Your tasks will be to:

  • Ensure successful people management within the device testing team and work closely together with the rest of the Pre-clinical management team
  • Develop new pre-clinical test methods and models and perform device testing in the laboratory in a team together with a laboratory technicianBuild a strong knowledge base within the team that supports Coloplast’s strategic focus on securing clinical evidence
