Senior Formulation Scientist - Biotech Start-up - Cambridge

A growing biotechnology company, based in Cambridge, are currently looking for a formulation and quality control scientist to join their fledgling team.

Working within a laboratory environment, along with Biochemists, Engineers and Physicists, you will be a key member on the development team. You will be charged with translating the chemical and biological components and processes from research into production as the company complete the design of their first product. This will also involve ensuring the quality of the chemical and biological components that ultimately go into their products and for acting as the bridge between their multidisciplinary R&D team and their contract manufacturers.

You will also be responsible for managing the scale-up and delivery of enzymes for production and developing bioassays for their quality control.

This is a well-backed start-up who have industry veterans on their board, steering them to make this product a success and allowing them to ensure future products and developments are class leading.

To be successful in this role, you will need to have experience with developing and documenting quality control assays and specifications, coupled with a strong academic record in biochemistry or molecular biology. More specific experience will need to include enzyme formulations and nucleic acid manipulation.

Due to working in a multidisciplinary team, you will need to be able to communicate your ideas and results clearly and with confidence, both in person and via emails/journals.

This organisation is offering you the chance to work on cutting edge life improving technologies, an excellent starting salary and benefits package (including life assurance, medical cover, share scheme and other benefits you don't normally obtain with a start-up company).

If you are looking to test your scientific knowledge and be a part of a team of scientific experts, make an application now. I'm expecting a lot of interest in this role, so you do not want to miss out by waiting too long to apply.
