Cambridge
£35k to £55k DoE plus package

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

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.
