Our client is a biopharmaceutical company focussed on the discovery and development of antibody therapeutics. Due to ongoing success and growth they now have an opportunity for an Assay Scientist to join their Antibody Discovery team.
In this role you will be responsible for developing cell-based high throughput screening (HTS) assays for antibody discovery. This will include the design and construction of modified cell lines (tackling appropriate biological mechanisms) for screening human antibodies from their antibody discovery platform. Good communication and presentation skills are necessary for this role as is the ability to liaise extensively with both in-house and external experts.
It is envisaged that the successful candidate will be BSc, MSc or PhD educated or equivalent in a life science subject coupled with an excellent track record in assay development and validation. You will have extensive hands-on experience with a broad range of cell-based assays, cell lines, biological processes and screening technology along with an understanding of therapeutic antibody generation and the development of monoclonal antibodies as therapeutic drugs. It is essential that you have excellent communication skills and are a good team player. Experience of assay automation in HTS within a pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry or previous experience in antibody-based drug development would be advantageous.
