INFEX Therapeutics Vacancies

Based at Alderley Park, Infex Therapeutics supports and accelerates the development of new antibiotics and diagnostics and provide a fully integrated development capability, offering translational R&D from pre-clinical hits through to clinical proof of concept.

Infex Therapeutics currently have two vacancies:


Associate Microbiologist / Microbiologist*



Infex Therapeutics is looking to appoint a scientist at the ‘Associate’ or ‘Microbiologist’ grade (depending on experience) to support their expanding portfolio of antibiotic-development programs. The position will be based in Alderley Park working with the Biology team and conducting research to progress our current programs targeting bacterial and viral pathogens. The ideal candidate will have an understanding of bacterial antibiotic resistance and be motivated to get involved in developing new antibacterial agents to overcome this global problem, and/or an understanding of viral infectious disease. As part of the team you will assess the biological profile of newly developed compounds, both in terms of in vitro potency and toxicity to mammalian cells, using whole-cell and biochemical techniques. You will be involved in routine laboratory maintenance such as compound management, media preparation and organisation of departmental databases. As such, the role is mostly lab-based and provides an excellent opportunity to get involved in the development of novel antimicrobials to treat critical infections.
