At AstraZeneca we work together across global boundaries to make an impact and find answers to challenges. We do this with the upmost integrity even in the most difficult situations because we are committed to doing the right thing. We continuously forge partnerships that help pursue world-class medicines in new ways, combining our people's exceptional skills with those of people from all over the globe.
As a Senior Research Scientist, in Cellular Assay Development or Mechanistic Biology & Profiling in Cambridge, UK, you'll play a pivotal role in channelling our scientific capabilities to make a positive impact on changing patients' lives. IMED (Innovative Medicines and Early Development) focuses on scientific advances in small molecules, oligonucleotides and other emerging technologies and drug discovery platforms across our focus areas.
The Cellular Assay Development group, within the Discovery Biology department of Discovery Sciences within IMED, is responsible for the generation of novel cellular assays to support projects in all phases of the drug discovery pipeline. Mechanistic Biology & Profiling (also part of Discovery Sciences), is a global, multidisciplinary department responsible for mechanism-of-action studies and compound profiling for efficacy and pre-clinical safety in support of the Oncology, Cardiovascular and Renal Disease, Respiratory, Inflammation & Autoimmunity, and Neuroscience portfolios.
We have 2 exciting opportunities for you to join Discovery Sciences as a lab-based scientist and be a key member of the team, developing state of the art cellular based screening assays and detailed mechanism-of-action studies in support of Oncology and Neuroscience drug discovery projects.
Specifically, the successful candidate will work in the area of ubiquitin biology, applying their skills to identify and characterise PROTAC lead molecules and their effect on underlying disease biology.
