Welcome to our deep dive into cell biology and fermentation jobs. We work with top bio professionals across many niche disciplines within the sector, whether they are as clients, as candidates looking to start their careers or well established biologists looking for their next challenge or contract. Here we deep dive into Cell Biology and Fermentation. Find out how we work, discover key trends and take a look at the roles we have in this fascinating area.
What is Cell Biology and Fermentation?
Cell biology is the study of cell structure and function which revolves around the concept that the cell is the fundamental unit of life. By understanding how cells work in healthy and diseased states, cell biologists working in animal, plant and medical science will be able to develop new vaccines, more effective medicines, plants with improved qualities and through increased knowledge a better understanding of how all living things live. Biotechnology uses techniques and information from cell biology to genetically modify crops to produce alternative characteristics; to clone plants and animals; to produce and ensure high quality food is available at lower costs; to produce purer medicines and in time organs for the many people who need transplants. Cell biology is about all this and can make an exciting career.
What are the key trends in Cell Biology?
Because there are so many strains of molecular biology, it is difficult to pin point one key trending area in cell biology, so here are a few areas that are reporting progress and findings in 2019. Personalised medicine. Individual genetic and phenotypic characteristics of many diseases are being looked at to tailor to each patient a more effective and safer therapy. Cancer research has been at the forefront of these personalised therapeutics. Through the use of genotypic data mixed with other strategies we are better able to understand the cause and treatment of human diseases.
We know that RNA molecule research has lead us to understand genetic diversity. New methods now allow analysis at the single-cell and single-molecule level and have provided us with a greater ability to understand the significance of further regulatory functions with greater precision than before.
The use of AI in Cell Biology: The use of artificial intelligence and big data is helping cell biologists to fully understand how the parts of a cell interact with each other. Fluorescent microscopy is a great tool however has its drawbacks. There are limits to the number of fluorescent tags that can be introduced into a cell, and side effects such as phototoxicity can hinder researchers’ ability to conduct live cell imaging. This new use of AI is helping to create 3D live videos of a cell and how the various components work together.
Where we work
We have a very strong foundation in cell biology recruitment. We work with the best and therefore have a wide range of cell biology jobs. Here are a few examples of roles we have recruited for recently: Upstream Scientist, Downstream Scientist, Fermentation Scientist, Research Scientist/Senior Research Scientist/Senior Scientist/Principal Scientist, Cell Culture Scientist, Head of Microbial Fermentation, Head of Mammalian Cell Culture, Team Leader Microbial Fermentation, Team leader Mammalian Cell Culture, Molecular Biologist, Protein Scientist, Protein Purification Scientist.
The way we work:
We work in a consultative way with both our clients and candidates. When you are looking for a new permanent job or new contract role within the cell biology sector, SRG, as market leaders, are the best placed recruitment consultancy to help you find the right place for your next move. As a team, we are specialised, so our team fully understands the roles that they each deal with. We really get to know the people we work with, whether that is our clients (their culture, their environment, their team) or candidates (motivations, career aspirations, the environment you want to work in). We never try to send people to companies that won’t suit them and when working with our client companies we don’t bombard you with cv’s to fill our own internal quota numbers.
Take a look at our roles to see where your next opportunity could be. Our consultants are talking to clients all the time and they can make approaches on your behalf so please get in touch to see how we can help you. Alternatively if you are looking for talent to enhance or grow your team, call us to talk about who we are currently working with and how we can help: 0161 868 2200
