At MacDougall Biomedical Communications (MBI) we are passionate about communicating science. Whether we are pitching a story to the media, explaining a technology to investors or working on building a business development relationship, it is our job to support our clients as they build leading companies in the life science industry. To succeed here you will need to first and foremost have a passion for learning about science, technology and innovation. You will need to be able to combine creative communication skills with professional integrity and a die-hard dedication to consistency and credibility. At MBI we're a small group with a lot of responsibility so you will need to be an extremely organized, detail-orientated team player. On the flip side every day presents new challenges and you will have to be able to independently identify and solve problems without step-by-step instructions. Finally, keep in mind that this is a client-based service position we pride ourselves in making the personal sacrifices to get the job done right. Are you up to it? Read on…
As a member of the MBI team you will get involved with some of the most important deals and events in the industry. Some of your tasks will include: (1) database research and management: cold-calling companies and organizations to get contact information and conference dates; (2) investor outreach: targeting appropriate members of the financial community to arrange meetings and maintain contact; (3) biotechnology industry research: digging into both subscription databases and other online resources to uncover and analyze fact sheets and other information so that we can all stay on top of our game and; (4) writing: whether it's emails, press releases, website content or fact sheets, we are looking for a very strong writer who can digest hard core science and make it appealing to our audiences.
