Purpose of the Job

The Division Head of Discovery II will lead a well-established senior scientific team. They will be responsible for planning and directing research projects investigating microbe characteristics and host responses of live biotherapeutic candidates progressing to the clinic. In particular, they will lead the research team to define mechanism of action of selected LBPs in novel disease areas using appropriate preclinical models and readouts. The successful applicant should ideally have solid knowledge of the gut microbiome and host-microbe interactions. The Division Head will be responsible for planning and directing the research projects within the planned resources and staff. They should have the ability to blend an understanding of preclinical science and translational research and be experienced in providing leadership to a group of scientists.

Experience / Qualifications Required

  • PhD in immunology, microbiology or other relevant discipline
  • Experience in an appropriate sector of the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry
  • Experience of designing translational research programmes enabling progression into clinical trials
  • Background in human gut microbiome research and/or characterizing microbe-host interactions
  • Experience with managing an experienced research team

Key Areas of Responsibility

  • Provides scientific leadership to develop an integrated research strategy for investigation of mechanism of action of live biotherapeutic candidate
  • Identifies appropriate preclinical models and assay readouts to define mode of action and demonstrate proof of concept of selected LBPs in disease models
  • Proposes innovative and effective preclinical research processes in line with company strategy
  • Delivers research objectives within set company targets and timelines
  • Delivers research outcomes in the form of scientific reports and presentations
  • Recruits, trains, and motivates team members in order to develop a capable research team

Purpose of the Job

Applications are invited for the role of Senior Immunologist (Team Leader) to join the research team at 4D Pharma Research Ltd in Aberdeen (UK). The successful candidate will provide scientific expertise and leadership to the proprietary MicroRx platform, investigating microbe characteristics and host responses of LPBs progressing to the clinic. This is mainly focussed on defining mechanism of action of selected LBPs in novel disease areas using appropriate preclinical models and readouts. The role will require proven expertise in a range of immunological techniques, especially in investigating immune-mediated mechanisms in preclinical models of disease, and the proven ability to translate these skills into robust and reliable data. The post-holder will have the opportunity to engage in the wider research activities of the 4D Pharma Research team, write up results in the form of reports and publications, present research outcomes at meetings, and generate intellectual property.

Experience / Qualifications Required

  • A PhD with relevant post-doctoral or industry experience (>3-4 years) in immunology or a related discipline
  • Solid experience in a range of in vitro and in vivo immunology techniques and proven expertise in immunological assay development
  • Experience with investigating immune-mediated mechanisms in translational disease models
  • Ideally a Home Office personal/project licence holder (or equivalent)
  • Thorough understanding of the gut microbiome and host-microbe interactions
  • Highly motivated and innovative with the ability to work independently and integrate into a multidisciplinary team of microbiologists and molecular biologists

Purpose of the Job

Applications are invited for the role of Senior Microbiologist (Team Leader) to join the research team at 4D Pharma Research Ltd in Aberdeen (UK). The successful candidate will provide scientific expertise and leadership to the proprietary MicroRx platform, for the early discovery of new LBPs in novel therapeutic areas. The successful candidate will investigate the mechanisms through which bacterial candidates confer disease protection on the host. This involves mining of the 4D bacterial culture collection for identification of microbial molecules and pathways important for host interaction. An extensive knowledge of host-microbe communication, ideally in the field of gut microbiome research, is therefore crucial to this position. A background in metabolomics/proteomics is highly desirable along with proven expertise in microbial genetics. The post-holder will have the opportunity to engage in the wider research activities of the 4D Pharma Research team, write up results in the form of reports and publications, present research outcomes at meetings, and generate intellectual property.

Experience / Qualifications Required

  • A PhD with relevant post-doctoral or industry experience (>3-4 years) in microbiology or a related discipline
