The Keltie life sciences and chemistry team is looking for a dynamic and talented individual to join our thriving practice. Keltie is privileged to represent some of the most exciting firms in the biotech and chemistry sectors, in fields that span pharmaceuticals, precision medicine, digital health, cellular biology, immunotherapies, bioinformatics, medical devices and AI drug design. At Keltie we pride ourselves on the care we take of both our clients and colleagues. Our success has been built on a simple insight: that our clients are best served by talented people who love what they do and where they work. We are seeking a new member to join our team as a trainee. Experience in the patent profession is welcome, but not essential. We are looking for someone with energy and positivity, eager to support our existing clients and to assist our efforts for continued growth. In return, you will benefit from the support of a team, and firm as a whole, that wants you to succeed. The work at Keltie is exciting, challenging and varied with direct client-facing contact, meeting founders and CEOs to discuss their inventions, drafting applications, prosecution and management of global patent portfolios, due diligence and opposition work.Cambridge
An ideal candidate will have a good first degree in chemistry or medicinal chemistry, with a post-graduate qualification, preferably a PhD, specializing in organic chemistry. Relevant industrial experience in pharmaceuticals or crop protection would be advantageous.
The successful candidate will be a confident communicator, happy to engage with colleagues and our clients, with the energy and enthusiasm to thrive in this challenging and rewarding role.
A competitive salary and benefits will be offered.
The role will be based primarily in our Cambridge office; although it will be expected that some time may be spent in the London office.
