Job description

We are looking for an engineer with a strong background in physics, with a versatile profile, capable of both mechanical design and assembly design. You will work in our innovation unit, in charge of developing microfluidic setups and instruments in the framework of our European innovation projects. You will engineer new technical solutions and be open to learning in all areas within your reach.

Whether you have a lot of experience or not is not the most important thing for us, what counts for us is the mindset, curiosity, positive energy and the ability to learn.

Your missions will be the following:

  • Within our innovation team, you will work on scientific projects around microfluidics to meet the needs and specifications from the market and from our European research partners. You will be a driving force to solve all the challenges you meet in a simple, audacious and smart way.
  • You will participate in the development of future microfluidic instruments for our product range and develop microfluidic components and platforms for all scientific applications in our field.
  • You will explore all the side roads and implement all the crazy ideas that make sense to keep Elvesys at the forefront of innovation in the microfluidics sector.

Preferred experience

Required profile:

  • You have an engineering degree and a PhD related to physics or mechanics (all fields are suitable, mechatronics, robotics, electronics, mechanics, microfluidics … ) and you are ready to work on multidisciplinary projects.
  • Ideally, you have skills in fluid mechanics/microfluidics, mechanical design and, to top it all off, some knowledge of electronics or programming.
  • You are scientifically rigorous, creative and pragmatic.
  • You know how to think “outside the box”, to find simple solutions to complicated problems, you are not afraid to tackle complex issues and you know how to quickly make them your own.
  • You feel comfortable in an international environment and are confident to work independently.
  • You don’t like routine, and you can adapt quickly to changes in direction.
  • You want to do meaningful work, and you want your participation in our research projects to help change the world.

At Elvesys, we like: People of action, creative people, autonomous people, curious people, team players. People who do more than talk, people who are demanding of themselves but who take care of those around them. Those who question themselves, those who want an intense and contrasting life, those who bring pastries for the team.
