Quality Control Manager – Glasswash & Media Preparation

The Francis Crick Institute

Short Summary

An exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science.

We are looking for a motivated individual to lead the Glasswash and Media Preparation teams and to review and develop robust operational processes. In addition, you will be expected to set up an effective testing and validation system to ensure the quality of products used in research. The ideal candidate will have experience of leading effective teams and extensive knowledge of analytical techniques, preferably gained in a GxP environment.

Project Scope

Laboratory Infrastructure brings together a range of specialist functions, which provide support to around a thousand research scientists.  Every week the Glasswash and Media Preparation teams clean and sterilise thousands of items of scientific glassware and formulate numerous research reagents, including culture media, buffers, microbiological plates and drosophila diet. The QC Manager will set the strategic direction and oversee the smooth running of these combined support services, developing and implementing best-practice approaches to service delivery.

About Us

The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.

An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.

The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.

The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.

The closing date for applications is 18 January 2018 at 23:30.
