CRT is an equal opportunities employer. No agencies.

Senior Scientist Open

Salary: Circa £35,000 + excellent benefits

Location: Cambridge or London 

Contract: Permanent

Contracted Hours (per week): Full Time (35 hours)

Closing Date: 02/07/2017 23:55

Cancer Research Technology (CRT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cancer Research UK, is a vibrant drug discovery and commercialisation company, which aims to advance new discoveries to beat cancer. To help achieve this goal CRT has its own drug discovery laboratories, CRT Discovery Laboratory (CRT-DL), based at locations in central London and Cambridge.

CRT-DL is dedicated to helping cancer patients through establishing and prosecuting theme-based alliances with industry. We collaborate with the academic community and our commercial partners to discover and develop novel cancer therapies. Our pioneering model has already resulted in cancer drug discovery alliances with major international partners including AstraZeneca, Forma Therapeutics and Teva Pharmaceuticals.

Two laboratory-based senior scientist positions have become available within CRT-DL’s Discovery Bioscience team. In these roles, you will be required to take responsibility for progressing key areas of biology within drug discovery project teams as well as drawing on your skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to overcoming conceptual and technical challenges. In particular, you will be expected to apply a broad knowledge of genetic manipulation and/or gene editing techniques to target validation and disease positioning studies. Additionally, the successful candidates would be required to perform a wide range of phenotypic assays (e.g. proliferation, apoptosis, 3D growth, clonogenic assays) as well as small molecule characterisation and mechanism of action studies. Supporting cell-based assay development studies will be another key activity within this role. Finally, research experience in one or more of the following fields of cancer biology research, although not essential, would be an advantage: Immuno-oncology, protein homeostasis, tumour cell polarity or DNA damage response mechanisms.

The successful applicants will form an integral part of the CRT-DL team working alongside our industry partners to progress novel cancer targets towards patient benefit. These roles would suit a scientist with a PhD (or equivalent) and at least three additional years of relevant experience in oncology research, ideally gained in a biotechnology or pharmaceutical company.

These roles require a strong team player with excellent communication skills who is able to interact with multi-disciplinary project and research leadership teams both internally and externally with our industry and academic collaborators. Strong organisation skills are required to deliver on specific project goals and deadlines.

The positions will be based either at our Cambridgeshire Site on the Babraham Research Campus or the London Bioscience Innovation centre (LBIC). Candidates are requested to clearly state their location preference.
