My client is a rapidly growing venture-capital backed company that has developed an entirely new class of diagnostic product - an instrument-free molecular test. The Company's products combine the superior performance of laboratory testing with the proven market benefits of disposable tests. Their first product for COVID-19 testing is a simple disposable test that uses a nasal swab sample to give an ultra-rapid result without the need for any instrumentation. As a molecular test it exploits the Gold Standard chemistry of laboratory tests but is easy to use in any setting and thus will enable widespread decentralised testing for COVID-19. The company has ambitious plans to grow from its strong foundations and become a leader in this exciting new segment of the diagnostics industry. They are currently expanding its molecular development capabilities and is seeking an experienced Scientist / Senior Scientist to join the team.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated scientist to contribute to the development and growth of an innovative molecular diagnostics start-up company. The successful candidate will perform a crucial role in the development and verification and validation testing of molecular diagnostic products. The successful candidate would work in close collaboration with the existing laboratory research and engineering teams in a multidisciplinary environment.

The role will include the following key responsibilities:

* Culturing of pathogens (e.g. viruses) for diagnostic product development;

* Perform verification and validation testing of diagnostic tests;

* Support the establishment of processes for the operation of relevant laboratory facilities;

* Document and report results and data in accordance with agreed protocols;

* Ensure compliance of laboratory operations with the company's quality system.

Candidates are expected to have a scientific degree relevant to the role in addition to laboratory experience in the diagnostics industry. Prior experience of virology, microbiology and/or tissue culture and knowledge of verification and validation testing of diagnostic products would be an advantage. A post graduate degree (Masters / PhD qualification) would be an advantage. More broadly, my client is looking for a team player with the initiative, flexibility, drive and enthusiasm to make a difference, to achieve goals and exceed expectations in a dynamic start-up environment.

Services advertised by Gold Group are those of an Agency and/or an Employment Business.
We will contact you within the next 14 days if you are selected for interview
