INDUSTRY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY WITH BIONTECH FOR ONCOLOGY TRAINEES

In July 2023, BioNTech signed a long-term partnership agreement with the UK, with the goal of working together to develop new cancer therapies for the benefit of NHS patients. This includes an accelerated clinical trials program supported by NIHR and NHS England, agreeing to deliver 10,000 cancer vaccines to patients in the UK by 2030. BioNTech have a diverse portfolio of trials in cancer vaccines and next generation immunotherapies, currently being brought to the UK. With this in mind, it is an exciting time to be involved in these latest technologies and trials and this role offers a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of the national cancer vaccine advance.

BioNTech are expanding their UK team and it is an exciting time to be involved in the national cancer vaccine advance. Research interest and experience is important, and whilst previous industry experience is a bonus it is certainly not required. The role as a medical science liaison includes serving as the link between trial investigators and BioNTech, but also supporting global trials teams with activities from clinical development and early protocol discussion, to overseeing regulatory approvals and inputting on general strategy for the UK partnership and initiatives such as the Cancer Vaccine Launchpad.


This role is primarily remote, and ideal as an out of programme experience for medical or clinical oncologists. Duration is flexible, but a minimum of 1 year (2-3 years recommended.)
