If you are a highly accomplished analytical scientist with GMP or GLP laboratory experience working on the development of HPLC methods then here is your chance of a permanent Analytical Chemist position contributing to commercially sensitive projects for new drug discovery technology within a multi-national firm's South Eastern England site. The Analytical Chemist role sits in support of efforts conducted by the neighbouring substance/product team so some knowledge of organic or formulation chemistry is ideal.

Your day to day duties as an Analytical Chemist will be:

  • Execution and optimisation of client-prepared SOPs
  • Development of HPLC methods to procure analytical data from raw materials, finished products and stability studies relevant to the project sponsor's needs
  • Delivery of high quality results to demanding timelines
  • Supporting the whole site's quality systems and equipment

You will be an ideal candidate with this background:

  • A degree, or PhD, in a relevant chemistry field
  • Some track record in HPLC method development in the laboratory
  • A good eye for detail

This client is already interviewing for the role so I would like you to apply immediately with a CV (Word document format, 2 pages maximum) so as to not miss out on the opportunity.

Note my client is unable to sponsor visas for those without eligibility to work in the UK.

When choosing your scientific recruitment specialist, why should it be Dr Paul Mears, Head of Chemical recruitment, at Science Solutions?

The team I manage here focus solely on matching scientists to positions in the UK speciality chemical industry, and related areas such as drug discovery and agrochemicals, which is where my own experience and network position me best for clients and job seekers alike. Supplemented by a background working in the speciality chemicals and fragrance and flavours sectors, I completed academic studies with a PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester, which came after graduating with a BSc at the University of Leeds' famous Colour & Polymer Chemistry department. Following a short post-doctoral research post I built up seven years' experience in recruiting scientists into new jobs.
