Curious by nature. Rebellious at heart.

We have only recent­ly start­ed to appre­ci­ate the impor­tance of the col­lec­tive inter­ac­tions of these bac­te­ria and oth­er micro­bial con­sor­tia as they form com­mu­ni­ties of microor­gan­isms known as micro­bio­mes. Togeth­er, we can har­ness the pow­er of the human micro­bio­me to devel­op nov­el ther­a­pies and improve patient outcomes.

Passionate, driven innovators committed to inclusivity, diversity, and respect

We strong­ly believe that a diverse team cre­ates the most inno­v­a­tive envi­ron­ment. We are con­stant­ly seek­ing new col­leagues with dif­fer­ent back­grounds, per­spec­tives, and expe­ri­ences. We are proud of the cul­ture we have estab­lished to date, posi­tion­ing us at the fron­tier for devel­op­ing nov­el ther­a­peu­tics for micro­bio­me-address­able con­di­tions. Our core val­ues are:

  1. Respect
  2. Col­lab­o­ra­tion
  3. Effec­tive communication
  4. Prob­lem solving
  5. Sci­en­tif­ic rigor

I like work­ing for Kan­vas because of the awe­some team of peo­ple. I feel that the team’s inquis­i­tive and col­lab­o­ra­tive cul­ture fos­ters great sci­ence and is help­ing me learn and grow as a sci­en­tist every day.

The col­lab­o­ra­tive work envi­ron­ment at Kan­vas fuels inno­va­tion and allows diverse skill sets to come togeth­er to tack­le com­plex sci­en­tif­ic chal­lenges. The gen­uine cama­raderie among team mem­bers not only improves our over­all pro­duc­tiv­i­ty but also cre­ates a pos­i­tive and uplift­ing atmos­phere that makes every day a plea­sure to come to work.

Part of the rea­son I enjoy work­ing at Kan­vas is get­ting the abil­i­ty to work with break­through micro­bial research, com­bin­ing next-gen imag­ing with liv­ing con­sor­tia-based therapeutics.

We cur­rent­ly have lab­o­ra­to­ries in both Prince­ton, NJ and San Fran­cis­co, CA, and most job post­ings will be spe­cif­ic to one location.
