Carina Clingman

Recruiting Partner

After completing my Ph.D. in biochemistry I saw an urgent need for recruiters with a strong scientific background. Although I loved lab research, my real passions were discussing science with my colleagues and solving problems. Recruiting allows me to do both, which is why I formed a niche scientific recruiting firm that specialized in identifying and thoroughly vetting scientific candidates through scholarly conversations and literature review. Over the years, my firm grew to include PhD-level vetting experts in various specialized scientific areas. I joined forces with Eric to form Sci.Bio Recruiting to provide these robust scientific sourcing and vetting services to a wider array of clients. My personal areas of expertise include biochemistry, molecular biology, computational biology, and pharmacology. I work with wonderful consulting scientists in many other areas, including oncology, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, molecular dynamics, neurobiology, and biomedical engineering. I leverage my vast scientific network to continually identify great candidates for client companies, as well as new consultants for our scientific vetting model.

Recruiting Partner

I began my career in cancer research before moving to the Diagnostics industry. During my time in industry, I built a strong base of knowledge in manufacturing and GMP product quality. I enjoyed interacting and collaborating with a wide variety of people. Being social by nature, this made me contemplate other career avenues that could combine my love for science, and my penchant for meeting new people. This is what led me to my next venture as a life science recruiter. I find it very rewarding to help people find great opportunities with amazing companies. I am excited to be working as part of the team at Sci.bio, as I share their passion for all things science, and recruiting!

Chris Nunes

Director of Finance and Operations

I’m a seasoned finance and operations professional who has been searching for a role with an organization that is poised to dominate the market.  At Sci.bio I’ve finally found my home, working with a highly dedicated and extremely talented group of individuals all driven by the same goal: to provide cost effective and best in class service to its customers, while pushing each other to grow together as a team.  I reject the notion that things need to be done a certain way just because that’s the way the industry has always been doing it. At Sci.bio, our ability to provide solutions that meet the needs of any customer is what wakes me up every morning ready to conquer the day.

Katja Helenius

Recruiting Partner

I am a well-rounded scientist with over 15 years of research experience in academia. I have a PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry, with my expertise being in the RNA field, cancer biology and cell signaling pathways. After completing my post-doctoral studies at Harvard and MIT, I desired a change from the academic environment. As a recruiter, I am able to use my vast scientific knowledge to provide our clients with the most apt candidates as well as enable suitable scientists find the perfect fit for their future career.

Conor Sullivan

Conor Sullivan

Sr. Scientific Recruiting Partner

I am a scientific recruiter with experience in organic chemistry research and technical instrumentation sales. While my research in grad school taught me a great deal about organic and protein chemistry it more importantly made me realize that research probably wasn’t my life calling. I needed something more socially interactive and thus I began to segue into recruiting and sales. Interacting with, presenting to, and recruiting scientists has been enjoyable and fulfilling. Sci.bio is the perfect opportunity for me to return to scientific recruiting and is something I’m proud to be a part of. In my current role I’m doing what I enjoy most: building relationships and helping scientists find opportunities that fulfill career goals.

I obtained an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro before moving to Boston to explore career possibilities in the biopharmaceutical sector.  Although I enjoyed my time working in various academic and industry labs, I knew my calling was to work directly with people and recruiting in science was a natural fit.  At Sci.Bio I am surrounded by talented colleagues with strong scientific backgrounds who inspire me to exceed daily expectations. I appreciate being part of a successful and intelligent team that works to build close relationships with clients and candidates in order to support various growing companies in this field. I look forward to continue building upon my scientific and industry knowledge, and continue to progress within our team.

I’ve joined Sci.bio with a graduate degree in Bioinformatics, concentrating in Biochemistry and Biostatistics, and with experience in academia, tech and pharmaceutical industries.

Senior Recruiting Associate

I am a graduate from the University of New Hampshire, Class of 2016. During my time at UNH, I achieved my Bachelors Degree in Biology. Since my academic career, I have specialized in the staffing and recruitment industry helping to source elite level talent to premier companies and organizations across the US and the Globe. While I have helped source talent to a variety of markets across various sectors, I have also aided Medical Device startups, large health systems, therapeutics, pharmaceuticals, and everything in between. Given my background in Biology, I can help identify pain points that bio-focused clients experience acquiring talent in a more friendly and organic way that few recruiters in the industry can provide. I work a true 24/7/365 schedule so no matter what the need may be, please feel free to connect with me to figure out how I can help.
