Position title
Senior Biochemist – Therapeutics

Newton Colmore is working with a drug discovery company in Cambridge, and we are looking for a senior biochemist to complement their research team.

This is an excellent opportunity where you will be able to make a real difference with your work, leading the company’s biochemistry function, working closely with a multidisciplinary team of scientists.

You will be utilising your biochemical assay development and biochemistry experience and will take lead on the creation of novel biochemical assay research and experiments, working closely with CROs and the company’s partners.

The main area of research will be focused on small molecule characterisation and development within enzyme kinetics, inhibitor assays, and DNA or protein interaction, as well as running medium to high-throughput screens for novel ligand ID campaigns.

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

  • A thorough understanding of biochemistry, enzymology, and small molecule therapeutics
  • Ideally educated to PhD-level in Biochemistry and experience of managing CROs.
  • Experience with AlphaLISA, HTRF, enzyme kinetics, and DNA binding.
  • Knowledge of covalency would be highly advantageous.

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 package that will be tailored to your expectations and the chance to join an exceptional team of scientists and bring new ideas to realisation. Discretionary bonuses and share options are also available.
