Careers

Senior Consultant Life Sciences & Health

Location: Utrecht, Netherlands

Are you passionate about life sciences and health technologies, and do you offer helicopter views across markets and scientific fields? We certainly do, and need some extra hands. That is why we are looking for you, creative problem-solver, excellent writer, advisor and facilitator!

What will you do as a Senior Consultant?

You have insight in state-of-the-art technologies and how to facilitate the commercialization process of these technologies. You are capable of, independently, managing large consortia taking into account different stakeholder perspectives. You are, just like us, dedicated to deliver high quality products and make a difference.

Your day at ttopstart looks like this:

  • A cup of coffee first of course. Then you start the working day with a short energetic update with your small team of consultants
  • You continue preparing the framework for the consortium meeting later this week  
  • You have a call with a potential client and aim to unlock the true potential of their exciting (bio)medical idea. Following the call, you define a strategic funding roadmap.
  • You have lunch with your colleagues and, in addition to discussing the weather and weekend plans, instigate a lively discussion on the future of AI in healthcare.
  • You sit down with one of your team mates to refine the questions that should guide his market intelligence report. In this way, you help the client make smart and substantiated choices to get their innovation to the market faster and better.
  • You continue developing the impact section of an upcoming Horizon proposal and send it out for review. By posing the right questions you aim to solicit high-quality input from 10 partners.   
  • At the end of the day, you have delivered new insights and ideas to your clients to ensure innovations are implemented faster and better, and research teams and businesses thrive.

You also get to:

  • Work on a great variety of innovative projects in Europe;
  • Be in a challenging, entrepreneurial and international environment;
  • Collaborate in an ambitious and creative team, with colleagues always ready to support, brainstorm or socialize;
  • Accelerate ideas and innovations that deliver better health and care;
  • Participate in training and coaching
  • Be in an office with the most amazing 360° view of Utrecht you have ever seen
  • Enjoy Friday vrijmibo drinks with your colleagues and regular dinners and events organized.

What are you like?

  • You are driven by a desire to make a positive impact on the life sciences and health sector and are passionate about biomedical innovation.
  • You have 3-6 years of grant writing experience (FP7, H2020), this is a prerequisite;
  • You have in-depth knowledge of national and international funding schemes (e.g. H2020, NWO, ZonMw);
  • You have affinity for commercialization of science and innovation;
  • You preferably have a PhD degree in life sciences, medtech or related;
  • You have experience in multi-stakeholder collaboration and managing teams (internal and external);
  • You have a strong ability to communicate in English, both verbally and in writing;
  • You have consulting skills such as flexibility in communication, expectation management and customer focus;
  • Skills to balance time, efficiency, effort, quality and innovation.
