Proteins are the key drivers of any organism. Our mission at HexagonFab is to unlock the secret of proteins and their interactions. We want to create the tools that enable anyone to understand how a protein behaves, what its properties are and how it interacts with other molecules. Our tools help researchers to develop the medicine of the future, to find the best ways to produce novel biomolecules and to assure that medicine is always safe and efficacious.
We are a dynamic, interdisciplinary team working at the intersection of biology, nanotechnology and data science. We value a flat hierarchy, where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and to follow their passion. We believe it is important to move fast, to make mistakes and then to try again. This approach has led us to the invention of our biosensor platform that is the core of our product - the HexagonFab Bolt. Join us to bring biology to the next level.
You will be part of our Biosensor R&D team, responsible for the development and optimization of HexagonFab’s sensor platform at the interface of electronics and biology. As the Senior Biosensor Scientist, your responsibility will be to design and build the next generation of the sensor platform and to experimentally validate its performance. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team of surface chemists and hardware engineers. As part of the larger R&D team, you will analyse and present your data and participate in the product development. The position is based in Cambridge, UK.
