Job description    2021-02-23

For 70 years, Charles River employees have worked together to assist in the discovery, development and safe manufacture of new drug therapies. When you join our family, you will have a significant impact on the health and well-being of people across the globe. Whether your background is in life sciences, finance, IT, sales or another area, your skills will play an important role in the work we perform. In return, we’ll help you build a career that you can feel passionate about.
Job Summary At present we are looking for an Assistant Scientist to join the In Vitro Investigative Toxicology team located at Elvingston, East Lothian.
The fields that we typically work in include in vitro inhalation toxicology and drug membrane permeability. The testing that we perform is frequently bespoke and one-off, researched and devised in collaboration with our clients on a case-by-case basis to solve their particular scientific questions. Our skills lie in being able to combine a broad range of toxicological, physiological and other endpoints with numerous in vitro tissue and cell culture models to make a custom test design when existing and established models do not meet our client’s needs.
The successful applicant will participate in literature review, design, performing and reporting a wide range of in vitro studies. Duties will also include data checking, reagent preparation and cell culture. The team works collaboratively with many other groups both internally and outside Charles River, so excellent communication and networking skills are required.
You should possess an Honours degree or equivalent in a life science subject. Experience of in vitro toxicology techniques (e.g. working with 3D cell models and cell culture) and working in a GLP environment would be an advantage although not essential since training will be provided.
Salary for this position is £21,365. In exceptional circumstances where the candidate has relevant equivalent experience, this will be taken into consideration.
All internal applicants should apply through the careers page in Talent Hub.
The closing date for this vacancy is Monday, 08 March 2021.
