Microbiologist (Ref: 132215)

Microbiologist, PhD Molecular Microbiology, with 6 years' post-doc experience working within the Biotechnology industry.  Primary focus, Virology.

Since completing his PhD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) the candidate has worked for a UK Biotechnology company.  His research is focussed on the study of the pathogenicity of viruses at the molecular level.  Consequently he is competent in conducting all appropriate DNA and RNA-based assays and technologies, including Reverse-transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), RNA interference (RNAi) and DNA sequencing.  His key interest rests within vitro Diagnostics and he is keen to work in a Research and Development role within a Diagnostic company with a portfolio focus in microbiology.  The candidate closely follows competitor new product development in this area and has established a small network of commercial executives working within this segment.  Because of the limited number of in vitro Diagnostic companies of any real dimensions within the UK that develop and manufacture products in the UK for the global market, he realises he may have to relocate to Europe or the USA to realise his goal.

Biomedical Scientist (Ref: 132218)

Biomedical Scientist, State Registered, FIBMS with speciality in Haematology and Blood Transfusion. 5 years' experience, post Fellowship, in routine Haematology laboratory of a major Regional Hospital Laboratory.

Candidate has 9 years' experience working within routine clinical diagnostic laboratories in the UK with most time spent in Haematology and Blood Transfusion.  He has a full working knowledge of and regularly uses all routine haematology instruments and systems including Automated Full Blood Count analysers, Coagulation analysers and automated slide staining.  Accomplished screening of peripheral blood and bone marrow films in the evaluation of cell morphology, leucocyte differentiation disease diagnosis.  Proficient in blood compatibility testing for transfusion and the detection and identification of blood group specific antibodies and antigens.  Currently responsible for effective stock control of all blood products, ensuring optimum levels of all blood types with minimum stock discards.

Prepared to participate in any on-call duties, including those residential within the laboratory. Currently looking for a senior position with management responsibilities within a haematology laboratory and is prepared to relocate within the UK.

Molecular Biologist (Ref: 132221)

Molecular Biologist, PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology with 3 years' Post Doc experience in Academia and a further 3 years' within the Pharmaceutical industry.  Primary focus Genetics and Genomics.

Since completion of his PhD (Cell Signalling) and a further 3 years' within academia, the candidate has provided genetic and structural biology services in the evaluation of new drug targets within the drug discovery unit of the UK arm of a global pharmaceutical company.  Currently leads a small team of post-doc scientists.  Key strengths are considered to be as an accomplished analytical scientist with skills in using systems and technologies such as: Automated Genetic Analysers; DNA Sequencing; SPR and UHPLC-MS and the performance of functional assays, including Quantitative PCR.  Responsibilities require that he has a strong interactive relationship with other units focused on the drug discovery pipeline. He has developed an active network of potential external collaborators across both academia and commercial sectors.  The candidate is willing to relocate within the UK and to specific countries in Europe.
