Recherche et Développement

DEINOVE (Euronext Growth Paris: ALDEI) is a French biotechnology company pioneering the exploration of a new domain of life, unexplored at 99.9%: the “microbial dark matter”. By revealing the metabolic potential of rare bacteria or still classified as uncultivable, it tackles a global health and economic challenge: antimicrobial resistance. The new therapies discovered and developed by DEINOVE target superbugs (microbes that have become resistant to one or more antimicrobials) that cause life-threatening infections which are now spreading at high speed.

Poste et missions

You will be part of the Microfluidic unit at DEINOVE. The main missions of the unit are to develop various droplet-based screening tools. In this context, you will have to build a droplet based microfluidic station. Then you will develop and perform high throughput phenotypic sorting of environmental microorganisms producing active natural products. In this context, we are looking for an enthusiastic microfluidics researcher specialized in droplet microfluidic to strengthen the microfluidics team.

Under supervision of the head of department you will:
· Build and validate a droplet microfluidic station for screening and sorting environmental microorganisms for the production of natural active products.
· Develop and conduct screening, sorting and isolation of environmental microorganisms by collaborating with Biodiversity Farming, Fermentation Engineering and Synthetic Biology teams at DEINOVE.
· Develop and improve “in drop” biological analyzes for the discovery of active natural products.
