Join the Biotangents team

Biotangents (Edinburgh), founded in 2015 and awarded “Best Start-Up of 2020” by IHS Markit Animal Health, are developing diagnostics for infectious diseases of livestock and released their first product, for bovine viral diarrhoea, in 2021.


To support our recent commercial success and ongoing product development pipeline, we are seeking a Bioinformatician to join our team.



Reporting to the Head of Assay Development, your role will be to develop, improve and implement bioinformatic approaches to design nucleic acid probes, with maximum sensitivity and specificity, for infectious disease diagnostic tests. This will include using statistical modelling to interpret data produced by the wet lab team, optimising the assay and probe design, and applying and further developing in-house tools and pipelines for assay optimisation. Within the role, there will be extensive opportunity to develop and expand upon your own skill set and abilities.
