Associate Scientist – Cell and Gene Therapies

An excellent opportunity has come up to join a world leading research-based pharmaceutical company that combines both individual talent and technical resources to create a platform for the delivery for strong growth in a rapidly changing healthcare market. Initially on a 12-month contract, this position is based in the Cell & Gene Therapy team, which is being expanded to support an increasing portfolio of cell and gene therapies. The team is responsible for delivering the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) aspects of the projects from early phase to launch and the development of innovative technologies to enable step-change improvements to cell & gene therapy manufacture.

A highly motivated and independent individual is sought to work within the cell process development team. Your duties will include, but are not limited to:

  • Work collaboratively with Cell & Gene Therapy team cell process research and analytical development scientists to establish the cell process for cell and gene therapies through both well designed experiments performed in-house and through managing experiments to be performed by Contract Manufacturing Organisations (CMOs)
  • Execute laboratory studies to develop the cell process for autologous cell/ex vivo gene therapies
  • Conduct studies to develop and validate innovative technologies and approaches to make step-change improvements in process efficiency
  • Support development of a portfolio of ex vivo gene therapies from early to late stage by executing development work and generating data.
  • Responsible for compliant, clear and concise documentation and/or presentation of all experimental studies and results
  • Maintaining good working relationships with third parties (contractors, suppliers, academic and industry groups) to ensure successful process development and/or technology transfer

Ideally candidates will be educated to degree level (or equivalent) in biology, cell biology, immunology or related scientific discipline. The successful candidate will also have significant experience in tissue culture techniques, and analytical techniques such as flow cytometry. Experience working in cell and gene therapy, process development and/or GMP is desirable, as is the ability to work in multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural teams.
