For Confo Therapeutics, an innovative and one of the promising biotech companies, we are looking for a Scientist Antibody Discovery. This company, created in 2015, has developed into a stable biotechnology company and they are quickly expanding their activities. Their mission is to discover and develop new therapies and dugs for severe and neglected diseases.

This means you will design, execute and troubleshoot parallel antibody discovery projects from start to finish. You will use your wide array of skills in library construction, antibody cloning, display techniques etc. to reach these goals. Furthermore you will contribute in the design and establishment of innovative new screening strategies, convert it to SOP’s and train your fellow scientists in these new techniques. In all of this you will be supported by Research Associates that you will be managing. Depending on your success, this can quickly grow to a small team on itself.
