AI generated summary

  • You must have a degree in Engineering or related field, mechanical design experience, proficiency in 3D CAD tools, programming skills, excellent communication, problem-solving mindset, data management skills, and a passion for cutting-edge science and teamwork.
  • You will assist in developing tools for protein and cellular biochemistry, evolve design solutions, prototype, test, and validate system components, collaborate on software development, and identify new technologies for enhancing system performance.

Off-cycle Internship

Science, Software EngineeringCambridge


  • The internship will be focussed on development of breakthrough instrumentation for automated analysis of biological condensates, by way of designing and integrating mechanical, fluidic, and optical systems into our proprietary discovery platform. The internship is expected to last 6 months, with a view to start in May/June 2024; it represents an excellent opportunity for students who recently graduated with a university degree (or higher), or who are currently already working in the field and wish to gain further work experience in a rapidly developing biotechnology start-up.


  • A bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Physics or related fields. Students entering their final year of undergraduate studies would also be considered.
  • Experience of mechanical design and a keen interest in product or instrumentation development.
  • Enthusiasm for hands-on interaction with physical hardware.
  • Problem-solving mindset with an interest in conducting experimental work.
  • Experience using 3D CAD tools, ideally Solidworks
  • Programming skills in Python, MATLAB, or C++ would be advantageous.
  • Ability to organise, analyse, and deliver information in a concise, accurate, and professional manner; strong written and oral communication skills; excellent data management skills.
  • An interest in cutting-edge science and a high degree of integrity and team orientation; a can-do motivating attitude.
