Our hiring practices

Novavax does not accept unsolicited resumes from vendors, including recruitment agencies and/or search firms. Approved recruiting vendors must get approval from the Head of Human Resources before submitting any resumes to Novavax. Novavax will not pay a fee to any recruiting vendor, agency, or firm that does not have a valid and current agreement on file.

Vendors, approved or not, must not contact Novavax hiring managers regarding these matters. At this time we are not adding vendors to our vendor list. However, if interested in future consideration, please feel free to submit your company’s information. Company information should include the agency name, contact name, address, phone number, fax, and recruiting specialties. We will refer to these files should our needs change in the future and we are interested in your services.

If you are a candidate in need of assistance or an accommodation in the application process, please contact [email protected].

We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity at all levels. All individuals, regardless of personal characteristics, are encouraged to apply.

The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to access and analyze data more easily.

Protect yourself from fraudulent job offers

Novavax has become aware of people impersonating company representatives who make fraudulent job offers and often ask for sensitive personal and financial information from job seekers.  These people often invite candidates to online chats or use fake emails to impersonate Novavax employees.

At Novavax, we will never ask for personal financial information during any step of the recruiting process, nor do we charge job seekers fees as part of this process. All Novavax jobs will be posted on our career site and all correspondence will be sent by a recruiting representative with an email addressing ending in “@Novavax.com.”

If you have questions or if you are unsure of the legitimacy of a communication you have received, please contact us.
