New co-workers needed! // Omnio rekryterar!

Do you want to work with development of a protein drug in Umeå? Omnio is expanding, and is recruiting talent to Umeå.

Omnio AB has unique knowledge of pro-inflammatory pharmaceuticals aimed towards wound healing. Our drug candidate can initiate and enhance healing in wounds that are otherwise hard to heal, such as diabetic foot ulcers or chronic tympanic membrane perforations.

Annually millions of patients undergo amputations of lower limbs due to non-healing foot ulcers. Together with our Canadian biopharma partner ProMetic Life Science we want to lower that number drastically by providing a plasma derived protein pharmaceutical which can stimulate the wound healing process. We are in the process of entering clinical trials and therefore we will need to strengthen our pre-clinical team with three new positions.

Due to the variation in work load, which is to a large extent based on demand from the upcoming clinical trials, the nature of the job will vary considerably. Therefore we are looking for candidates who can do both routine work with standardized biomedical analysis procedures, as well as participate in research projects with less standardized protocols to explore new knowledge.

Omnio is a spin-off from Umea University with almost no hierarchy, so we need people who are pragmatic and can work independently. You have to develop and adapt SOPs on the go, and often come up with creative ways to solve unforeseen problems. Within the different research and development projects we study both in-vitro and in-vivo models.

The successful candidate should therefore have experience from an active research environment since not only laborative work, but also planning, analysing and reporting will be carried out in an independent fashion. Practical experience of biomedical and tissue analysis from both in-vivo and in-vitro experiments is highly desired.

Our current work force already contains a diverse mix of people, so we have no preference in age, race, sex, religious belief or other similar classification unrelated to your competence. We encourage all skilled people to apply. Excellent knowledge of English or Swedish required.
