The University of Glasgow’s College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences (MVLS) has embedded, and is continuing to develop, impact through identifying, championing and facilitating the translation of highly original novel ideas and concepts across basic research that underpins pre-clinical and clinically-facing investigation into areas that encompass pharmaceuticals, interventions and medical devices.

Operating within the MVLS Innovation Team, the Translational Research Initiative (TRI) was formed to deliver this vision. Integrated within MVLS broader innovation strategy and aligned with substantial University funding to support dedicated staff, infrastructure and project costs, TRI provides a nexus for translational activities, coordinating access to funding and providing project management support and training for staff through an integrated hub.

We have an opportunity for a Translational Research Scientist to support the development and implementation of activities funded through Wellcome Trust and The Medical Research Council, to help identify and manage translational projects supported by the TRI and contribute to the delivery of the College’s vision for innovation. You will be central to the development of a diverse portfolio of research projects, working alongside key lead investigators within the University to generate critical proof of concept data to help de-risk and drive the progression of these projects along the translational pathway. The role will offer you the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to lead future translational projects both within and out-with academia.

Applicants should have a PhD or Higher Degree in relevant discipline along with knowledge of translational research and/or business development environment.
