This is an opportunity to join an exciting drug discovery innovator utilising machine learning to vastly improve the drug discovery process and produce more effective therapeutics worldwide. In line with growth, they are searching for an experienced Protein Production Scientist.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Design and generate protein expression constructs for target and candidate proteins.
  • Optimise expression of new protein modalities in bacterial and eukaryotic expression systems.
  • Design and implement purification strategies to produce high quality proteins.
  • Develop and perform characterisation assays (e.g. stability, purity, activity) to QC and rank candidate protein sequences.
  • Work closely with our automation and screening teams to develop reliable, reproducible, high-throughput workflows.

What experience you’ll need to apply?

  • You’re confident with purification using a variety of FPLC systems (e.g. ÄKTA Pure) and developing custom purification methods.
  • You’ll have worked on projects that involved troubleshooting or optimising cloning, expression and purification workflows, e.g. to improve yields or purity.
  • You’ve worked with a range of protein targets that may include membrane proteins, mAbs, Fabs, or multi-valent biologics.
  • You’re able to explain scientific concepts to non-scientists, such as automation engineers.
  • Familiarity with upstream / downstream process development and protein production for in vivo work will be advantageous.

What you’ll get in return for your experience
