Vice President of IP

Lead In a Company Where IP is Interwoven into Business & Success

This is an opportunity to join a leading late-stage biopharmaceutical company at the forefront of developing therapeutic and diagnostic solutions, to address high unmet patient needs in rare and serious liver diseases. With headquarters in Lille, and offices in Paris (France), Zurich (Switzerland) and Cambridge (US), you will join an internationally successful company with more than 20 years of research and development expertise, boasting a growing and diversified pipeline of innovative therapeutic and diagnostic solutions.

In essence, you will:

  • Join a company where IP is identified as a vital asset, valued across all levels of the organization. This is a chance to seize great responsibility with the rare advantage of implementing decisions rapidly via a direct channel to the CSO and CEO.
  • With various projects at exciting phases of implementation, you will be key in developing the strategy to commercialize and protect these discoveries worldwide. As this is a new area of discovery and focus, it is likely that litigation will also be an upcoming activity facing the business – your expertise in this area will be highly valued as the company navigates this new journey.
  • Be part of the exciting future and expansion within GENFIT. Your expertise in the field of IP collaboration and valorisation will be vital to the ongoing progress of late-stage therapeutic developments.

To succeed in this position, you will have an academic background in Pharmacy or a related scientific discipline. As a qualified European Patent Attorney (or similar) your knowledge of the EPO and USPTO demonstrate the requisite years’ of experience required for a position of this level. Your experience working for a leading biotechnology or pharmaceutical organization at a leadership level have equipped you with full IP life-cycle management experience with particular knowledge of post-grant, contentious and transactional matters.
