Viral Vaccine Development Scientist

Pandemic Sciences Institute, Institute of Developmental & Regenerative Medicine, Old Road Campus, Roosevelt Drive, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7TY.

We have an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated Viral Vaccine Development Scientist to join our research programme led by Professor Sarah Gilbert in the Pandemic Sciences Institute at the Nuffield Department of Medicine. The project will assess novel approaches to the design of viral vectored vaccines, including feasibility testing.

As the Viral Vaccine Development Scientist, you will report to and work alongside a senior post-doctoral scientist with experience in this area of research and an innovative approach to viral vector design will be essential in this project. You will be tasked with providing guidance to less experienced members of the research group including research assistants, technicians, and PhD and project students. You will be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. You will also be acting as a source of information and advice to other members of the group on scientific protocols and experimental techniques.

To be successful in this role, you will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil (or close to completion), together with relevant experience. You will have extensive molecular biology experience including plasmid design, cloning, PCR, RT-PCR, RT-qPCR, FACS and western blot along with aseptic cell culture and virology experience, especially in Adenovirus biology. You will also have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.

This position is offered full time on a fixed term contract for 3 years and is funded by the EPSRC.
