Location UK


Applications Specialist, cyro-EM

Product Sector: Electron Microscopy 

Location: Home office or Head office based but with frequent global travel

Salary: Competitive

Our client is a well-established name within the field of electron microscopy. Based at their Head Office in the South East of England (or from a home office) they are looking for an enthusiastic Applications Specialist to support internal product development, external customers with technical support & training as well as attending exhibitions and trade shows to help promote the business.

As a product expert, the successful candidate will take on the role of a Product Expert for the organisation; being the go-to person for internal staff and external customers on any questions they have over the capabilities of their instrumentation. Many of the company’s clients are working at the forefront of technologies and require advice and support on being able to analyse new and novel materials or use their systems for applications that have never been tried before. The focus for this role will be on biologics, or life science applications and applicants must have hands-on experience with cyro-EM processes; with a particular focus on sample preparation. This role would suit an innovative researcher who thrives on troubleshooting issues and problems and has a deep sense of commitment to resolving challenges but is looking for a new challenge away from pure research and in a customer focused role.

The role of an Applications specialist will involve:

- Being the first point of contact for customers to resolve and technical issues with their instrumentation

- Advise customers on methodologies for novel applications

- Provide customer training

- Train internal sales/support/service team

- Support New Product Development Engineers with suggesting product improvements and carrying out robust testing of prototypes (this will include routine testing and analysis of samples)

- Attending global conferences and exhibitions on behalf of the company and present white papers and posters focused around new and novel methodologies

This role will require international travel so the successful candidate should expect to be away from home on a regular basis, often for multiple nights a week. A full UK driving license would be highly desirable.

The successful candidate will be a highly experience electron microscopist. They will preferably have a PhD or equivalent years of EM experience and will have strong technical skills in cyro-EM sample prep and EM analysis. They must be an excellent communicator (oral and written) and will enjoy customer contact, networking at events and giving presentation and talks at events.
