Associate Principle/Principle Scientist Cell Biologist

Established in 2001, Domainex is a privately-owned, rapidly growing drug discovery services company with expertise spanning disease target expression, hit discovery, hit-to-lead identification and lead optimisation.

We have established an excellent reputation for providing high-quality and innovative drug discovery services and have an established track record of delivering preclinical drug candidates for our partners. Our clients include leading universities, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in the UK and overseas.

As a fast-growing technology company, Domainex offers a stimulating environment in which to work. Scientists are encouraged to be innovators, work collaboratively and above all to deliver high quality data and results to our customers.
