The Clinical BioManufacturing Facility (CBF) at the University of Oxford is seeking an experienced GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) Production Manager to run our cleanroom operations. The CBF is central to translating The University of Oxford’s world-leading medical research into real world impact. Numerous products successfully manufactured at the CBF have entered Phase I/Phase II clinical trials, including those targeting Malaria, HIV, Tuberculosis, Zika, Cancer and Crohn’s Disease.
