Position title
VP of Synthetic Biology

Newton Colmore is working with an exciting biotechnology company based in Cambridge and we are actively looking to find a VP of Synthetic Biology to lead on strategy and commercialisation.

This role would be perfect for an experience leader with an entrepreneurial drive to deliver innovation across the broad field of biotechnology, from bioprocessing and biomanufacturing technology, through to life science instrumentation that utilise microfluidics and AI.

Working as the face of the business you will be taking lead on highly complex development projects that utilise biology, engineering, and machine learning to solve complex biotech challenges. You will also hold responsibility for strategy and innovation as well as looking at new areas and markets where the company’s products can be deployed. This key role will help drive the business forward with new ideas and will provide you with a rewarding and autonomous environment where you can build your team significantly.

You will be leading a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers and will be managing stakeholders throughout the full development process, from initial concept through to deployment and/or biomanufacturing.

To be successful in this role you will need to have significant experience within biotechnology, ideally within synthetic biology and bioprocessing and understand how to implement strategies on a global scale. This will ideally be coupled with strong academics and knowledge of a mix of applications for synthetic biology that spans different sectors.

The company are offering market-leading, tailored packages to secure the right people for their roles. This is coupled with excellent training and development, profit sharing bonuses as well as providing state-of-the-art labs and workspaces for their team.

We are open to people who are already in a senior role and people looking to take a step up in responsibility, as well as being open on which area of biotech you have gained your experience.
