    - high-speed production of microalgal biomass from a "culture collection" of several thousand original organisms
    - natural product chemistry intended to form the purified extracts and fractions of the biomass produced into sheet form.

A third centre concerning biological screening of the fractions and extracts produced will be opened in 2009 at the current organisation.
As part of a multidisciplinary team of engineers and doctors of biology and chemistry, the person recruited will initially work in close association with the Ecole Centrale de Paris process engineering laboratory.  He/she must become familiar with culturing photosynthetic microorganisms and take part in formatting the results of research carried out on a pilot reactor and intended to optimise cultures through the production of models.

He/she will also take part is setting up the company's screening centre from the second half of 2009.

The post-doctoral recruit must have technical experience in:

    - Microbiology
    - Molecular biology
    - Cell physiology
    - Fermentation
    - Purification of biomolecules

His or her personal qualities will be appropriate for:

- working in a multidisciplinary environment
- joining/constructing and maintaining a network within an international scientific community
- working in an organized fashion autonomously in a developing structure
