Base4 is developing a microdroplet based sequencing method that generates long reads from a single molecule of DNA, without the need for initial amplification. This technology will enable the generation of cheaper, more accurate and much more meaningful sequencing data, including direct readout of methylation states.
Our location in Cambridge gives us access to an excellent, relevant skills base and our already sizeable and multidisciplinary team is one of our very valuable assets.
Over the past few years the team has grown to more than 30 scientists and engineers with combined expertise in physics, nanofabrication, optical detection, molecular biology, microfluidics, chemistry, computer science and electrochemistry.
Cambridge is a centre for scientific excellence and innovation, particularly in the life sciences. The structure of DNA was discovered here and the city was the birth place of DNA sequencing. Our location gives us unparalleled access to the best of the University, the Sanger Wellcome Trust and a wide range of world class technology companies.
An environment for problem solving
Open plan, glass-walled offices,
plenty of natural daylight.
If you need a nap or space to think - beanbags, eye-masks, peace and quiet, things to read.
Regular training sessions open to
everyone at lunch times.
Good communication is one of our top priorities. We have kept our company structure very flat - you will be heard.
In-house lectures, talks, training courses and mentoring; interaction with world class scientists and professionals.
We like puzzles. They’re scattered all
around the office.
Working at Base4 requires intellectual agility, dedication and hard work but it also competitively rewards bright, original thinking. If you think you’re right for us, we’d love to hear from you.
