Experience in starting or running a business would be fantastic, as that will show you understand and embrace the challenges in facilitating growth, but any experience in establishing
and seeing-through a task with clear commercial relevance will be of great benefit to your application. A proven track-record in securing funds would also help.
You should also not be afraid of getting your hands dirty, undoubtedly there will be days when routine laboratory work will be required, similarly there will be a need to focus with
steely determination on our KPIs and securing the required funding. We are looking for someone that leads by example and whose activities will be an inspiration for existing and future employees.
As for the technical stuff, experience with bio-polymers and the use of enzymes would be great and the applicant should have a PhD in these, or similarly-relevant, areas.
