The Diagnostics Technical Support team is seeking a talented, hardworking co-op to join our team. The qualified individual will play an important role in supporting laboratory-based customers who use PerkinElmer instrumentation and reagents, primarily in newborn screening applications.

The Technical Support team supports North American and Latin American customers by providing troubleshooting help, customer training, deployments and optimizations for PerkinElmer Diagnostic products. We take pride in supporting laboratories, as they utilize PerkinElmer equipment and assays to detect life-threatening disorders through genetic screening.

This position offers the opportunity to interface closely with sales, field service engineers, and other PerkinElmer support teams to ensure customer satisfaction. You will gain an understanding of genetic disorders and laboratory processes used in newborn screening, which is a key strength of our team.

  • Interest in health & life sciences industries

  • Ability to function both independently and on multi-disciplinary teams
