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 French speaking part of Switzerland to expand our network with local partners and to help connect biotech companies in the Suisse Romande nationally and internationally.

In this role, you will expand our collaboration with regional partners, such as BioAlps, Biopole, BioArk, Campus Biotech, EPFL, UniL, Fongit, Innovaud with the objective to identify regional strengths and opportunities. The mandate “Liaison Romandie” also comprises the prospect to leverage our Swiss Biotech Ventures platform, the Swiss Biotech Directory, the Swiss Biotech Day and more to the benefit of the biotech companies and investors in your region.

We are looking for a colleague who is resident and firmly embedded in the Romandie and familiar with the biotech industry and its partners. You are fluent in English and French, and your working style is precise, efficient, and effective. While you represent the Swiss Biotech Association in the Romandie, 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.
