As the company grows, our need to be able to scale our processes also grows. During the next phase of technical development, we will be advancing our ability to produce proteins rapidly and at appropriate scale for ever more ambitious experiments and projects. Consequently, we are looking for an individual to join our team and take ownership of scaling our platform.
In this position you will be expected to:
Support various aspects of the technical development work ongoing across the team, by providing material to be used in assays, or for partner work.
Work with the molecular biology team to create bioreactor-stable and efficient production systems, by optimising growth conditions, cell lines and expression constructs.
Work as a unit with the downstream protein purification team to devise and optimise high yielding, high purity production methods, and develop routine analytical packages for quantification and QC.
As a Process Development Scientist, you will be primarily responsible for guiding the development of the NanoSyrinx platform from a scalability perspective. This includes establishing high-yield and efficient bioreactor format expression protocols, as well as contributing to strain and platform genetic optimisation. You will build on this knowledge to ensure a steady supply of research material to the other members of the team and to support partner projects. You will work closely with the other members of the team to devise a compatible and scalable process for the next phase of the company development.
Additionally, for all our roles, the following criteria are:
NanoSyrinx provides a friendly working environment situated at the well-connected University of Warwick’s modern campus. Our company was born out of a close-knit academic community at the University, and we pride ourselves on carrying this through into the company - frequent coffee breaks with your colleagues, and after-work socialising are encouraged (but not mandatory)!
We understand that biology and real life don’t always keep office hours, so we offer flexible working, with competitive allowances for annual leave and parental leave etc.
In addition to competitive salaries, NanoSyrinx operates a discretionary cash bonus scheme (up to 10% of annual salary), with the possibility of Company Options.
NanoSyrinx operates a workplace pension (provided by Aviva), with up to 5% matched employer contributions (further details will be provided in your employment contract).
The opportunity to travel nationally and internationally for professional development and company advancement.
