Due to continued investment, a medical device start-up has an exciting opportunity for Senior Scientist to join its team. As a Senior Scientist your main objective will be to help in the development and optimisation of the target binding magnetic bead products for clinical use. You must have a strong immunoassay development background, ideally with good knowledge of conjugation and surface functionalisation.
As a Senior Scientist your main objective will be to help in the development and optimisation of the target binding magnetic bead products for clinical use. You will be expected to manage and contribute to the design and development of new products (e.g. literature search, drafting new protocols, etc), as well as hands-on lab work testing the products under flow conditions. You will be expected to perform the necessary data analysis and interpretation and produce reports. At the same time, you will work along the engineering team to help in the translation of the laboratory protocols into clinical instructions for use. Your day to day will require both project management (supplier management, allocation of resources, risk analysis, etc), and hands-on lab work.
Experience working on the development of IVD devices such as lateral flow immunoassays would be a plus.
