About 4DCELL

4DCell is an innovative French start-up aiming to revolutionize in vitro tests to answer to the urgency of replacing animal models.

At 4Dcell, we develop cell culture systems enabling the control of the cell microenvironment by applying our expertise in biophysics and microfabrication. Such systems tackle current world health challenges on drug discovery and toxicology, such as heart failure, immuno-oncology, hepatic diseases, neuronal disorders. These types of systems are set to become the new standard in cell culture and revolutionize pharmaceutical screening and toxicology assays by increasing the predictability of in vitro models.

We offer you the chance to be part of an important mission: to be a key player in the next generation of in vitro models which will be part of a more efficient and ethical pharma market.

We are in touch with the most talented experts on the market to face these new challenges.

We are passionate, selective, and demanding. We offer career development opportunities with no limits

Position and assignments

Position

As the next scientific project writer/project manager of 4Dcell you will be part of the 4Dcell R&D teams. You will be responsible to develop, write and manage new collaborative research opportunities by looking for novel areas where 4Dcell’s technology can be applied (academic & pharmaceutical).

In this position you will be responsible for establishing new research opportunities by understanding technical challenges of 4DCell activity and build new projects on this basis with other academic research laboratories. For this aim, you will actively look for new opportunities through meetings, conferences, and one-to-one discussions. Therefore, you can easily establish connections with researchers (Professors and PhDs) and other peers. You have an excellent ability to rapidly build an understanding of their technical and scientific challenges. You can easily apply your skills to explore the potential of 4Dcell technologies while passing a trustworthy message.

Office location: Montreuil – Croix de Chavaux / Mairie de Montreuil (Paris, East)

 

Responsibilities & deliverables

▪ Be in touch with public research labs and financing authorities. Work with researchers to explore valuable applications of 4Dcell technologies and expertise, on the topic where the control the cell microenvironment can be an advantage.

▪ Perfectly understand the field of material science applied both to 3D cell culture and in vitro models, and the challenges of this discipline in life sciences.

▪ Identify the academic KOL developing immune, hepatic, oncologic, dermatologic, and neuronal innovative in vitro models and identify synergies with 4Dcell to create breakthrough technologies

▪ Identify grants/scholarships application opportunities (e.g. H2020, ANR, BPI France)

▪ Write research and product development proposals expressing clear and logic ideas in English (or French) in full autonomy or with partner researchers

▪ Apply for the grants from different sources
