Job title: Principal Scientist – Protein Engineering

Company: Randstad

Job description: My client has an exciting opportunity for a Principal Scientist to head up a small team developing the next generation protein therapeutics at their R&D facility in Cambridge, UK.

As a Principal Scientist, you’ll be involved in the design, production and testing of complex therapeutic proteins including multi-specifics and fusion proteins using state-of-the-art methodologies.

As a small dynamic biotech company that works from concept to clinic, my client offers a great opportunity for you to make a real difference by progressing innovative proteins rapidly through the pipeline.

As Principal Scientist, you will:

  • Bring extensive protein engineering experience to the design of the next generation of protein therapeutics.
  • Act as lead scientist and project leader on both pipeline and platform projects.
  • Initiate and execute innovative research leading to the discovery of solutions to complex protein engineering challenges.
  • Support projects across the company with novel modalities (including bispecific, multispecific and fusion proteins) to deliver efficacious and develop-able drugs.
  • Collaborate both within the company and externally to ensure we’re at the cutting edge of protein engineering for biologic drug discovery.
  • Management of a small team of experienced scientists responsible for their development and the delivery of work through the team.

To be considered for the role of Principal Scientist, you will have:

  • Significant – 8 years plus – experience in protein engineering for drug discovery, demonstrated by delivery of therapeutic proteins to the clinic or high-impact publications.
  • Experience of working with novel modalities (e.g. bispecifics, multi specifics, fusion proteins, immune cell engagers or ADCs) is a prerequisite to be successful in this role.
  • You will be an acknowledged expert in advanced protein therapeutic discovery platforms such as in silico discovery, mammalian display or machine-learning data-driven approaches.
  • Prior line management experience is highly desirable for this role.
