• Join a state of the art lab in the heart of thriving Bristol.
• World with friendly and highly talented scientists.

An opportunity at Folium Science for a Research Scientist specializing in Campylobacter has arisen. Folium Science’s mission is to be the first to use CRISPR technology to modulate microbiomes and their metabolic activities across the food and agricultural landscape using its patented Guided Biotics ® technology.

Your mission will be to leverage this technology to selectively combat Campylobacter pathogens in poultry and improve global public health. We are seeking a talented and motivated Campylobacter Scientist to join our dynamic team. Based at Science Creates, Old Market incubator and located in the vibrant city of Bristol, you’ll be at the epicentre of innovation and progress.

What experience you'll need:
• Ph.D. or equivalent experience in microbiology, molecular biology, or a related field.
• Proven expertise in Campylobacter research, with a strong publication record demonstrating contributions to the field.
• Proficiency in molecular biology techniques such as molecular cloning (Gibson & Golden Gate assembly) and genome engineering (recombineering) with reference to Campylobacter would be desirable.
• An understanding of CRISPR would be beneficial but not essential.
• Knowledge of phage-bacteria interaction would be a plus.
• Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to work both independently and collaboratively in a fast-paced research environment.
• Proven experience in working on grants and managing projects, demonstrating effective time and effort management to meet deadlines.
• Strong written and oral communication skills, with the ability to effectively communicate scientific concepts, writing papers and reports.
• Ideally, prior relevant industrial R&D.
• Awareness of the regulatory environment for biotech products and/or an understanding of the food value chain Farm to Fork would be a bonus.
• Commitment to quality, safety, and compliance with regulatory standards in laboratory practices.

What you'll get in return for your talents

Competitive salary.
Excellent work environment in brand new facilities.
Working with top ten universities.
