LifeLabs is currently seeking a new Director for the Clinical Chemistry Division in British Columbia. The candidate will join a team of Clinical Chemists and Medical Biochemists and will be based out of our state-of-the-art-facility on Canada's west coast in the city of Burnaby, BC.
BC is the westernmost province in Canada, bordered by the rugged and spectacular Pacific coast to the west and on the northwest by the U.S. state of Alaska, directly north by the Yukon and Northwest Territories, Alberta to the east, and by the states of Washington, Idaho, and Montana to the south. British Columbia is known as Canada's outdoor playground, offering year-round outdoor adventure such as river rafting, world class skiing, kayaking, and camping.
The LifeLabs biochemistry laboratory provides community and reference laboratory services across the spectrum of clinical biochemistry from high volume routine testing to special chemistry, Immunopathology and Toxicology. The laboratory is equipped with cutting edge analytical technologies and robotic systems with a view to providing the highest standard in laboratory quality and efficiency.
For this position we are seeking an experienced medical biochemist or general/clinical pathologist with interest in clinical chemistry and will consider suitably experienced clinical chemists. The candidate will need to demonstrate leadership skills and technical competence in the testing processes for clinical chemistry. Experience in high volume chemistry and an area of specialist interest will be of added value. There are opportunities to be involved with external laboratory groups and for suitably qualified individuals there is the possibility for an appointment or involvement with the University of British Columbia.
Applicants must hold or be eligible for certification by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, international equivalent or Canadian Academy of Clinical Biochemists. All candidates must be eligible for registration and licensure in British Columbia.
