Twist DX: Process Development Scientist – protein purification and manufacture

Job Reference: SPAKTA02102017
Closing date: 2017-11-02

We are looking for someone to join our protein process development team at our Cambridge Science Park site.

The role will involve downstream and purification process design and development alongside the transfer of these methods into manufacturing. The role will also involve identifying and implementing process improvements supporting the vital and ongoing development of our protein manufacturing process. The ideal candidate will be equally happy working in the laboratory and pursuing desk-based activities.

We are looking for someone with a strong background in AKTA protein purification and programming, preferably using the AKTA Pilot.  Experience in design of experiment software and TFF and associated downstream techniques is highly desirable.

The broader protein manufacturing team comprises 13 people and you will be working closely with the Lead PD Scientist and the Manufacturing Manager. Whilst working within the team, your role has a certain amount of autonomy and you should feel confident in speaking with the wider management team about the work you are conducting.

It would be of huge benefit if you have industrial manufacturing experience and a PhD in a related subject, although a PhD isn’t essential if your experience is relevant.

If you would like to apply, please send your CV with a letter of application to email quoting reference SPAKTA02102017.
