Medical Developments International:
International business development director

Medical Developments is looking for a non-executive director with proven international business development experience and who has taken a product from Australia to foreign markets.

The company prefers a candidate who previously worked in business-to-business pharmaceuticals, experienced operator with existing contacts and a working knowledge of hospitals in other markets.

Suitable candidates should email their curriculum vitae to: or telephone: +61 3 (0) 414 383 593.

Biotech Daily: intern or cadet journalist wanted

Final year or recent journalism graduate wanted for permanent part-time work editing ASX announcements for Biotech Daily.

Biotech Daily translates medical and finance jargon into plain English.

The industry journal-of-record reports primarily on the ASX-listed biotech stocks (not including agriculture or veterinary) and we use an almost standard AP House Style, with a Macquarie Dictionary mix of US and UK spellings.

I'm looking for a Journalism graduate (or final year student) who wants to work in serious hard news daily journalism, which includes a fair amount of “template” rote work, but also requires the eagle eye of an investigative journalist to “spot the disinformation”, and to strict daily deadlines.

There is scope for real first-hand reporting and potentially interview features, but the main game is covering the waterfront of the ASX.

We also report on research institutes and regulatory matters.

While an understanding of anatomy and physiology might help, the ability to use Google is probably more important. MUST be able to add up and subtract or use a calculator.

I would expect a brief training period (two to five half-days) to ensure the candidate could do the work.

A suitable candidate could expect two or three four-hour afternoon shifts a week, so it could suit a final year student. Payment is at the current Australian Journalists Association (MEAA) rate.

Work hours can be flexible but training would be in the morning and work shifts in the afternoon. Editing can be done remotely or in the Biotech Daily office. Computer, modem, wifi, tea, coffee and biscuits provided.

Applicants must be as keen as mustard and be able to find the office without directions.
