Bioelectronics – Analyst

Lux Research is seeking candidates for an Analyst opening in our Bioelectronics vertical. Analysts are the bedrock of the Lux Research team, conducting the primary and secondary research that powers the firms' research reports and consulting engagements. Analysts spend most of their time conducting primary research interviews with executives, researchers, and thought leaders; chasing down data points; analyzing quantitative data; devising creative ways to present data and ideas visually; and helping manage the operations of a rapidly-growing, geographically-dispersed team. Analysts take on significant client-facing responsibilities commensurate with their experience and growth.

Analysts within our bioelectronics practice will be required to cover and advise on emerging technologies across bio-related sensors, diagnostics, and therapeutic value chains including analytes, devices, systems, and even services. Bioelectronic innovations are set to impact applications from point-of-care diagnostics and biometric monitoring to environmental sensing and homeland security. Across these various applications, analysts must be able to map rapidly shifting market dynamics – including new business models, regulations, and policies – to the emerging technologies that will enable widespread adoption in everyday life.
