DescriptionOur client is seeking to hire a Scientist/Senior Scientist. The Scientist will be responsible for:The genetic engineering of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells for the production of vaccine candidates in bioreactor cultures; and More specifically the generation of recombinant microalgal strains starting from vector design to recombinant protein expression and secretion (approaches are analogous to CHO cell line generation and recombinant yeast, algae and fungus strain generation).Required Qualifications:PhD (Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology or Biochemical Engineering) with demonstrated experience in genetic engineering of algae/fungus/yeast/CHO and preferably some work experience in biologics development. In-depth knowledge of advanced molecular biology techniques and genetic engineering of eukaryotic cells/ bacteria/ viruses, gene and recombinant protein design, gene cloning, selection and analysis of desired recombinants, culture of eukaryotic cells / bacteria/ viruses, detection of protein expression using appropriate analytical methods, protein purification, and protein stabilization. In-depth knowledge of experimental design, execution and data analysis. Working knowledge of chemical engineering principles and bioreactor, purification and formulation process development. Strong documentation, computer, scientific writing and presentations skills. Supervisory/management/people development experience. Highly organized and excellent communication, interpersonal and team leadership skills.
