Protein Biochemist - Full time permanent position
Competitive salaries dependant on experience
Are you experience in working with proteins and have a solid understanding of protein purification up to crystallisation purity? Do you have a working knowledge of purification of endogenous or recombinant membrane proteins and want to use this ability in a commercial drug discovery biotechnology organisation? My client is looking for suitably qualified protein biochemists to join an exciting start-up company in Oxford.The successful candidate
- You will be PhD educated in biochemistry or a related discipline
- You will have experience in protein expression ideally in mammalian systems with a particular emphasis on membrane proteins or examples of difficult to purify proteins
- You will understand the use of different lysis buffers to purify out different cell fractions including membrane fractions
- You will have a strong knowledge of protein purification for downstream processes such as crystallography or mass spec analysis
- Based in new laboratory facilities in Oxford you will form part of a larger team with the common goal of finding novel drug candidates
- You will liaise with mass spec teams to identify drug candidates and how then interact with protein / receptor targets
- You will use your experience of expressing and purifying both endogenous and recombinant proteins to aid the target discovery process
- You will aid in method development for expression and purification of proteins/receptors and develop SOPs.
