Do you want to be part of ELDICO’s success story?

Join us as hands-on marketing professional and visionary storyteller and help to bring a disruptive technology to the market.

Last year, Dr. Gustavo Santiso-Quinones, Dr. Gunther Steinfeld, Dr. Eric Hovestreydt and Nils Gebhardt together founded the start-up company ELDICO Scientific. ELDICO stands for the Electron Diffraction Company — electron diffraction is an innovative method of investigating the atomic structure of molecules. It emerged from a groundbreaking scientific publication on electron diffraction, which was nominated as Breakthrough of the Year by SCIENCE magazine in 2018. Electron diffraction and the electron diffractometer constitute a disruptive technology that will fundamentally change the way research is conducted at the nano-crystalline level. This will have a major impact in the field of science as well as in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, chemical and advanced materials industries.

ELDICO is bringing a disruptive innovation to market

Since its incorporation, ELDICO has gone through a steep starting phase, already causing quite a stir in the science community and on the market. Not only were we successful in a number of start-up competitions, but with a successful seed funding round last month, ELDICO now has the means to develop even faster. While product development is in full swing, it is now essential to start  market development and boost sales. For this reason, we are now looking for support — someone who will tell the exciting story of this disruptive technology to a global audience.  If you are hands-on marketing professional and a visionary storyteller, you should apply.

So far, our core team consists of the four founders. A wider team of engineers, scientists and technical specialists is working remotely with six suppliers in four European countries. The small core team with its low hierarchy levels will allow you to bring your creative ideas directly to life. To be honest, we do not work 9 to 5: a start-up environment is challenging and needs quite a lot of commitment. Proactive pioneers will thus find a multifaceted field of activity with high market orientation in an international scientific and start-up environment.

Working in a start-up offers lots of opportunities  

This position will give you the chance to really make a difference; your ideas will have a direct influence on the future success of ELDICO. Nils Gebhardt, co-founder of ELDICO, is CFO and Marketing Director. Before co-founding ELDICO, he was Managing Director of Park Innovaare, an innovation park next to the famous Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI);  he has been working with start-ups for quite some time. "Supporting new start-ups was exciting. But developing a start-up myself is even better — there’s no comparison. It was the best career decision I have ever made", says the entrepreneur.

If this challenge appeals to you as much as it still does to the four founders every single day, do not hesitate to apply. For more information about the position, please check out our job advertisement.

ELDICO Scientific, The Electron Diffraction Company, is a Swiss hardware company founded 2019 and is located in Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), one of the world's leading research centers for natural and engineering sciences. ELDICO develops, produces and sells electron diffractometers for the analysis of solid compounds enabling industrial and scientific researchers to characterise hitherto unmeasurable nano-crystalline systems. So far conventional methods (X-ray) fail, because they require bigger crystal sizes, which are often difficult or even impossible to produce. With support of the Nano Argovia Programme and the Swiss Nanosience Insitute (SNI) the proof-of-concept was achieved in 2018 (ETH Zurich, C-CINA Basel) on scientifically and industrially relevant samples.
