We are looking for a highly motivated and qualified Associate Scientist to help in the screening, characterization and understanding of the binding properties of lead drug candidates for various therapeutic applications. You will be involved in the development, optimization and execution of protein-based immuno-assays that help us to identify the target selectivity, specificity, binding kinetics and epitope diversity of newly discovered antibodies. These activities will support the Discovery campaigns in different therapeutic areas (e.g. immuno-oncology, immunology, inflammation, etc.).

  • You will help in developing and running immune-assays using a plethora of different label-free interaction techniques including (SPR and BLI) and in-solution affinity measurement methods.
  • You will use state-of-the-art equipment (e.g. ProteOn XPR36, SPR-32, Carterra LSA, Biacore 8K+, Gyrolab and MSD) to study and help understand the binding characteristics and epitope diversity of Nanobody lead drug candidates.
  • You will be involved in data analysis and prepare written reports of your results.
  • You will communicate results and observations to the team.
  • You will actively contribute to project-oriented teams.
  • You will take up equipment, lab, and/or reagent stock management responsibilities.
  • Degree of Bachelor/Master in Biotechnology/Biomedical Sciences or equivalent.
  • Experience in one or more of the above-mentioned responsibilities is an asset.
