This testing is required for the release of raw materials, in process materials, and final containers.
This position is 3rd shift 12 hr rotating position 6p 6a
The Assistant Biologist is expected to recognize "abnormal" results and to perform some preliminary evaluation of her/his performance of the test procedure. The Assistant Biologist consults with Associate Biologists and/or the Laboratory Supervisor on significant problems.
The solutions to such problems are always within the confines of the test procedures. All of the test results of an Assistant Biologist are reviewed by either the Lab Supervisor or a designated Associate Biologist for "reasonableness" and conformance to the required limit(s). No unexpected test result generated by an Assistant Biologist is accepted without an independent confirmation (normally by an Associate Biologist) and review of the results by the Lab Supervisor. While this is an entry-level position, the Assistant Biologist is expected to progress to a performance level requiring less direct supervision (either by the Laboratory Supervisor or the assigned Associate Biologist trainer). The Assistant Biologist has a variety of weekly / monthly assignments (e.g.: preparation of solutions, housekeeping, etc.) that they are expected to accomplish without specific direction to do so. An Assistant Biologist participates in Quality Control studies (blind testing series, validation protocols, precision and accuracy studies) of tests for which they are trained.
Assistant Level: An Associates Degree in a life science field, medical technology, or related curriculum and a minimum of six months of applicable laboratory experience or a BS/BA degree in a life science field, medical technology, or related curriculum is required
Associate Level: The Associate Biologist position is normally a progression from the Assistant Biologist position in the Quality Assurance Biology Labs. Therefore, the Associate Biologist position also requires knowledge equivalent to a minimum of two years of college level biology courses (one year of general biology course(s) with associated laboratory work, and one year of microbiology
course(s) with associated laboratory work). While the content of the course work specified above is generally applicable to the Assistant Biology position, the associated laboratory experience is more specifically applicable to the position's work assignments.
