Company description

Complix is a Belgian established biotech company committed to the development of therapies for diseases with high unmet medical need, including cancer and autoimmunity.

They allow for the generation of biopharmaceuticals to address targets currently unamenable to more conventional approaches. The major focus of the company is on the development of Alphabodies that can penetrate cells and thereby interfere with protein-protein interactions important in disease processes.

Job description

We are looking to expand our team tasked with the production, purification and characterization of Alphabodies and target proteins used in different assays and biopanning campaigns. The successful candidate will work within an established team and coordinate the development and regular application of assays for QC analysis of produced Alphabodies, the characterization of Alphabodytarget binding and the analysis of folding, stability and other properties of Alphabodies. This role would suit an enthusiastic and energetic PhD with a desire to further progress his/her career in the area of production and characterization of biologics. We offer a fulltime permanent contract, competitive salary package and benefits (pension, meal vouchers and health insurance).
