The Francis Crick Institute is seeking to appoint a translational scientist who will drive translational science projects. Working in close collaboration with our scientists they will develop projects to the point where they are attractive to seed investment, can successfully attract grant funding, or progress with industry or clinical partners.
This is a senior role within Translation with responsibility for independently delivering high quality scientific insight when supporting researchers in relation to building translational science projects that have the potential for patient impact.
The role will involve catalysing early stage innovations, bridging the gap between fundamental research and the practical application of the science, with a view to accelerating the translational science programme at the Crick.
There will be an important role in extending the Crick’s external collaborative relationships to expedite projects, including with industry, CROs or academic partnerships.
These include but are not limited to:
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.
