Science Communications - Proteintech Group

My main responsibilities involve predicting research trends, communicating with the scientific community and being aware of the antibody industry and advances in science in general. I am a point of contact between the research community and our technical team at Proteintech. The job also involves composing great articles for the company blog - giving me chance to flex my writing muscles - writing and organising content for the Proteintech monthly newsletter (such as scientist interviews, star antibody articles and feature articles) and producing and editing content for all our marketing publications.
