We are currently looking for an Experimental Officer in Biopotency with proven experience working within a GMP environment, to join a leading contract research organisation in Yorkshire
Part of the rapidly expanding Biotechnology Division, the Cell Based Bioassay group focuses on the support of the drug development process for large molecule biopharmaceuticals including vaccines, cytokines, growth factors, gene therapy vectors, clotting factors and antibodies.
The project types include assessments of the biological activity (potency) of large molecules for batch release testing, product characterisation, candidate selection and stability assessment. In addition, immunogenicity studies are also performed to detect the presence of neutralising anti-drug antibodies during toxicology and clinical trials. Due to the varied nature of the projects, the Cell Based Bioassay group works in compliance with GMP, GLP and GCP guidelines.
Experimental Officers are laboratory based analysts who are responsible for performing a wide variety of assays within a regulatory compliant laboratory. Due to the varied nature of the scientific work involved, candidates must be able to demonstrate a flexible approach to laboratory work, possess excellent communication and time management skills and be able to maintain a high standard of record keeping.
Suitable candidates will have proven industry experience working within the field of cell biology / cell based bioassay (management of analytical teams or project management) in a regulatory environment (GLP/GCP/GMP). In addition, experience of client management and technical expertise in a relevant scientific (biochemistry / molecular biology) arena is required.
Key techniques include:
Cellular, biochemical and ligand / receptor binding assays; fluorescence, luminescence, absorbance, ELISA, flow cytometry, electrochemiluminescence, time-resolved fluorescence and cell culture, general biochemistry and molecular biology
To apply for this position, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK
