Molecular Biology Technician
The current COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted that we are ill equipped to monitor and track the evolution of emergent pathogens, and we fail to be proactive in the management of outbreaks. Kromek is 24 months into a 5-year contract with the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the development of a mobile pathogen detection system, to detect biological threats, such as SARS-CoV-2. Kromek is looking for a full-time permanent molecular biology laboratory assistant to join the growing Biotechnology group.
The laboratory assistant will be immediately responsible for the day to day running of the lab and maintenance of instruments. Working with the rest of the team, they will implement the protocols that are developed in-house, record the procedures followed and record all findings. They should be able to communicate and report to a diverse group of scientists and lay people.

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
