Senior Scientist - Bioanalysis and Biomarker research

Cambridge

6-month initial assignment

Up to £25p/hDo you want a role that will allow you to initiate, direct and perform research experiments, implementing strategies to biomarker discovery?Are you a leader in scientific influence with technical proficiency, scientific creativity, teamwork and independent thought?

Here at SRG we have an exciting new role for a Scientist based at my client's site in Cambridge.

You will play a pivotal role in the development of methods, their design, how they perform and solve problems and summarise data from biomarker and / or bioanalytical support to invitro and / or invivo toxicology. You will be able to influence invitro and invivo scientists to ensure that appropriate samples are taken to define the biomarker and / or candidate drug. You will use your scientific judgement, ability to analyse data, lab experience and communication skills to provide life changing data.

Main Responsibilities:

  • To develop methods, design, perform, identify and solve problems and summarize data from biomarker and / or bioanalytical support to invitro and / or invivo toxicology and PK/PD studies to achieve Project Team objectives
  • To lead interactions with projects on interpretation of bioanalysis and biomarker data
  • Identify new approaches and technologies that would improve our ability to support projects
  • To be a co-author on manuscripts
  • To ensure all work meets GLS (General Laboratory Standard)
  • Responsible for and ensure that the results of own experiments are recorded accurately and reported to a high standard
  • To build an awareness of current scientific development relevant to a particular area of pathology biomarker and / or bioanalytical science
  • To deliver high quality scientific results to agreed completion dates for several concurrent studies and schedule their own work in agreement with the Study Supervisor so that project deadlines are achieved
  • Influence invitro and invivo scientists to ensure that appropriate samples are taken to define the biomarker and or candidate drug
  • Perform problem solving studies by identification of issues and where necessary designing experiments to overcome problems
  • Identify new approaches and technologies that would improve our ability to support projects

Minimum Requirements:BS or MS in related field of science (biomarker and /or bioanalysis) and at least 3 years work experience. Prior research experience in the pharmaceutical or biotech industry or academic research laboratory preferred. The individual should have experience and knowledge in several of the following areas and be an expert in at least one of the analytical technologies associated with biomarker and bioanalysis delivery:

  • Quantitative biomarker assay development, application and data interpretation
  • Quantitative bioanalysis assay development, application and data interpretation
  • Biofluid and tissue sample analysis
  • Analytical techniques e.g. ligand binding/immunoassays, PCR, flow cytometry
  • An understanding of automation, liquid handling, instrument management and data handling
  • Has a good, practical, understanding of biomarker and or bioanalysis study design and data analysis
