A large, existing research and development facility with a Laboratory Developed Test for prostate and bladder cancer is registering with the FDA and looking to launch their test to market in March. The laboratory is applying for CLEP licensure and is seeking TWO qualified laboratory/medical directors at their Albany-based location.


Ideally, the perfectly qualified individuals will have a biochemistry background and current New York Certificate of Qualification in Oncology – Molecular and Cellular Tumor Markers. Their Albany facility is already capable of running 250,000 tests annually and will be able to handle a volume of 1 million tests by March.


The company's headquarters is based in NYC; while they're looking for someone to live and work full-time in Albany for at least two years at the existing facility, there will be opportunity for these individuals to relocate to NYC to work at the larger lab space that is currently being built and that will be capable of processing 10 million tests annually; the company is flexible in this regard, however, should the individuals prefer to stay in Albany after the initial two years. If the hired individuals are not already located in Albany, relocation assistance will be offered, as will relocation assistance to NYC should the hired individuals decide to make that second move.

1. Degree: M.D./D.O./D.P.M. OR Ph.D. in an approved science.


2. Board certified by an HHS-approved board.
