Protein Engineer

APPLY FOR THIS JOB

Summary

Responsibility:

Developing LiliumX’s modular bispecific antibody platform

Requirement:

Experience with protein engineering

Salary:

Competitive London band

Starting date:

ASAP

Location:

Westbourne Studios, London

ABOUT US

LiliumX are a recent University of Oxford spinout that drives innovation in bispecific antibody R&D against cancer. We believe that current bispecific antibody R&D is outdated and focused only on limited known biology. We break free of this limitation by using our highly modular and high-throughput protein platform to discover novel target combinations to make first-in-class bispecific antibodies with entirely new mechanisms of action.
We are backed by mission-driven investors including Y Combinator, Hoxton Ventures, Magnet Ventures, and Acequia Capital. We are disrupting the field of bispecific antibodies and we’re looking for like-minded people to join our efforts to create an impact; we are looking for you.

THE ROLE

During your time with us, you will be involved in:
  • Designing and selecting suitable protein mutations through in silico methods for increased stability and/or function
  • Producing proteins following DNA cloning from bacterial or mammalian cells
  • Designing and analysing in vivo animal studies
  • Analysing protein characteristics through biochemical and biophysical methodologies
  • Suggesting and implementing novel ideas related to LiliumX’s protein engineering procedure and
    facility expansion
  • Supervising technical staff and junior researchers / placement students
  • Working collaboratively with the protein production and cell biology team
  • Interfacing with scaling of LiliumX’s protein engineering process
  • Supporting grant applications, article publications and patent filing

WHO YOU ARE

We are looking for candidates with:
  • A PhD (or related) degree in a cell biology-related discipline
  • Experience in working with molecular biology techniques, including DNA cloning and protein purification
  • Experience in computational protein engineering using
    applications such as Rosetta modelling or similar
  • Motivation to challenge and learn new skills and knowledge
Not required but helpful attributes include:
  • Knowledge in open-source software, bioinformatics tools
    and programming languages such as Python
  • Experience in using an automated liquid handler, such as Opentrons
  • Experience in modern cloning approaches and FPLC protein purification
  • Prior experience in protein directed evolution
  • Prior working experience in industry

WHAT WE OFFER

  • Competitive salary
  • Share scheme
  • Pension
  • Flexible hours
  • Chance to make a direct impact
    to the bispecific antibody field
