We are seeking qualified applicants for the position of Biomedical/Microsystem Scientist. The candidate will work within a highly motivated and diverse team of professionals to develop complex medical devices and diagnostic tools for Life Science applications. The candidate will work on the design, implementation, engineering and testing of microsystems/microfluidic systems. These microsystems will be integrated into a diagnostic platform aimed at testing drug response on ex-vivo biological samples and tissues on selected solid tumors. Final goal is the extraction of highly-valuable information to be used in the clinic, diagnostic, prognostic and predictive environment.
