You need to be flexible, be a trouble-shooter, and be able to change priorities in a dynamic and fast-growing organization. If you possess these skills and if you get excited when reading this role you are the person we are looking for!

• Accountable for the registration, calibration, and maintenance of the laboratory equipment. This also includes inviting and bringing in the maintenance crews
• Drafting of documentation (protocols, reports) to standardize methods for the handling of the laboratory equipment.
• Supports laboratory personel when equipment needs to be relocated etc.
