Immunology / Cell Biology Applications Scientist (26934)

Cambridge with global travel
to £45,000 DoE + Benefits

Providing technical expertise for cell-based technology applications

Have you recently completed your PhD (or about to hand in your thesis)? Are you a postdoc looking for a new challenge? This is an exciting opportunity for a life scientist to move away from research into a more commercially oriented role.

The company develops technology based on cell-sorting applications for cell-therapies. As an Applications Scientist, you will be a technical representative of the company – working closely with customers (visiting them at their labs in the UK, Europe and US). You’ll be the glue between customers and the company’s in-house engineering / science teams so that new instruments / products meet requirements. You’ll provide expert knowledge and gain market insight so products are developed with customers in mind.

Whilst the role will be varied, collaborative and include participation at conferences and exhibitions, you would also spend some time in a R&D lab working on testing and making suggestions to improve the products.

Your background:

  • You’ll have a PhD in immunology or cell biology (or equivalent project experience).
  • You’ll know your way around an immunology / cell biology lab, and have experience with relevant tools and experimental protocols.
  • You’ll be familiar with cell sorting instruments and methodologies including cytometry standards.
  • You’ll have great communication skills, demonstrated through past presentations.
  • You’ll be a curious individual who enjoys travelling.

Interested applicants do need full rights to work in the UK and hold a valid driving licence. On offer is an excellent opportunity to develop your business and commercial skills, gaining relevant industry experience, and building your career away from the lab. This also includes an excellent remunerations package including a wide-range of benefits (bonus, enhanced employer’s pension contribution, and private medical insurance).
