Based in Cambridge we have an urgent and exciting opportunity for an experienced Human Factors Engineer to join a global pharmaceutical solutions provider, working in state of the art facilities.
 
The Role
 
You will be responsible for all human factors aspects of new and existing drug delivery devices, from the supply, assembly and testing of materials and components from third party suppliers to device usability input and ensuring compliance and demonstration of human factors research as part of regulatory submission documentation. The successful candidate will also be integral to risk management and generation of all company device Instruction For Use (IFU) documentation. As you will be a SME for all Human Factors considerations the successful candidate will need to be an excellent communicator and equally confident speaking with internal teams, external design house partners and worldwide healthcare regulatory bodies.
