Research to Development Transition Group (R2D)- Scientist/Senior Scientists
Oxford

Immunocore are setting up a new group (R2D Transition) which will work at the interface between Research and Development. This group will transition product candidates from their pre-clinical phase into development in preparation for clinical testing. This group will sit at the interface between both stages and as such scientists within this group will be exposed to and benefit from seeing the bigger picture and the impact of programs.

As a scientist within the Transition group you will be responsible for optimising candidate expression and purification processes to enable scaling up of production in preparation for product development. You will be skilled in molecular biology and biochemistry with particular experience in cloning, protein expression and purification. The goal will be to achieve high yield preps which exhibit good stability to enable product scale up. The Transition group will also support the development team as the product transfers to GMP manufacture.

Applicants should have a MSc or PhD in a relevant discipline; an immunology background and/ or experience in protein engineering, protein purification or bioprocess development would be an advantage.

We are advertising for multiple roles within this team ranging from Scientists to Senior Scientists. For further information about this position please contact the H.R. Department.

 If you would like to work in a friendly, dynamic environment developing novel therapeutic research programmes please send your application (copy of C.V. and short covering letter) to Mrs. C. Canuto, Immunocore Limited, 101 Park Drive, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14 4RY, or click on the 'Apply' button.

Salaries are competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience; benefits include pension scheme and private health insurance.

Closing date 31st October 2016. Interviews for this role will be held on Nov 10/11th, 2016
