Closed positions:

Research Officer (UK – Remote working)

Full time, with flexible hours, mainly in the afternoon/evening.

Role overview: 

This is an exciting opportunity to assist our research clients in pharma, biotech, medical devices and academia, mainly in the US, to navigate planning a human specimen project and order the correct specimens for their needs.

This role is fully remote and requires some evening work in order to account for time zones. 

Mostly, our work is carried out via email, although some clients prefer to discuss their needs over the phone or via Zoom. This may be followed up with more in-depth technical discussions with the relevant source from our network, once initial feasibility has been established.

Our clients often need guidance as to what types of specimen, format, source and size are 

available and how they might best fit with their research. There’s often a gap in understanding what is technically possible for clinical vs. deceased donor specimens, and part of our role is to manage expectations whilst striving to help the researcher to derive the most benefit from their planned study.

We are a small but growing company and work mainly with researchers from innovative SMEs, as well as leading big pharma companies and a wide range of academics.

We cover most diagnoses, as well as providing control specimens, so a broad interest in human biology and disease areas is beneficial.

Essential attributes and skills for this role:

Patient, diligent, enthusiastic, able to pay attention to detail, able to communicate clearly and simply, self-motivated and willing to learn, with a genuine desire to help researchers achieve their in vitro research goals.

We are looking for someone who is committed to promoting in vitro human specimen use throughout all R&D, education and training environments.

Educated to BSc/MSc/PhD level in a relevant area, depending on the level of seniority.

At least one year’s work experience. Must be available to start soon.

Day to day activities may include:

The position involves working closely with the Chief Operating Officer, Sean Davies, and reporting mainly to the Chief Executive Officer, Dr Margaret Clotworthy, as well as the COO.

Salary and other employment terms to be negotiated based on suitability and the successful candidate’s priorities, in the region of £35-£40,000 per annum

UK-based candidates only.
