VACANCY: Senior Scientist

VACANCY: Senior Scientist –  Product Development


An exciting new position for an experienced laboratory scientist has become available within our R&D department. Working alongside a small, highly skilled team of senior scientists and laboratory personnel, this diverse and interesting role involves inter-departmental collaboration for the transfer and on-going development and maintenance of assays to ensure exceptional quality is maintained throughout the product lifecycle.


Avacta Animal Health, part of the Avacta Group, is an independent UK veterinary laboratory centred on the work-up and management of allergic disease through evidence-based solutions. We pride ourselves on our innovation, supportive working environment and exemplary quality of service.


We are looking for someone with extensive laboratory experience, excellent verbal and written communication skills and a passion for continuous improvement. The successful candidate will also have a self-motivated and confident approach to their work, enjoy problem-solving and provide technical expertise and support to colleagues. Previous experience of ELISA is essential, particularly within the clinical or commercial sectors; experience of automation would be advantageous.


The position is a permanent role and could be either full or part-time. Although primarily based at our Wetherby site, some home-based working would be possible.


We are offering a highly competitive package, including a salary of circa 35k (dependent on experience and pro rata if part-time) to the right candidate. If you are interested in finding out more about this exciting role or for an informal chat, please contact wetherbyjobs@avacta.com.
