This is a really exciting time to join Vectura. Our transition to a CDMO model means you’ll see variety in the work you do, with interesting projects and great opportunities to further your professional experience.

About the role

In this role, you’ll be supporting one of our biggest and most successful product lines. You will be developing liquid formulation for nebuliser products. This will involve development of products through their lifecycle, including process and formulation development. Additionally, you will have the analytical skills to perform testing of inhalation products and will be responsible for elements of method development and validation.

As a Senior Scientist, you’ll be a role model for others. You’ll work with teams across our business, suppliers, and customers to continually build our capabilities. As a recognised specialist, you’ll help plan and oversee work, provide guidance and technically review and approve reports.

About you

You’ll be a degree qualified Scientist, ideally with experience of working with inhaled medicines and inhalation testing. Previous exposure to nebuliser development and testing would be desirable, but not essential.


At Vectura everybody’s input is important. We actively encourage new ideas and fresh thinking – that’s how we continue to innovate and improve. We believe that by trusting and investing in our people we can deliver the best solutions to our customers.

If you’re looking for a career with empowerment and the opportunity to grow we’d love to hear from you.
