Senior Scientist, Assay Development

Nanōmix is growing rapidly and needs talented, energetic people to join us in Emeryville, California - located between the San Francisco Bay Bridge and Berkeley. High performance and innovative thinking drives Nanōmix success as a pacesetter in the fields of nanotechnology and point-of-care diagnostics. We offer a competitive compensation package including stock options, excellent benefits, and significant opportunities in a high energy start-up environment.

Nanomix is the leader in the development of mobile, affordable point-of-care diagnostics, offering a handheld testing platform and assays that provide rapid, accurate, quantitative information for use in settings where time-to-diagnosis is critical for clinical decision-making and improved patient care. Our goal is to expand access to quality healthcare by bringing diagnostics to the point of initial patient interaction, whether in the hospital or in pre-hospital, remote, or alternative settings. Nanomix has tests for the diagnosis of sepsis and COVID-19 and is looking for an assay development scientist to help accelerate these programs and the development of other IVD assay products in the pipeline. This is an opportunity to work with a world class team to deliver an advanced, mobile medical diagnostic platform of urgent need to the healthcare industry.
