Thank you for your interest in working at the NC3Rs. Our work covers a wide range of scientific disciplines and technologies, and recruiting talented and committed individuals is key to delivering the NC3Rs mission.

Science-led and evidence-based, the NC3Rs is the UK’s national organisation for the 3Rs, established to accelerate the development and uptake of new models and tools that replace, reduce or refine the use of animals in research and testing. 

The NC3Rs has an annual budget of approximately £10.5M and is primarily funded by Government through the Medical Research Council (MRC) and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), which in turn are part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Our activities are divided between our role as the UK’s major 3Rs research and innovation funder and programmes led by our own team of scientists.

Programme Manager – Chemical Safety Assessment

Salary: £43,116 – £49,891 (plus London allowances) 
Contract Type: Permanent (full and part-time hours available)

Fostering academic/industry interactions to accelerate the development and validation of relevant and predictive models for drug safety and human disease is critical to delivery of the 3Rs. Our scientific staff play a key role in horizon scanning for research opportunities which benefit the 3Rs, identifying potential partnerships to deliver these benefits effectively and acting as an honest broker to facilitate data sharing between companies and sectors to create evidence-bases to support change in practice, policy or regulations. 

The closing date for applications is Sunday 2 June 2024.
