Furthermore you will be actively involved in the development of new expression systems and cell culture media and process development up to the 10l scale.

As educational background you hold a degree of an advanced technical college or as a Research Technician with several years of experience in either Biology or Chemistry – the later would be in conjunction with a supplementary education in biology. You should also be familiar with ELISA, western blotting and other molecular biology techniques.
