Job Information

Role Overview

We are currently looking for a Senior Viral Vector Scientist to join an exciting Cell Therapy company based in London. As the Senior Viral Vector Scientist you will design, execute and document up and downstream process development activities for viral vector projects using Quality by Design principles and industrial bioprocessing techniques. This role will have a particular focus on downstream process operations but could also involve cell factory-based expansion and virus production, stirred tank bioreactor processing, primary recovery using filtration approaches, purification via chromatographic methods and associated analytical techniques.

Key Duties and Responsibilities

Your duties as the Senior Viral Vector Scientist will be varied however the key duties and responsibilities are as follows:

1. You will work with the Lead Scientist to generate experimental design and execution for viral vector processes and analytical development projects.

2. You will need to collaborate with Project Managers and the Technical Transfer team and to enable the development and technical transfer of viral vector production processes.

3. As the Senior Viral Vector Scientist, you will establish and maintain strong interaction with academic and industrial partners to provide engineering solutions for the integration of production methodology and downstream bioprocessing approaches.

4. It will be your responsibility to use your in-depth knowledge of viral vector biology and/or associated bioprocessing skills to enable the delivery of robust and industrially closed GMP ready processes.

Role Requirements

To be successful in your application to this exciting opportunity as the Senior Viral Vector Scientist, we are looking to identify the following on your profile and past history:

1. Relevant degree and ideally a PhD in a Engineering or Life Science discipline along with industrial experience working with up or downstream bioprocessing or viral vectors is essential.

2. Proven industry experience using Design of Experiment (DoE) and Quality by Design (QbD) will be highly advantageous, especially with a link to GMP.

3. A working knowledge and experience with purification techniques, such as chromatography and filtration, is essential to your application.
