Projects typically include; custom monoclonal and polyclonal antibody production, bulk production of suspension adapted cell lines in serum and protein free culture and expression and purification of recombinant proteins in mammalian or prokaryotic cell culture.

We are currently seeking a Protein Expression & Purification Scientist who can assist in all aspects of running a small and dynamic biotechnology company. The vacancy is predominantly laboratory-based with the successful candidate expected to be involved in a wide range of projects from inception to final product analysis.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Bulk-scale expression and production of antibodies or recombinant proteins in mammalian cell culture or prokaryotic expression systems, utilising molecular biology techniques (vector design, transfection/transformation, DNA preparation etc),
  • Purifying the produced bio-molecules using a variety of chromatography techniques (Protein A/G, HIS-tag, GST-tag, IEX) and platforms (AKTA, HPLC) and characterising their purity and stability using a range of analytical methods (ELISA, SEC, SDS-PAGE and Western blotting)
  • Maintenance of the ISO:9001 quality system, managing resources, training junior employees and assisting in the running of a busy laboratory (i.e. purchasing, maintenance of equipment)

Skills Required:

  • The successful candidate must have a minimum of a B.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in a relevant biological science, along with significant experience in protein expression and purification techniques, either in academia or industry.
