Philips is looking for an imaging research scientist.
The Site-Scientist GOPI Research will need to be highly motivated to broaden Philips exposure in a wide variety of disciplines, from Basic Science and Engineering to clinical translation and product incorporation.
Research will be directed toward advanced Imaging applications beyond current platforms with an emphasis on changing healthcare delivery and enhancing technology transfer to product development.
As Site Scientist in the Hospices Civils de Lyon, you will first collaborate with the clinical site pre-clinical and clinical teams and Philips group to focus ideas, derive agreed timelines, and evaluate resulting prototypes.
You are responsible to design, develop and implement a Research Plan that is consistent with the CRB (Clinical Research Board), IS (Imaging Systems) and IT initiatives, and also playing on the strengths of the Academic site itself.
You will provide leadership in authoring of technical reports, publication in peer-reviewed journals as well as preparing submissions for European Commission research grants.
Becoming responsible for coordinating work between the Philips stakeholders and the clinical site, you will act as the single point of contact for the Academic center of the HCL as well as Philips for the GOPI Research Agreement.
The Site Research Scientist will report to the Head of the CRB in Europe, a cross-Business, global organization providing scientific support and expertise to research initiatives.
The position offers much room for initiatives in research topics and design as well as for publishing and for extending scientific reputation. You will integrate a multidisciplinary and multi-site team and have the opportunity to have very diverse and enriching interactions with Philips internal stakeholders (Intellectual Property, Legal, Philips Research.) as well as a broad network of physicians and researchers in Lyon.
