As part of this growth, associate scientists are required to join the team to help support the following duties:
Whilst initially requiring supervision by a more senior scientist, the job holder will develop further scientific skills to enable them to work more independently on routine experiments.
The Associate Scientist may also be involved in one or more support activities to enable the smooth running of the group or laboratory (e.g. Lab steward role).
Performance in this role (including functional and project objectives and behaviours) is expected to be monitored through group performance and stakeholder feedback from peers, senior management and project team members (as outlined in the development framework for this position).
Hepititus B vaccination is preferred but not essential. Vaccination costs will be covered by Adaptimmune.
This role reports to Senior Scientists within the Process Development team who have overall responsibility for scientific output. The jobholder will work to carry out experiments and will be responsible for maintaining good practice and detailed records of work undertaken. Experienced applicants will be expected to undertake experimental decision making and trouble-shooting in order to produce good quality scientific data. The jobholder may hold a position of authority in lab maintenance (e.g. lab steward)
