An exciting opportunity is available to join a growing and dynamic biophysical analysis team. Your team role will be to plan, organize, perform, and analyse data collected from biophysical interaction experiments using state-of-the-art instrumentation including SPR, BLI, MST, DSF and DLS technologies. In this role, you will independently design and perform experiments related to biological drug discovery projects (antibodies and aptamers), and to guide a small team of 1-2 junior direct reports.

Typical work involved in this position includes the following:

  • Experimental planning, execution, data analysis and interpretation of results;
  • Assay development using SPR, BLI, MST, DSF, DLS and other technologies;
  • Writing detailed reports of experimental findings in the English language;
  • Mentoring and supervising junior team members in routine lab operations;
  • Maintaining an ELN;

Essential Skills:

  • Broad knowledge and hands-on experience in generating, analyzing and interpreting biophysical data, at least using SPR and/or BLI technologies, to measure biomolecular interaction kinetics. Experience using ITC, and fluorescence-based technologies including MST, DSF, and others is a plus;
  • Experience working with and characterizing complicated recombinant proteins;
  • Experience characterizing at least some of the following interactions: protein-protein, antibody-antigen, protein-nucleic acid, protein-small molecule;
  • Independent experience in designing, executing, analysing, and interpreting complex datasets to address relevant biological research questions;
  • Experience troubleshooting assays to identify solutions;
  • Experience mentoring and supervising junior scientists;
  • Fluent English, especially spoken, and with solid writing skills;

Bonus Skills (although not essential, the following additional skills would be of great benefit):

  • Experience performing high-throughput screening assays;
  • Experience performing epitope-binning assays;
  • Experience characterizing both protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions;
  • Experience developing interaction assays for which no publications exist;
  • Broad understanding of protein science including purification techniques, modification techniques and analysis of structure;
  • Past work experience in a structural biology environment;
  • Past work experience in an international research environment.

Soft Skills:

  • Strong communication and team management skills;
  • Passion for protein science, learning new skills, and a strong will to innovate;
  • Enjoyment of writing and communicating science;
  • A positive “can-do” mindset.
