Job Description
The Role

DNA Electronics (DNAe) is a dynamic company integrating cutting edge sequencing technologies with novel biochemical techniques to create a revolutionary sample-to-answer sequencing platform. We are seeking a strong individual to contribute to the DNAe team. The right candidate will be self-starting, detail-oriented, and able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Person Specification

We are looking for people with a passion for their work - people who strive for exceptional results, but who can deliver pragmatic solutions on time. DNA Electronics' scientists and engineers enjoy and thrive on working in an interdisciplinary team but can also work independently and use their own initiative.

  • Experience working in a BSL-2 environment with pathogenic bacterial and fungal organisms
