Director of Protein Science at Peak Proteins

Peak Proteins Ltd, Alderley Park , United Kingdom
Application deadline: 07 Jul 2021

We have an exciting opportunity for a Director level protein scientist with in-depth experience in the production of recombinant proteins from a range of expression systems and extensive hands-on knowledge of their purification, characterisation, analysis and use. Peak Proteins is a vibrant and growing contract research organisation 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 drug discovery. In addition, we perform protein structure determination by X-ray crystallography and have a proven track record 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.

To be considered, you must have a proven track record in both the production and characterisation of recombinant proteins with demonstrated expertise in purification and analysis, in addition to excellent problem-solving skills. You must be able to understand complex data to successfully troubleshoot problems relating to poor expression, difficulties in purification or issues with protein solubility and stability. Ideally, you will have a PhD in Biochemistry or a related discipline, followed by a minimum of 10 years post-doctoral experience; industry-based research experience is an advantage but is not essential.
