Internship in Biochemistry / Chemistry
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.
Fyteko is 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;
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.
Time and Location of the internship:
BLSI Incubator, 1200 Bruxelles
Meetings or travels in other parts of Belgium are to be expected
Internship starting as soon as possible , for a minimum of 2 months
Please send through your CV with a covering letter.
