Oxford BioMedica is a pioneer of gene and cell therapy and our work is helping to deliver life changing treatments.
Gene and cell therapy is the treatment of disease by the delivery of therapeutic DNA into a patient’s cells, providing long term and potentially curative treatments for a wide range of diseases. With the potential to transform medicine, the sector holds significant promise with the first commercial products now launched and others rapidly approaching the market.
Our recent successes are driving significant growth. As such, we are looking for a Scientist Grade 3 with qPCR experience to join our Translational Sciences Group. The purpose of this role is to perform analytics to provide safety (vector biodistribution, persistence and shedding) and efficacy (transgene expression) data for OXB and client products in accordance with appropriate GLP/GCP(Labs) compliance.
