Position title
Senior Biophysicist – Biotechnology

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a biophysics-focused scientist to join a growing biotech in Cambridge and take technical lead on enhancing the company’s capabilities and technology.

As a biophysics expert you will be taking lead on the design and implementation of high-throughput biochemical assays, whilst building and running studies and working closely with partners and CROs.

You will be joining a multidisciplinary team of scientists and work across a broad spectrum of projects. Because of this we are looking for a biophysicist who loves solving complex scientific problems with a passion for new technology and platforms.

You will be leading research that has multiple downstream functions, from biochemical assay development to structural biology and screening. As a subject matter expert within the company, you will also be responsible for researching into new areas of technology and scientific techniques that could be used in-house to improve both the speed and the accuracy of the company’s work.

The company are making strides in their field and are looking for a senior scientist who can help them achieve their scientific goal; to improve patients lives with new high-impact medicines.

To be considered for this exciting role you will need to have deep knowledge of molecular biophysics matched with a broad understanding of protein science. Additional working knowledge of SPR, MST and x-ray crystallography is highly desirable. Around 70% of your work will be external and so you will need to be experienced with managing complex research projects across multiple stakeholders.
