Do you have a proven background in Bioconjugation? Do you have experience of managing research projects to support customers and external stakeholders?

SRG is thrilled to be supporting one of our Biotechnology clients, who provide a comprehensive range of technical solutions from early discovery to drug development. They work with clients from biotech, large pharma and academia, supporting the development and manufacturing of more effective patient treatments. Joining their Bioconjugation Chemistry team, you will be responsible for managing and progressing a number of client projects, providing technical expertise, while managing a small team of supporting scientists.

As Project Leader you will provide conjugation solutions to antibody drug conjugates (ADC), oligonucleotides conjugate, PEGylation and other conjugate development projects.

Ideal candidates will hold a PhD / MSc or equivalent in Chemistry/Protein Biochemistry or a related field, with proven laboratory experience in Bioconjugation, gained within a Biotechnology or Contract Research Organisation. An in-depth knowledge and understanding with Bioconjugation of small molecules (Cytotoxic drugs, fluorescent labels, oligonucleotides) is essential.
