Current Opportunities

Don’t you want to work for a company that is making a difference in the world? NBACC does just that! NBACC is a one-of-a-kind, non-profit facility dedicated to defending the nation against biological threats. Its work supports intelligence assessments, preparedness planning, response, emerging threat characterization and bioforensic analyses. It is the first national laboratory created by DHS in response to the Amerithrax attacks of 2001 and has been operated by BNBI since 2006. Since its inception, NBACC and its staff have filled critical shortfalls in our scientific knowledge of biological agents needed to defend the public from acts of terrorism.
