• Accurately recording experiments and writing scientific reports

The following experience would be highly beneficial:

• PhD or equivalent in protein analytics, biochemistry, biophysics or a related discipline
• Knowledge and understanding of one or more biophysical techniques for characterisation of proteins such as SPR, BLI, SEC-HPLC, HIC-       HPLC, DSF
