Sterile work to develop fertile innovation opportunities

Are you detail oriented? Do you understand how to follow complex scientific protocols in cell biology? Do you have the hands-on lab skills to nurture cellular tools? Would you like to develop applied diagnostics for drug design and other scientific applications?

We are looking for a pro-active Cell Biology Scientist to join a multidisciplinary-industry team with a mission to develop hardware instruments for complex cell analysis, and apply their technology for clinical approaches, therapies and other innovations. In this role, the Cell Biology Scientist will work closely with end users to pilot procedures and translate them into well-defined workflows.

Background requirements:

  • Strong academic background including 1st / 2.1 in biochemistry or similar from a top ranked university AND a PhD in cell biology.
  • Lead scientific projects, and experience in self-directing work.

Technical requirements:

  • Extensive lab experience with general cell / tissue culture protocols (up to cat. Level 2).
  • Experience with cell line model development including optimisation of cell culturing conditions.
  • Experience with 3D cultures (spheroids or organoids)
  • Additional experience with: molecular biology (qPCR, single cell sequencing); immuno-oncology; or testing of biologic drugs on cells would be desirable.
  • Experience with fluorescence-based assays or high-throughput sequencing would be beneficial.

This is a collaborative team, and so it is expected that applicants have strong communication skills. In return, as well as working with like-minded people, an excellent remuneration package is available.
