Life Sciences Application Specialist – EU

Vironova AB was founded in 2005 as a result of interdisciplinary research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and is today a quickly growing company with around 70 employees. Vironova offers unique services for nanoparticle characterization together with our software solutions (VAS) for advanced electron microscopy image analysis and recently launched a tabletop TEM system (MiniTEM)which enables automated image acquisition and data analysis for Life Sciences applications (e.g. gene therapy).

Therefore, Vironova is now searching for a Life Sciences Application Specialist to act both as a consultant and trainer for customers and as an internal technical resource, exploring opportunities to develop analytical insights through the proper use of Vironova software and microscopy solutions.

After assessing the application’s specific challenges and needs, the Life Sciences Applications Specialist will, in collaboration with Vironova’s Sales and R&D department, be in charge of performing experimental analysis to develop processes which provide reliable information from which users can make informed decisions in process development and manufacturing environments. The Life Sciences Application Specialist will also perform hands on training as well as scientific coaching (experimental plan designs and result analysis).

You will join a scientific team focused on solving analytical challenges for our clients. Therefore, the person we are looking for has:

  • A Master’s degree in Applied Biology, Sciences or Biotechnology Engineer or equivalent experience;
  • Up to 5 years of experience in the field of biotechnology/biopharma;
  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills;
  • Excellent verbal & written communication skills in English (knowledge of other European languages is a plus)
  • Excellent organization of time and an ability to prioritize to meet tight deadlines;
  • An ability to develop relationships with customers and within Vironova.

In addition, you will collaborate with the Vironova Sales team to generate and grow the business; plan and execute product demonstrations and trials; and act as an internal product specialist to assist Product Owners and R&D in the development of new applications and improvement of current ones. It is advantageous if you have previous experience with electron microscopy, a good understanding of image analysis techniques and/or previous experience with basic programming or workflow scripting.

Traveling to clients and conferences is part of the position, mainly in the EU.
