About FabricNano

FabricNano ( is a venture-backed startup. We aim to revolutionise the synthesis of biomolecules - bioplastics, biofuels, fragrances, flavours, medicines, and more. We use nanotechnology to construct multi-enzyme cascades with increased yield, higher purity, and lower synthesis costs. You would join a passionate team at an exciting early stage to help build our culture and initial products.


You will be part of a collaborative team developing in vitro metabolic systems. In particular, you will focus on the chemical characterisation of enzyme conversions.


  • You will independently analyse data, troubleshoot methods, and report outcomes to the team and in peer-reviewed publications.
  • You will collaborate with biophysicists, chemists, enzymologists and computational scientists in our team and partner organisations.
  • You will take advantage of opportunities to develop novel enzyme assays and streamline chemical characterisation.
  • You will contribute to a passionate, creative and open-minded work environment.



  • Extensive hands-on experience performing mass spectrometry on biological samples, acquired in a PhD, post-doc, or equivalent level in industry.
  • Flexible and focused team player.
  • Desirable:

  • Experience with polymer conjugation (e.g., DNA and protein).
  • Experience with organic synthesis (e.g., metabolites).
  • Experience optimising and scaling chemical reactions.
  • Industry experience.
