Field Applications & Laboratory | NGS | West Midlands | to £40K

  • Are you working in an NHS lab looking for your next step into a field applications role?

  • Do you have a passion for molecular diagnostics?

  • Would you like to get involved in supporting next generation sequencing solutions for oncology?

This is a rare and extremely exciting opportunity to keep one foot in the lab whilst experiencing a commercial role at the same time! This company provides a full NGS workflow solution for oncology diagnostics. Their products go all the way from patient sample through to data analysis. They are having huge success in Europe and are now focussing more on increasing their UK NHS customer base. This role is hugely integral to their small UK team. You will be carrying out a dual role, part field applications specialist and part lab based.

You will utilise your molecular experience in an NHS laboratory. So if you have a background using qPCR, microarray or NGS as a biomedical or clinical scientist this could be a perfect opportunity to use your experience. Working on a project along with a PhD student, you will be responsible for running this company’s NGS system and products using patient samples to collect and analyse data for the oncology testing range. Your initial focus will be on melanoma, small cell lung cancer and colorectal cancer. This role is vital to increasing business in the NHS as it will enable the company to build up a package of data to help them to prove themselves in this market and achieve national procurement.

The field applications part of the role will run alongside this. You will be forging strong relationships with existing and potential customers. This is a key role because customers will rely on your experience to support them through the decision to purchase. You will be demonstrating instruments, answering queries, training on the instruments and supporting the products if customers encounter problems when using them. You will be a reliable point of contact that they trust for technical advice. So if you find it naturally easy to connect with people and enjoy training junior members of your team this could work very well for you.

The company are team spirited, entrepreneurial and motivated to make their products a huge success. They are definitely on the way up a steep curve of success so this is the perfect time to join them!

If you are a registered Biomedical Scientist or Clinical Science and would like to use your experience to progress in industry and take on a new challenge in an exciting company who are launching new products and going through a period of team growth contact Caroline to speak confidentially on 01279 657716 or
