Professional Internship Placements (PIP) – Bioscience

Sygnature Discovery is an award-winning provider of fully-integrated drug discovery expertise to the global pharmaceutical industry. We actively engage in all stages of the drug discovery process, from hit identification, hit-to-lead and lead optimisation, as well as participating in complete and multi-disciplinary drug discovery programmes.

Working across various therapeutic areas in small molecule and biologics-based drug discovery, our bioscientists play an essential role in supporting integrated client projects as well as delivering specialist biophysical and cell imaging assays.

The Bioscience PIP (professional internship for PhD students) placement at Sygnature provides BBSRC-funded DTP PhD students the opportunity to broaden their research experience through exposure to a well-defined 3-month project in a pharmaceutical drug discovery setting. The project could involve techniques ranging from biophysics and enzymology to cell imaging, and include all elements from planning, independent lab work and analysis to presentation of results, within a growing and highly respected team.

Applicants should be pursuing a PhD in Biology or a related discipline. We mainly operate from our purpose-built facilities in BioCity, Nottingham, but also at Alderley Park, Cheshire. The Bioscience PIP placements are undertaken in Nottingham.
