Hours: Full-time Laboratory and Office based
Salary: £17,000 - £22,000 per annum, dependent on experience plus benefits
OXGENE redefines possible in mammalian cell engineering. Our technology platforms and expert solutions accelerate the discovery, development and manufacture of cell and gene therapies.
We address some of the most important and challenging questions in modern biology within gene therapy, antibody-based therapeutics and CRISPR / gene editing.
Our technologies enable precise and robust mammalian cell engineering. Our automation and informatics driven approaches mean we solve the problems that no-one else can to advance the delivery of new therapeutics.
You will carry out a range of activities to support the Process Development group at OXGENE. The group incorporates Upstream (shake flask and bioreactor systems), Downstream (harvest/purification) and Analytical (titration and quality control) for both viral and protein therapeutics, with a particular focus on Lentivirus, adenovirus and adeno-associated virus (AAV).
The Technician will primarily focus on routine production and testing for a novel viral platform with occasional exposure to other areas of process development through commercial and R&D projects. The role would also provide support for lab maintenance (cleaning and stock management), quality management (recording results and updating forms and SOPs), communication (data recording and information). Depending on candidates background the role may be tailored more towards upstream or analytical operations.
This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the successful expansion of the novel platform developed at OXGENE, and significant training and support in multiple areas of biological production and characterisation will be provided.
