Autolus is an exciting, ambitious and well-financed biotechnology company spun-out from University College London (UCL) to develop and commercialise the next generation of engineered T-cell therapies for haematological and solid tumours. They intend to be at the forefront of a revolution in medicine in which life- threatening diseases are treated with a patient’s own cells, modified outside the body and then returned to the patient where they will cure the disease. They are currently seeking bright, enthusiastic and motivated Scientists to work in their custom-built laboratories in West London. Successful candidates will join a rapidly-expanding, top-quality team and experience the excitement and sense of accomplishment presented by an innovative biotechnology start-up.
