An exciting opportunity has become available for a Science Writer to join a dynamic and enthusiastic team working on the development and manufacturing of new methods for early detection of cancer. The company is based in the Clinical Sciences Building on the Nottingham City Hospital site.

Oncimmune is a leading early cancer detection company developing and commercialising its proprietary early cancer detection (EarlyCDT®) platform technology. The company was founded in 2003 and launched its first product, EarlyCDT-Lung, in 2012 and since then over 150,000 commercial tests have been sold. Further serum assays for early detection of other solid tumours are currently under development.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated scientific professional with proven writing skills to join our team as a Science Writer and be part of the team responsible for the written scientific output of the company.

An ideal Science Writer will have:

  • A minimum of a degree in life-science with an advanced understanding of biology and knowledge of the molecular basis of cancer.
  • Excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills and the ability to work as part of a team are vital, as interaction with managers, group leaders and research staff is a key aspect of the role.
  • You must be highly organised, proactive, pay close attention to detail and be comfortable and able to work to challenging and competing deadlines.
  • You will have substantial experience of writing for peer reviewed publications, as well as strong editorial experience and advanced knowledge of Microsoft Office.
