I am actively working on a Senior Research Scientist – Bioinformatician (maternity cover) position within a small but fast growing pharmaceutical company focussed on developing therapeutics from the human gut microbiome. Live biotherapeutic products (LBPs) derived from the gut microbiome represent a new class of drugs that contain live organisms for the prevention, treatment or cure of disease. This is a great opportunity to join a world leader in the LBP field who currently have two clinical stage programmes and a strong pipeline of preclinical programmes in autoimmunity, inflammation, oncology and CNS disease.
