Job description

Founded in 1998, the Swiss Biotech Association represents the interests of the Swiss biotech industry. To support its members in a competitive market, the Swiss Biotech Association works to secure favorable framework conditions and facilitate access to talents, novel technologies, and financial resources. To strengthen and promote the Swiss biotech industry, the Swiss Biotech Association collaborates with numerous partners and life science clusters globally under the brand Swiss Biotech™.

As the Swiss biotech hub is growing rapidly, we are strengthening our presence in the Northwestern part of Switzerland to expand our network with local partners and to help connect biotech companies in this region nationally and internationally.

To represent the Swiss Biotech Association in this important region, we are looking for an independent, entrepreneurial, and dedicated team member who is self-reliant, committed to support the Swiss biotech stakeholders, and loves to contribute to a national team.

The mandate “Liaison Basel/Northwest Switzerland” will focus on leveraging our different Swiss Biotech platforms, the Swiss Biotech Directory, our venture platform, the Swiss Biotech Day to the benefit of the biotech companies and investors in your region. In this role, you will also sustain and expand our collaboration with regional partners, such as Basel Area Business & Innovation, Baselaunch, HKBB, SIP Basel Area, AWA Basel, Economy BL, BioValley Basel, University of Basel, FHNW, Academic and Research Institutions, PSI and other partners with the objective to identify regional strengths and opportunities.

We are looking for a colleague who is resident and firmly embedded in the Basel Area and familiar with the biotech industry and its partners. You are fluent in English (French and German are an additional asset), and your working style is precise, efficient, and effective. While you represent the Swiss Biotech Association in this region, the mandate also includes administrative tasks, such as the savvy handling of our customer relationship management system. We welcome a team member who can think “out of the box” and at the same time aligns his/her activities with the overall strategy of our association.

If this role fits your skills and personal vision, we look forward to getting to know you.
