The Life Science Business Unit within Thermo Fisher Scientific MSD division provides valuable workflow solutions for biological research. The core of our offerings are solutions for 3D volume imaging ranging from atomic resolution imaging of protein complexes for structure determination to volume acquisitions of cellular compartments for functional modelling of those subcellular structures. These workflows combine different imaging modalities across different length scales to optimize experimental yield and ease-of-use.
The Product Manager (PM) Large Volume Analysis(LVA) is responsible for the portfolio of electron microscopy solutions enabling volumetric analysis of cell- and tissue samples with nanometer resolution. The position aims at strengthening and growing Thermo Fisher Scientific MSD presence on the market globally by optimally leveraging the current portfolio of solutions while acting as a driver for next generation systems and architectures.
The Electron Microscopy business at Thermo Fisher is deeply rooted in the scientific community thanks to a long history dating back to the first commercial TEMs in the 1950s. Thanks to these connections, the PM LVA will be able to work closely with key scientists all over the world to explore both applications of volume EM in different scientific field, but also new technologies
As the LVA workflow is still maturing, the PM LVA will have a unique opportunity to shape the portfolio and market approach as well as the positioning of the portfolio within Thermo Fisher
Finally, Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a unique breadth of opportunities for growth, worldwide and over many different technologies and functions
