Oxfordshire Science Park to Create 1,000 Jobs

Culham Science Park in Oxfordshire is set to expand, with up to 1,000 new science and technology jobs.

Three new research labs and office space have been discussed at the Abingdon site, and a planning application has been sent to the council. The 1,000 jobs include skilled and unskilled workers, including the construction of the new buildings and the scientists then working in them once they have been completed.

The created jobs are set to expand the workforce at the Science Park by 50%, to near 3,000. Should planning permission be granted, private companies will be invited to move operations to the park, before construction begins. Currently with 2,000 staff and 45 companies, the Culham Science Park is part of Science Vale UK, which includes two other Oxfordshire sites employing over 10,000 people between them. The expanding of the Abingdon site can only boost the area’s scientific centre credentials further.

CK Science launches new website

CK Science, the leading scientific recruitment consultancy, launched an interactive new website today. The new site has two main goals:

  1.  Enhancing the candidate experience by simplifying the search facility
  2. Providing a more personal service by increasing the candidate’s ability to communicate with their CK consultant.

 The bold decision has been taken to place the candidate experience firmly at the centre of the website’s functionality, whether it’s for a proximity-based job search, or to identify the best CK Consultant to help according to location, discipline or employment preference.

The new site introduces technologies and functionalities that have not been used in scientific recruitment before, once again showing that CK Science is a leader in their field. The new tools include:

  • A candidate-only zone (CK+) which enables applicants to personalise their registration space, store and amend their CV and save job searches.
  • A corporate video which captures the personality of CK Science.
  • The facility to request a Skype call with a Consultant to get a more personalised service.
  • A one-stop shop for candidates needing advice on searching for a new job, getting the most from their CV or improving their interview technique.  All the career information and advice is now located in one place (Career Zone) for reference or to be browsed at leisure.

Jonathan Hart-Smith, Managing Director of CK Science, said, “Customer service is key to the CK Group so we are always looking at ways to improve the online experience.  Whether it’s simplifying the application process or modernising the look and feel of the site, we like to add value wherever we can.  I feel our new website captures that perfectly and additional services such as CK+ will ensure our customer relationships stay fresh and continue to go from strength to strength.” 

Jonathan continues, ”However this has become more to us than just having a good shop front.  We are now looking at other ways to enhance our online offering to make our website the very best place to go for Science jobs and career advice.”

Scientists get £4m to develop ‘designer bacteria’

As reported by Pharma Express, scientists at the University of Glasgow have received £4m from the UK Government to help them develop ‘designer bacteria’.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has distributed funds through the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council with the overall aim of making the UK a world leader in research and application of synthetic biology.

The cash boost will be invested to help scientists and researchers in the Institute of Molecular, System and Cell Biology to develop tools for the production of useful strains of micro-organisms. The Glasgow scientists will use a family of enzymes called recombinases which act as molecular ‘scissors and glue’ for DNA. These will allow the researchers to cut the strands at precisely defined positions and ‘paste’ a new sequence into the gap. The researchers will also use the technology to ‘teach’ cells to count and keep a record of the number they have counted up to in their DNA.

The £4m for the project, which is being led by Prof Stark and his colleagues Dr Sean Colloms and Dr Susan Rosser, will also fund researchers at Aberdeen, York and Nottingham Universities.

David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, said, “Synthetic biology could provide solutions to the global challenges we face and offers significant growth opportunities in a range of important sectors from health to energy. However, the commercialisation of basic science is largely untapped. This investment will help to ensure that academics and industry can realise its full potential.”
