Molecular Biologist | Genomic Product Development | South East UK | to £35K (£37K OTE)

Are you a molecular biologist with industry experience?
Do you have cancer genetics, cytogenetics and microarray experience?
Would you enjoy being involved in an exciting new collaboration for the development of a routine cancer testing tool?
An established genomics company is looking for a molecular biologist to develop an innovative tool for personalised medicine. This will be commercialised for response to therapy testing of solid tumours.
This is a rare opportunity to be involved in a collaboration between university hospitals and commercial biotech and diagnostic companies. This will not just be a lab role as you will travel fairly frequently in the first 6-9 months; initially you will spend two to three months training in the USA, then you will be working with a diverse set of collaborators from academia and industry to set up their labs and train them. Within your lab, you will be working in a small team with bioinformaticians and a project manager.
The successful candidate must be able to work independently, have strong attention to detail with methodical approach to work. You should be self-motivated, but also have excellent communication skills. You should have a PhD in molecular biology or relevant lab experience in development, having worked with a scaled up assay or array screening. Ideally you should have industrial experience and understand the important factors involved in product commercialisation.
You will be rewarded with a competitive salary, pension, private healthcare and annual company bonus.
For more information about this exciting opportunity, please call Caroline Searby on 01279 657716 or email
