Associate Director – Bioscience

Bioscientists at Sygnature Discovery play an essential role in supporting integrated client projects as well as delivering specialist biophysical and cell imaging assays. We are recognised as a centre of excellence for in vitro bioscience and compound screening. As part of our continued growth, we are now seeking to recruit a high-calibre individual to support the strategic leadership of our Bioscience Department.

Qualified to PhD or equivalent, you will have significant senior commercial experience of a wide range of in vitro biology techniques supporting the delivery of biochemical and cellular assay work-streams in an integrated small molecule drug discovery environment. Ideal candidates will have a core expertise in enzymology and/or a neuroscience therapeutic focus.

A strategic understanding of best-in-class external drug discovery practice is also vital.  Alongside this, you will have excellent section-leadership abilities and commercial awareness with a proven track record in successful performance management and employee development.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • High-level interaction with our clients and other stakeholders
  • Section development and project resource allocation
  • Quote generation, report finalisation and the presentation of findings
  • Project design and strategic oversight

In return you will receive an excellent training and benefits package, such as a highly competitive salary, relocation support and pension scheme. All our benefits are tailored to enhancing your experience at Sygnature as it is important to us that you share our success. We also recognise that our environment is paramount, so we foster a collaborative and supportive culture with plenty of opportunities to grow and develop, tailored to individual and business needs. Within the Bioscience Department, there are potential development opportunities for leading therapeutic area knowledge, scientific technical platforms and multi-discipline drug discovery projects.

We are an award-winning provider of fully integrated drug discovery research programmes to the global pharmaceutical industry. Our clients place great value on our flexible, transparent and collaborative business model. Our continuing growth has been supported by our move to the Discovery building in spring 2017.  This is a purpose-built facility on the BioCity site in the heart of Nottingham, and as part of our success and continued expansion, we are looking for innovative and enthusiastic scientists to join the organisation.
