An exciting opportunity has arisen in Complix NV for a Research Scientist to join a research team based in Bioville, Diepenbeek (Hasselt). Headquartered in Belgium, Complix is an established biotech company committed to the development of therapies for major diseases with high unmet medical need, including cancer, neurology, viral diseases and autoimmunity. Our proprietary technology is based on Alphabodies, a novel protein scaffold. The structure of Alphabodies confers them with significant advantages over current protein therapeutic approaches and allows for the generation of biopharmaceuticals to address targets currently unamenable to more conventional approaches. The major focus of the company is the development of Alphabody therapeutics that can address both extracellular and intracellular disease targets, thanks to their ability to effectively penetrate tissues and cells, to interfere with protein-protein interactions important in disease processes.
We are looking for a PhD scientist to join an established team tasked with the screening, characterization and understanding of the function of Alphabody drug candidates for various therapeutic applications. Specifically, the candidate will be responsible for the development and application of molecular biology and cell assays and implementation of discovery strategies to identify promising lead compounds. We offer a fulltime permanent contract, competitive salary package and benefits (pension, meal vouchers and health insurance). The role would suit an enthusiastic and energetic PhD cell biologist with experience in (immuno)oncology, immunology or neuroscience looking forward to make the leap to an exciting company in the biotech industry.
