Cell and gene therapy is poised to make unprecedented contributions to the treatment of disease and improvement of human health. This is predicated on our ability to employ very efficient strategies to add or to remove genes and to regulate their expression in response to both internal environmental cues and to externally supplied drugs. Cell and Gene Therapy – King’s (CGT-K) has made significant contributions to the rapid translation of such laboratory based discoveries to therapeutic products. We are proud to have helped with the design and development of a broad range of cell and gene based investigational medicinal products for nearly 20 years, thus facilitating the demonstration clinical proof of concept through several dozen clinical trials.
In a significant expansion of our R&D programme and our manufacturing activities for early phase clinical studies, we are seeking suitable candidates with relevant expertise for the development and GMP manufacture of viral vectors, with a specific focus on AAV. We are also seeking candidates with experience in the use of bio-reactors for the growth of cells in suspension and for the production of viral vectors. Applicants with suitable training and expertise are invited to apply for a number of positions that are available for suitably qualified candidates. These positions will be offered at an appropriate level of seniority, on either fixed-term or open ended contracts. If you have experience in the development and manufacture of AAV and/or working with bioreactors, we would love to hear from you and to offer you participation in an exciting programme of research and development at the very cutting edge of cell and gene therapy.
The selection process will include a panel interview, an assessment, a presentation.
