Diagnostics For All (DFA) is an exciting non-profit organization focused on improving global health by creating and commercializing very low cost, easy-to-use, point-of-care medical diagnostic devices for underserved populations in the developing world. Conveniently located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, we are creating a new generation of diagnostic devices using elegantly simple paper-microfluidics technology originally developed in the lab of Professor George Whitesides at Harvard University. DFA has received several grants to develop this technology from varied sources including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, and DARPA. Please learn more at www.dfa.org.
Product Development Engineer (Job code: PDE 001)
DFA is a group of committed scientists working collaboratively on number of projects from infectious diseases to vaccine surveillance to novel nucleic acid technologies. DFA has a series of diagnostics tests in various stages of development; some tests are in concept stage, others are working prototypes and others are near completion with field tested clinical data behind them. The atmosphere is informal but intense, with a real sense of urgency.
DFA now needs to convert these late-stage tests into deliverable products, with the first product – a liver function test – due out this year
If you can answer yes to some of these questions and you are not put-off by them, then we would love to hear from you. The right answers to these questions are more important than an MS or a PhD, but one of these could help you. Ideally in the past you might also have shepherded a product through the 510k FDA process, or had experience of the clinical studies necessary. None of this would you have to do on your own, you would be supported by a close knit team. If you are interested in an exciting opportunity to change the way health care is delivered in much of the world, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
