Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) and Partner for a Longevity Company Builder in Zurich/Zug (Switzerland)
Maximon is a longevity company builder based in Zurich/Zug with the vision to become a leading player in the field of longevity and healthy lifespan by empowering entrepreneurs to build impactful, science-based and scalable companies providing healthy aging and rejuvenation solutions. Maximon provides entrepreneurs with substantial funding and a strong, global network of investors and health-tech entrepreneurs. As an industry-specific company builder with a team of experienced experts and outstanding entrepreneurs, Maximon enables founders to focus on executing business ideas by also giving them access to top talent, integrated services, best-practice processes and industry expertise.
What our Chief Science Officer has to do:
As our Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) you are the head of scientific research operations at our longevity company builder and our ventures performing significant scientific research projects. You are responsible for envisioning and developing research capabilities and validating the utility of research products. You independently navigate and manage your own projects and thrive in fast-paced working environments. You will be working closely with the founders of Maximon to determine research and development strategies. You will be involved in corporate business initiatives, including financial and strategic campaigns, key collaborations and partnerships.
The person we are looking for:
We look for a scientist with a strong academic background in the fields of cellular or molecular biology (ideally with a PhD focusing on aging, longevity, or increasing health and life spans). Additional industry-specific experience at a consultancy or incubator would be an add-on but not a must. Whether at university or on the job, you are always among the top performers of your peer group. As an entrepreneurial minded scientist you are flexible and you perform well under pressure. You have a result-oriented working style and strong analytical and conceptual skills. Your passion for longevity and inner drive to succeed round off your profile. We believe that we are offering a once in a lifetime opportunity and that's why we will not compromise on the candidate.
With us as a strong partner by your side:
As our Chief Science Officer you are building Maximon together with us from day one. You profit from working with three successful and well-known serial entrepreneurs who have co-founded over 20 companies, and have raised more than CHF 2 billion. On top of that you will cooperate with the brightest (researcher) minds within longevity, who will also serve as board and team members within our company. As a crucial part of our organization you enjoy a very attractive equity package and a competitive salary.
We are looking forward to getting to know you!
