Hardware/Electrical Engineer

RiboPro is hiring several Hardware engineers to develop an innovative mRNA production and formulation system. This new-to-develop, fully-automated production system will be the next-level solution to producing mRNA-based vaccines and therapies, and is able to produce in times of emergency millions of doses in a matter of days. In non-emergency times, it will be used to produce new treatments for cancer, metabolic disease and many other diseases.
In this project, hardware and software will be developed side-by-side in rapid iterative cycles and close collaboration. The technical concepts are highly innovative and the freedom to experiment is extensive. This project is fully-funded for the next 2-3 years under the prestigious Wellcome Leap R3 program. Additional projects are available thereafter.

Erwin Wurm | Am I a House?

For the first time, the artist shows a cross-section of his work, from Narrow Furniture to One Minute Sculptures, within the walls of a historic building. Villa Constance, a former home that today houses Museum Jan Cunen, is not only a location but also part of the conversation. Because what exactly is a house?
