Your responsibilities

As an entrepreneurial team, we are driving the development of a novel sensing technology that can change the landscape of diagnostics in medicine. Utilizing inventive photonic sensors coupled to advanced machine-learning analytics for big-data processing, the new sensor offers novel disease detection with immense impact for healthcare and strong business potential.

In the past two years we were successful in acquiring more than 2 million Euros through several innovation awards and pre-seed grants, and are currently completing our prototype. We are about to start high-populated international clinical trials and need your help to make it happen.

You will join the start-up team driving the clinical validation of our prototype and help navigate through regulatory aspects like the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR). We are working on applications for our start-up phase.

The successful candidate will get the chance to join our team, preparing the start-up after the successful prototype validation. Associated tasks include:

  • Coordinate MDR activities to enable the validation of our prototype in clinical trials.
  • Compile regulatory requirements (e.g. MDR, standards, etc) and documentation  in a concise and precise manner.
  • Contribute to reimbursement and market-access strategy, market applications and corresponding timelines.
  • Lead our fundraising activities towards start-up phase.

Your qualifications

The successful applicant must have the following:

  • University degree (MSc or PhD) in any of physics, engineering, medicine or biology or in business administration with experience in medical technology.
  • Experience in the regulatory field for medical devices (MDR) or clinical project management for trials under MDR.
  • Motivated team player who works well as part of an entrepreneurial team.
  • Experience in working in fast-paced environments.
  • Great communication skills.
  • Business fluent command of the English and German language.

Desirable qualifications
