Biological Scientist

Job description

Synthace is engaged in building a platform to transform the way biology is done. We’re moving biology from manual processes with pipettes and excel spreadsheets to reproducible automated experimentation, traced samples, structured datasets and cutting edge data analysis and AI.  This is a highly collaborative effort between software developers and engineers, lab-based biologists and engineers, mathematicians, bioinformaticians, designers and our growing list of partners in the bioscience industry.



We are looking to expand our world-class team of biological engineers.  While you need to be a lab-based biologist your specific domain is less relevant than your intelligence, adaptability, communication skills, teamworking and work ethic.

We have multiple roles available and are open to a range of experience levels, but at least PhD level or equivalent experience is preferred.
