exceptional network of scientists, and your voice will be included as an important part of the company’s dialogue with partner individuals, populations, and organizations.

    The Variant Bio Fellowship is a paid program, operates remotely on a rolling basis, and requires a minimum of 12 weeks commitment. You will have the rare opportunity of working with an innovative biotech startup and interacting with a talented international team of interdisciplinary scientists, anthropologists, and business leaders.

    We are excited about the opportunity to have Fellows formally join our mission while leveraging their career in biotech or beyond in order to make an impact on human health, and to benefit underrepresented populations around the world.
