Senior Scientist – Clonal Amplification

Senior Scientist – Clonal Amplification


We are looking for Clonal Amplification Scientists at all levels (Associate to Senior) to join a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Biotechnology company based in London. If you are looking to join a growing company at the forefront of cutting edge genomic diagnostics technology that are on a mission to improve patients care.
The successful candidate will be a member of the NGS Clonal Amplification Team responsible for comprising technology development of clonal DNA amplification performed on an integrated circuit (chip). The on-chip process must be compatible with cartridge-based automation and performance must meet the demanding requirements of the novel DNAe NGS platform. Senior Scientists are also responsible for proactive interaction with other subsystems (including cartridge, instrument, and integrated circuit teams) to ensure effective communication, proper alignment of input/output requirements and successful development and integration of the sequencing protocol and chemistries into the automated platform process workflow.
Clonal Amplification Scientist
