A Typical Advertisement
We are seeking a talented team player to lead our
in-vitro assay development group. The candidate
will be responsible for managing a team of
researcher and technicians, driving innovation in
bioanalytical method development for clinical
studies in compliance with EMEA, FDA and IHC
guidelines, with a focus on cell based bioassays
and FACS analysis to monitor pharmakokinetics,
pharmacodynamics and immunogenicity. The duties
will also include participation in
multidisciplinary project teams, communication
with external experts, collaboration partners and
contract laboratories.
25
The candidate must possess a PhD degree in the
field of biological science (Biology,
Biochemistry or Immunology), should have a strong
immunology background, 2-3 years of hands-on
laboratory experience in cell based assay and
FACS based assays development and a minimum of 2
years experience in managing people in an
industrial environment. The position requires
excellent verbal and written English
communication skills, a high level of
self-motivation, a result oriented working style,
the ability to independently design and implement
experiments as well as to work in a multinational
team. Candidates should be willing to travel.
