Design quality engineer
Come join Spermosens, a leading developer of revolutionizing medical device products for male infertility, individualizing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) diagnostics and treatment creating a new standard for faster and safer IVF treatments, as their Manager Biologics and GMP! With Spermosens first product, JUNO- Checked, it will – for the first time – be possible to determine a sperms ability to fertilize the egg cell. This in turn enables the IVF clinic to choose the appropriate fertilization treatment. Today, around 85 percent of IVF treatments fail. Being able to determine the sperm’s ability to fertilize the egg cell is expected to cause to a reduction in the number of IVF-treatments. As we are growing this is a new role and here you´ll get the chance to contribute with you expertise in for example recombinant protein production and purification and be part of causing a reduction in the number of IVF-treatments.
To thrive and perform well in this role, we believe that you bring the following experiences:
- PhD in biochemistry or industrial biotechnology.
- 3+ years industrial experience in recombinant protein production and purification.
- Knowledge of biophysical characterization techniques for quality control of proteins.
- 2+ years experience in GMP production of biologics and biopharmaceuticals.
- Experience in writing SOPs and technical documentation.
We will be extra happy if you also bring experience from production and purification of membrane proteins and/or nonenzymatic proteins from mammalian hosts and experience in biophysical characterization techniques for quality control of secondary and tertiary structures of proteins. Knowledge of human In Vitro Fertilization and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection and experience with statistical methods will also be seen as an advantage.
Your personality is defined by characteristics like entrepreneurial and self-driven. You care about the details while having the ability to take a step back and see the big picture. Furthermore, you are a natural leader with excellent communication skills who thrives in a diverse environment.
For us, it is important that all competence and skills in the labor market are utilized. We welcome all applicants and strive for diversity.
Current commercial methods to analyze the sperm quality only look into the physical aspects of the sperm. Spermosens is developing first of its kind automated sperm diagnostic device JUNO-Checked that relies of their ability to bind to egg cell-proteins. The approach will, for the first time, enable detection of fertilization capacity of sperms, and hence choice of the appropriate IVF treatment method. Spermosens aims at reducing the conventional iterations in IVF treatments to achieve pregnancy with JUNO-Checked.
As Manager Biologics and GMP you will be an important key player and responsible for our projects in developing our products. You´ll coordinate development activities and lead sourcing and outsourced production and purification of GMP and non-GMP recombinant proteins. Likewise, participate in research projects with partners and consultants on sperm selection and diagnostics. By bringing your knowledge and expertise, you will make a great and important impact of the lives of involuntarily childless couples. Depending on which experiences you bring, you will be part in shaping the role going forward. The position is based at the Headquarters in Lund and you will report to Head of Design and Development.
Some of the responsibilities in this role will also be:
- Establish specifications for quality control of recombinant proteins.
- Establish specifications for quality control of JUNO-Picked – Spermosens’ medical device for sperm selection.
- Conduct user interviews and establish user and market specifications for JUNO-Picked.
