Qualification:DegreeExperience:2-3 Years
Job Type:PermanentSalary: Not Disclosed
May be suitable for: Polymer Scientist



Polymer Scientist



Location Limerick - Castletroy

The Polymer Scientist is responsible for providing product design engineering technical acumen on cross-functional technology and product development teams during the pre-concept, development, design and documentation for new and improved surgical devices, surgical implants or related medical products.


As an independent contributor, the Polymer Scientist must be able to coordinate and implement concurrent engineering practices either within the organization during an organic product development process or when working with an external development partner. As part of the Core Team, the Polymer Scientist must coordinate their work with the rest of the team, communicate clearly and effectively, and harmonize with other activities.


This role will be primarily laboratory- and cleanroom-based with up to 80% of time spent preparing samples, prototyping, testing, and generating data on iterative product designs and proof-of-concept prototypes. We are open to accepting applications from candidates with varying degrees of experience; both mid-level and senior polymer scientists are encouraged to apply.





Responsibilities

  • Development of early-stage technology development supporting future product development for implantable surgical devices.
  • Contribute to developing new prototype designs in a cross-functional team environment requiring an ability to develop innovative solutions that address our customer needs by overcoming chemical, material, and manufacturing process design challenges.
  • Supports creating design specifications and defining the relationship between the design specifications and the critical design features, including the development of clinically relevant test methods that verify the product meeting the specifications.
  • Assist in planning and conducting tests on components, subassemblies, materials and tools. Create / modify / update the design as needed and process the engineering change request within defined time limits.
  • Generate product development documentation and reports using appropriate technical writing.
  • Participate in technical review meetings.
  • Ability to work effectively with a diverse, international cross-functional team.
  • Ability to think creatively and a willingness to propose ideas in an open forum. Apply creative problem-solving skills to novel or complex applications.
  • Clearly communicate information and ideas through a variety of media to an audience of broad technical understanding in a manner that engages and helps them understand and retain the message.
  • Establishing courses of action and plans for self and others to ensure that work is completed efficiently; successfully encourages others to take responsibility for their work packages.
  • Additional tasks as required.



Experince
  • Minimum BSc degree qualified (or equivalent) in the field of Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Protein Science, or similar.
  • Demonstrable track record in corporate, start-up, or industry research environment with minimum 2 years’ experience working with coatings, proteins, adhesives, drug-eluting particle design, pharmokinetics, and/or similar field(s).
  • Knowledge of implantable biomaterials and coatings (e.g. thin films, foams, gels, etc.) for medical/surgical applications.
  • Experience working with nano/microparticle technologies a strong plus.
  • Experience working with proteins and/or enzymes a strong plus.
  • Have strong technical writing skills producing requirements specifications, risk reports, and test procedures, and experience in traditional systems engineering development, architectural design and/or project engineering.
  • Ability to prioritize and multi-task.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication with all levels of technical and operating management.
  • Self-starter and ability to work with minimal direction and supervision as well as part of a team.
  • Knowledge of GMP, current FDA Medical Devices legislation and regulations is a plus.
  • Experience with Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)/Design of Experiments and the Stanford Biodesign process is a plus.
  • International travel may be required for this position (up to 10+%).


Any applicant must be eligible to work in Ireland. Existing work permit or EU passport required. No visa sponsorship will be offered with this role.
