Consultant Biochemist, Applied Science (26277)

£35k to £55k DoE plus package

Bring your expertise to novel biochemistry and instrumentation projects

Do you have experience in multidisciplinary approaches to scientific applications / tools development and are looking to take that next step in your career?

We are looking for a specific individual:

  • You’ll be bright – likely to have a 1st class degree specialising in biochemistry from a highly-ranked world-class university and a PhD (where you worked with cutting edge experimental biochemistry and spent time with scientists from other disciplines gaining experience in areas such as microfluidics, diagnostics, and protein engineering).
  • You’ll also have an innate interest in business and in areas such as IP, which leads to knowledge of current applied life science commercial trends.
  • You’ll also want a mixed type of career, and the thought of a consultancy position intrigues you as it balances working with clients as well as technical lab work.
  • Ideally if you have gained commercial experience from industry collaborations / placements to founding your own scientific start-up, we’d particularly be interested in hearing from you.

Interested? Please apply with your CV and any additional details in a cover letter.

What to avoid in your application:
Note that we are not looking for niche research experience, it is your applied skills and relevant project work in this area that we’re looking for. Similarly, a long publication list or conferences you’ve attended is not relevant, we prefer to see papers that you made considerable contributions to and / or conferences you’ve spoken at.

Keywords: PhD, Entrepreneurial, IP, Life Science, Biotechnology, Instrumentation,
Molecular Biochemistry, Cellular Biochemistry, Consultancy, Client-Facing, Scientific Applications

Please note: even if you don't have exactly the background indicated, do contact us now if this type of job is of interest - we may well have similar opportunities that you would be suited to. And of course, we always get your permission before submitting your CV to a company.
