For our customer located in Rotkreuz/Switzerland we are currently looking for a: Project Manager (m/f/d)


When we develop a new test, we conduct Clinical Trials to demonstrate its performance.

We call such activities “primary use”. However, data may as well be used beyond this initial activity.

Typically, this requires combining data across disciplines and geographies. E.g. by comparing what a customer lab has ordered with what tests its instruments have actually performed, and enriching this with the real world pandemic status, we can optimize supply chain and test availability across the world. In the new Diagnostics Strategy, data becomes a central element of our activities. In order to execute our strategy, we need to be able to scale the so-called “secondary use” of data, and this is how we intend to do this:

We defined dedicated data domains for Diagnostics. Each data domain is (or will be) operated by a data domain team, which is responsible to make data available for secondary use, in ways that are easy to understand and easy to use. Data domains will be associated with full time employees and budget; they can be understood as something like a lifecycle team – for data, and for data products.

Re-using data requires a number of means such as cataloguing the data in the domain, curating it in terms of
data standards and towards a common data model, and establishing controls and processes to share and
protect appropriately.

Across domains, we want to establish a common governance, e.g. data models, and common data
infrastructure, e.g. a data catalogue and data hub technology.
To establish the Data Domains Technical Reading from Instruments and Instrument Consumption, we are
looking for a Project Leader in the area of data management.
