Come and be part of a multi-disciplinary team driving groundbreaking innovation and play a meaningful role in contributing towards us achieving our ambitious goals, while being a part of an inspiring, collaborative and entrepreneurial culture.
Your impact
We are seeking an experienced biotech/pharmaceutical professional to join our team as a Business Development Associate / Manager. This individual will partner with the Head of Business Development, leading business development projects from search and evaluation through to negotiation and execution, while contributing commercial and business insights to support the company’s overall corporate strategy.

  • Identify, assess, and execute creative and varied deals with potential partners including pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, foundations, etc.
  • Work closely with the Head of Business Development to develop, implement, and execute operational roadmaps to deliver on the business development strategy.
  • Develop robust commercial business cases for internal pipeline programs, supporting portfolio management and driving interest among potential out-licensing partners.
  • Act as the lead on competitive market intelligence, providing timely, compelling and actionable insights covering the field of AI-driven drug design, and the competitive landscape of our internal pipeline programs.
  • Support our R&D organisation in the development of robust target product profiles for our internal pipeline programs, providing commercial insight to support strategic decision making.
Skills and qualifications Essential:
  • Significant experience in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry in a business development role (exceptional candidates with experience obtained in strategic consulting or investment roles may also be considered).
  • Strong scientific background with Ph.D., M.D., and/or MBA qualification (BSc/Masters may be considered for candidates with substantial business development experience).
  • Demonstrated ability to identify, evaluate, structure, negotiate, and execute deals with biotech and pharma companies. Ability to inject energy into a deal process, providing leadership and driving towards a successful conclusion.
  • Strong understanding of drug discovery/development and the key value drivers and barriers to commercial success. Depth of knowledge covering different therapeutic modalities and the pharmaceutical industry in general.
  • Exceptional analytical skills and ability to distil complex and imperfect information into clear and compelling recommendations.
  • Credibility and ability to influence without line-authority across a multi-disciplinary organisation as a science-driven business professional.
  • Highly motivated and self-starter who thrives in a collaborative environment and can exercise keen judgement while navigating open-ended situations with a good degree of independence.
  • Ambitious, driven, and self-motivated individual who is adaptable and enjoys a fast-paced environment; a proven ability to be adaptive and take a hands-on approach as the changing environment demands.
Nice to have:
  • Current or recent experience in a high-growth biotech or top-tier pharmaceutical company preferred.
  • Deal sheet demonstrating the ability to close impactful and meaningful deals that drive forward the overall corporate goals of an organisation.
  • Prior experience in biomedical research roles would be greatly valued.
  • Experience working in the field of digital biology within an AI-first drug discovery organisation.
Culture and values
What does it take to be successful at IsoLabs? It's not about finding people who think and act in the same way, but we do have some shared values:
Thoughtful at Iso is about curiosity, creativity and care. It is about good people doing good, rigorous and future-making science every single day.
Brave at Iso is about fearlessness, but it’s also about initiative and integrity. The scale of the challenge demands nothing less.
Determined at Iso is the way we pursue our goal. It’s a confidence in our hypothesis, as well as the urgency and agility needed to deliver on it. Because disease won’t wait, so neither should we.
In this together
Together at Iso is about connection, collaboration across fields and catalytic relationships. It’s knowing that transformation is a group project, and remembering that what we’re doing will have a real impact on real people everywhere.
Creating an inclusive company
We realise that to be successful we need our teams to reflect and represent the populations we are striving to serve. We’re working to build a supportive and inclusive environment where collaboration is encouraged and learning is shared. We value diversity of experience, knowledge, backgrounds and perspectives and harness these qualities to create extraordinary impact.
We are committed to equal employment opportunities regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy or related condition (including breastfeeding) or any other basis protected by applicable law. If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Hybrid working
It’s hugely important for us to be able to share knowledge and establish relationships with each other, and we find it easier to do this if we spend time together in person. This is why we’ve decided to follow a hybrid model, and would require you to be able to come into the office 3 days a week (currently Tue, Wed, and one other day depending on which team you’re in). As an equal opportunities employer we are committed to building an equal and inclusive team. If you have additional needs that would prevent you from following this hybrid approach, we’d be happy to talk through these if you’re selected for an initial screening call.
