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 pivotal regulatory development enabling seed investment, grant funding, or progression with industry or clinical partners. The focus is broad and aligned with the goals of the Crick; application of biomedical science to improve human health.
The postholder will be responsible for independently delivering high quality scientific insight and program support in relation to building translational science projects with patient impact.
The role is centred around catalysing early stage innovations, bridging the gap between fundamental research and the practical application of the science to accelerate the translational impact of the Crick.
Key role relationships
This role will require building strong working relationships with Group Leaders, Heads of Science and Technology Platforms (STPs), and the wider Crick scientific community to help shape concepts and develop milestone driven translational science projects.
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.
