Research and Development


We’re an early stage biotech start-up founded by Lionel (Ex Google) and Patrick (PhD Genetic Editing, ENS), working on the first generation of bioengineered plants to fight air pollution. We start with indoor air pollution, which is up to 5 times higher than outdoors and due to a specific type of pollutants called VOCs. We create plants that can effectively remediate these compounds in your home. Our longer term ambition is to leverage our technologies for other large scale applications such as carbon capture and storage for example. We are backed by top tier Silicon Valley and European investors and are currently based in Paris, France. 


We are looking for passionate, ambitious, rigorous and talented individuals to supercharge our R&D and join us on our mission: putting nature at the heart of product innovation to drive positive change. We’re looking for individuals who are not afraid to take on seemingly impossible challenges, humble enough to recognise when barriers are insurmountable, yet ingenious enough to find workable solutions.


We are at the beginning of a thrilling journey; with amazing growth opportunities. Joining us means being part of our world-class team and having a huge impact on our R&D and the development of our products. You will get to exercise your leadership, critical thinking, project management skills and team spirit by acquiring multiple responsibilities in an ultra fast-moving environment. You will also contribute to the exceptional working environment we are cultivating.

At Neoplants, we aim to rekindle that spark we had in our eyes when we first got into science. If you are as excited as we are about state of the art technologies, exploring uncharted scientific territories, pushing the boundaries of what is conceivable for good, if you want to transform the way people think about genetics and work on inspiring deep-tech products that have a real positive impact on the environment and people’s lives, join us and help us lead this movement.

You will interact daily with all the members of our R&D team to have a detailed understanding of our lab workstreams and propose improvement perspectives.
