Biotech innovation accelerator in Istanbul. We conduct project based research, development, innovation and technology transformation services to companies and organizations around the globe. It is powered by a community of independent researchers, engineers, business people and more. This place is a micro-settlement with garden, dorms, living, office and lab space. We need help running & maintaining the physical space but also would like to work together on the business and community as well.
The aim is to create an active environment that motivate researchers attract talent, and our team manages teams of independent researchers and projects. We have a biotech lab and office space at the settlement. We manage projects where we provide final research reports, product & process designs, business and R&D plans, financial & strategic analyses, also conduct preliminary lab work from time to time.
We don't require domain expertise, we train applicants for the work to be conducted. So if you enjoy learning about biotechnology on every level from lab bench to product, this is a unique opportunity for you.
