Proteins are the key drivers of any organism. Our mission at HexagonFab is to unlock the secrets of proteins and their interactions. We want to create the tools that enable anyone to understand how a protein behaves, what its properties are and how it interacts with other molecules. Our tools help researchers to develop the medicine of the future, to find the best ways to produce novel biomolecules and to assure that medicine is always safe and efficacious.
We are a dynamic, interdisciplinary team working at the intersection of biology, nanotechnology and data science. We value a flat hierarchy, where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and to follow their passion. We believe it is important to move fast, to make mistakes and then to try again. This approach has led us to the invention of our biosensor platform powered by a nanomaterial-based transistor that is the core of our technology. Join us to bring biology to the next level.
You will be part of our R&D team, working on the development and optimization of our product within our multidisciplinary team. As an electromechanical engineer, you will design, build, and maintain the instrumentation that powers our nanotechnology-based biomolecule analysis platform. This includes general electronics development(i.e., PCB design, electronics prototyping), light software development (i.e.,writing/maintaining firmware and software to collect data and control an automation rig) and the development of robotic systems for sample handling (i.e.mechanical assemblies, validation). We are looking for a candidate with relevant experience and the enthusiasm to explore new applications that require independent learning. The position is based in Cambridge, UK.
1st of April 2021 or by arrangement
Cambridge, UK, with national and international travel, remote work possible
First stage via video or phone call, followed by a face-to-face interview with members of the team
