I am currently working with a leading pharmaceutical company who are pioneering a new class of revolutionary biotherapeutic medicines. Due to continued success and a robust product pipeline they are now recruiting for a number of positions.

This role will primarily perform testing required to support the core research and development program of the Discovery I Micro team.

The Research scientist will be expected to propose new screening strategies and introduce and validate new screening approaches/methods ensuring they are current and compliant with industry standards and regulations.
