About AstraZeneca
At AstraZeneca we use scientific excellence as our foundation for driving success in our drug discovery pipeline. We underpin this with strong collaboration, clear direction and a focus on applying cutting-edge research to support drug discovery.

An opportunity is now available to join the Stem & Primary Cell Team within Discovery Sciences, which has responsibility for the generation of novel cellular models, using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and primary cells. These models are used to support projects in all phases of the drug discovery pipeline with a focus on target identification and validation and disease model generation. We are seeking a scientist to join our team in Gothenburg Sweden, where the role will focus on culturing and differentiating iPSCs for cellular model development
