A pioneer of cutting-edge biotechnology products in Cambridge are looking for a senior biochemical assay scientist to complement their research team.

This is an excellent opportunity where you will be able to make a real difference with your work, developing products that aim to improve the patient’s life, taking therapeutics from inception all the way through to clinical trials.

You will be utilising your biochemical assay development expertise to take lead on the creation of new, novel biochemical assays, in particular assays for enzyme activity, kinetics, and Protein-DNA interactions. This will include utilising techniques such as surface plasmon resonance, whilst working on thermostability and LC-MS.

Reporting directly to the CSO you will be afforded with the freedom and autonomy to make this role your own and will be provided with all the tools you need to be a success in this position.

The company’s target time to market is two to three years and they are well backed by their parent organisation. This means that you get all the benefits and fun of working in a fast-paced start-up, coupled with long-term security.

The company are also looking at new ways to implement microfluidic technology and machine learning algorithms to speed up processes and improve accuracy.

To be considered for this exciting role you will need to have the following;

  • Expertise with developing biochemical assays
  • Experience with developing enzyme kinetic assays from scratch
  • Knowledge of medium to high throughput assays, quality control and validation.
  • ELISA, EMSA and pre-existing SPR knowledge is extremely beneficial.

The company are open-minded on this hire and place a lot of emphasis on the personality of the scientist and so will provide training if you are perhaps missing some of the experience needed for this role.

In exchange for your skills and expertise, the company offer a highly competitive package and the chance to join an exceptional team of up-and-coming scientists and bring new ideas to realisation. They also provide a bonus programme and healthcare/pension options as well as a car allowance.
