We are making a big expansion in the cellular biology area of the life sciences research market. We have recently launched an exciting new fully automated cell sorter that allows researchers to concentrate on their work rather than their instrument. Check out this video: Developing Bio-Rad's S3™ Cell Sorter: The Great Cell Sorting Redesign (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzHYxa0poOQ)
And if that isn’t enough, we are launching a new cell analyzer called the ZE5 (http://www.bio-rad.com/en-us/product/ze5-cell-analyzer). This one is a real hot rod with up to 5 lasers and 28 fluorescent detectors. It’s got a temperature controlled plate based sample loader, high velocity sheath, on board bulk fluids, and a big FPGA doing on board digital signal processing.
We are looking for help leading our charge into this new space, heading up a dynamic engineering team on our journey to make new instruments and push the envelope to help unlock the secrets held deep within a cell.
Responsible to help guide and lead an engineering team for all platform development activities of cell biology research instruments (heating, cooling, fluidics, electronics, mechanical systems, optics, lasers, PMTs) including the development of advanced flow cytometers and cell sorters. This is a senior engineering position with technical leadership that would manage the activities of a cross functional engineering team but still have a hands-on approach. We require a strong emphasis on quality, reliability, and manufacturability in all activities.
Senior engineering specialist with a full understanding of working concepts, principles, and practices in flow cytometry and cell sorting. Uses knowledge to expand on standard techniques and processes in creative and effective ways. Applies extensive knowledge of technical principles, theories, and concepts in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and optical engineering and employs sound project management. Integrates research, information and trends into solutions to identify and solve complex problems that require evaluation of variables and the regular use of ingenuity and innovation. Works with general direction and acts as a key contributor in own area of knowledge. Shall provide guidance to lower-level employees. Guides the successful completion of major programs, processes and/or projects for the department/function, and often takes on a project leadership role. Has responsibility for communications with key external development partners and contract engineering firms.
