Off-cycle Internship



  • The internship will be focussed on identification and validation of small molecule hits using Transition Bio’s proprietary drug 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 biology, biochemistry, chemical biology, chemistry, or related fields. Students entering their final year of undergraduate studies would also be considered.
  • Experience working in a molecular and cell biology laboratory in an academic or industry setting, where molecular assay execution and development is performed to a high standard.
  • 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.
  • Experience with standard molecular biology techniques (protein/DNA handling, UV/Fluorescence readings, gel electrophoresis, ELISA, PCR etc).
