Your role: 


Working within our Cell Biology team, you will join an active, highly motivated and experienced group, within a well-equipped testing and microscopy facility. You will be responsible for providing scientific support in the conduct of routine and complex GLP and GMP studies performed within a contract testing laboratory. Responsibilities of this role include acting as Responsible Scientist or Study Director as appropriate and assisting in the performance of laboratory procedures. As a subject matter expert, you will be responsible for providing scientific support to laboratory colleagues performing routine and complex procedures and on occasion will be required to discuss results and data with external clients for whom the studies are being performed. You will be required to maintain study records, including deviation records, to ensure regulatory standards are consistently met.


Who you are:


  • You will have a BSc/MSc or Ph.D in a Biological Science discipline with considerable experience in a scientific laboratory. Relevant experience in a GLP/ GMP laboratory environment would be an advantage.
  • You will be experienced in the theory and practical skills relating to a range of techniques, including karyotyping, Fluorescence in situ Hybridisation (FISH), Immunocytochemistry and Spectral karyotyping.  As many of the studies involve working with Genetically Modified organisms or stem cells, a strong molecular background and a good working knowledge of genetic engineering techniques is essential.
  • Previous experience of fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy and image analysis would be an advantage. 
  • You must have good communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work as part of a team and as an individual.
