Stem Cell Production Officer – Fixed Term

Nr. Potters Bar, Hertfordshire/Camden, North London

c. £34.6K to £44.3K per annum inclusive of London Allowance

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team working on the production and supply of stem cells for veterinary clinics. The Royal Veterinary College pioneered the use of mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of tendon injuries in the horse in 2001 which is now widely used by equine veterinary clinics. To expand its unrivalled experience in the stem cell field, a laboratory licenced by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate has been established at the RVC for the purpose of preparing clinical grade mesenchymal stem cells for veterinary clinical use. The primary targets are equine and canine diseases. We are now seeking a highly-motivated individual to manage the cell culture process for clinic use.

You will have a PhD in a relevant area of biological sciences with laboratory skills and experience of cell culture. Experience in the stem cell area would be an advantage. The post requires strong qualities in working independently and responsibility for overseeing the management and administration of clinical grade stem cells. The post-holder will be expected to liaise closely with the equine and small animal hospitals at the Royal Veterinary College and also with veterinary practices in the U.K. in developing efficient communications and marketing strategies to meet the needs of clinicians.

This is a 12 month fixed term post in the first instance. However, this is a long-term scheme and the post may be extended if specific commercial targets are achieved in the first year.
