Senior Scientist or Principal Scientist in protein engineering, expression and purification
We are looking for a senior or principal scientist in protein engineering, expression and purification. We expect the candidate to be able to confidently devise and adapt project plans in discussion with clients, to efficiently manage projects as they progress as a result of their own experimental work and by working together with other scientists both within Peak Proteins and in client organisations. The role provides a great opportunity for someone to have a major impact on the science, business and growth of a small and dynamic company.
To be considered you must be able to demonstrate excellent problem solving skills and extensive experience in many of the techniques involved in protein expression and protein purification using a wide range of different systems and methods. Ideally you will have a PhD in Biochemistry or a related discipline and you must be able to communicate clearly in both written and oral correspondence. Good collaborative skills are also viewed as essential to develop successful client relationships. Previous pharmaceutical company or contract research organisation (CRO) experience is an advantage but is not essential. Importantly however you should show the self-motivation required to help drive the business forward and to develop your own scientific and commercial skills.
Peak Proteins is a vibrant and growing CRO that provides research services to clients globally. These services include the engineering of tailored proteins for a variety of different end-uses such as biochemical screening, biophysics, diagnostics and biologics discovery. In-addition we perform protein structure determination by X-ray crystallography and have extensive experience with a wide range of proteins. Our passion is to provide clients with the protein related tools and information they need to successfully progress their projects.
Peak Proteins is located on the Alderley Park site in Cheshire; home to a rapidly expanding number of small and medium sized life science businesses The beautiful site is only 18 miles from the heart of Manchester and has easy access to the Peak District, Snowdonia and Lake District national parks.
