Project Description

abiotic stresses (lack of water, temperature stress, ph, &) are the cause of major problems preventing a profitable Agriculture development in many parts of the world. we are a r&d start-up aiming to address this problem by developing a biostimulant product helping crops to face these abiotic stress. biostimulant have a direct action on the natural Metabolism of plants and are becoming a much more interesting protection method in view of their efficiency, their price or the will to reduce the use of chemical products (fertilizing, pesticides, &) objective of the internship: biochemical synthesis, Purification, Analysis and biostimulant Formulation

your main tasks in the Laboratory: biochemical synthesis of specific compounds;
Purification using Chromatography methods;
Analysis on HPLC;
participation in the development of an optimal agronomic Formulation: mix, emulsion, and combination of different active molecules;
maintain Laboratory clean; etc. 

your profile: passionate about new developments, you have good general scientific knowledge (Biology, Physics, Mathematics &) but you re particularly interested in Chemistry and synthesis of new compounds. fast learner, you are able to work independently in the Laboratory and focus on concrete progress, in order to participate actively in a fast growing start-up.
