Are you an enthusiastic Research Scientist with a background in biochemistry, industrial biotechnology or process development looking for a new challenge? A fantastic opportunity has become available for a Research Scientist to join an innovative and dynamic life sciences organisation based in the Cambridge area.
As the Research Scientist you will undertake work across our ingredient manufacturing activities, as well as contribute to developing the company's intellectual property portfolio.
KEY DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Your duties as the Research Scientist - Process Development will be varied however the key duties and responsibilities are as follows:
1.You will develop, implement and review biochemical and physical processing techniques to further increase efficiencies and yields of our processes as well as transfer learning from scientific investigations and apply problem solving skills to support internal and external scale up of processes developed in the lab.
2.As the Research Scientist you will create and maintain inventories and records of all ingredients, chemicals and equipment used in the process development laboratories. You will also engage with colleagues across the business, particularly across the Pilot Plant, Technical Project Manager and Analytical Chemistry teams to ensure projects are aligned and delivered efficiently.
3.Another responsibility, supported by senior staff, will be to plan and execute R&D projects, applying your scientific expertise to advance our biobased ingredient production processes.
