We are working with a Cambridge based Biotech start-up who secured a staggering Series B fundraise earlier this year. They are now looking to significantly increase the size of each department to enable the commercialisation of their technology.
Scientist, Surface Chemistry Team
This role will have an even split between lab and office time and will be liaising with multidisciplinary teams in order to integrate surface chemistry into the final product.
• Industrial experience in the development of functional surfaces:
o Self-assembled monolayers
o Polymer coatings
• PhD in Chemistry or Life Science related discipline or MSc + proven industrial experience
• Knowledge of organic chemistry and bioconjugation techniques
• Working experience with surface characterisation techniques and processes
o X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)
o Fluorescence microscopy
o Microarray printing
Having knowledge of QC and formulation testing would be highly advantageous, as well as working knowledge of technology transfer from R&D into manufacturing although not essential for this role.
This unique opportunity comes with an extremely attractive benefits package
