The successful candidate will have responsibility for devising new processes and refining existing processes to optimise protein manufacturing. You will develop and optimise scale-up procedures for fermentation for the production of recombinant proteins from E.coli cultures.
Your day-to-day activities will include planning and implementing feasibility studies, planning process trials, sourcing materials and equipment, reviewing and interpreting analytical test results and data, and writing and implementing new manufacturing procedures. Managing communication with the R&D department, based on another site, alongside continual dialogue with the wider Protein department and manufacturing site will also be part of your daily role.
We are looking for someone with a PhD in Biochemistry, Microbiology or a related subject or extensive experience in the production of recombinant protein from E.coli culture. Experience working with bioreactors, a familiarity with development of In-Vitro Diagnostic products and a knowledge of good manufacturing process is highly desirable.
