Senior Assay Development Scientist - IVD Medical Devices

Cambridgeshire   •  Negotiable  •  Permanent, Full time


Senior Assay Development Scientist - IVD Medical Devices - Cambridge

A new and growing Medical Devices company, based in Cambridge, are currently looking for an experienced Assay Development Scientist to help develop the IVD Assays needed for this new Medical Devices development.

The role is likely to grow into a leadership role as the company grows, but to start with you will need to have hands on Assay Development experience, ideally within Medical Devices and IVD, and will be reporting into a Sciences Manager.

The technology you will be working on is a Medical Diagnostics Device and ideally you will have previously worked on rapid In Vitro Diagnostics.

This company has good plans for growth and are backed well financially, meaning more job security than you would have with most large companies.

Along with industry experience or a post-doc role (that was commercially focused), you will need to hold a PhD within an IVD field, or specific industry experience within the IVD sector.

Specific molecular biology techniques would be preferred, such as RT and qRT-PCR nucleic acid extraction and quantification. However similar molecular biology techniques would be considered.

Knowledge of QMS and ISO 13485 would be welcomed but not essential.

Apart from an interesting career on a new technology, you will be rewarded with an excellent starting salary, generous pension, share purchase options, medical & life insurance and other excellent benefits normally seen with larger organisations. There is also relocation assistance available on a case by case basis.

I expect a lot of interest in this role, so if you are interested, I suggest you make an application now or risk missing out.

For more information, please feel free to call Andrew Welsh, Director of Medical Devices recruitment and Scientific recruitment specialists Newton Colmore Consulting, on +44 121 268 2240 or make an application and one of our team at Newton Colmore Consulting will contact you.

Newton Colmore Consulting is a specialist recruitment company within the Medical Devices, Scientific Engineering, Data Science, Machine Learning, Scientific Software, Robotics, Science, Electronics Design, New Product Design, Human Factors, Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance and Field Service Engineering sectors.
