We are seeking a medical officer to join the Advanced Development Programme (ADP) team.

  • Maintain CPD to ensure your advice to projects and relevant external organisations is current
  • Maintain currency in clinical affairs regulations and requirements affecting pharmaceutical product development activities at Dstl
  • Promote and raise the importance of clinical affairs issues within the organisation and amongst stakeholders
