  • A Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Biophysics or a related subject
  • Proven expertise in Enzyme Kinetics with knowledge of single-substrate and multiple-substrate mechanisms, and binding affinity.
  • Expertise in molecular biology techniques such as PCR, qPCR, RT-PCR and DNA/RNA extraction.
  • Strong quantitative skills, with a good understanding of statistics and familiarity with experimental design methods such as Taguchi.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills, with the ability to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team
  • An understanding of the chemical principals involved in buffers, stabilisers, enhancers or fluorescent chemistry as applied to commercial polymerases would be an advantage.

Key Words “Protein Biochemistry, Enzyme Kinetics, Binding Affinity, Biophysics, Molecular Biology, PCR, qPCR, RT-PCR, R&D, Research and Development, DNA Extraction, RNA, Polymerase, Taq Polymerase”

In return my client offers an exciting research and development environment, with a company that has seen considerable growth over the last few years.
