To support our recent commercial success and ongoing product development pipeline we are seeking two research scientists and a laboratory manager to join our team.

Research Scientist (grade II)


Our dynamic working environment will allow you to develop skills in isothermal nucleic acid amplification techniques, RT-qPCR, nucleic acid purification and diagnostic test design and optimisation. Thanks to our multidisciplinary team and the diverse set of challenges you will encounter, you will have the opportunity to gain experience in a range of areas outside of your core role, such as project management, manufacturing, collaboration with external partners, writing grant and patent applications, and others. Guidance, support, and the opportunity to develop your skills will be available throughout this process.
