Biology internship

Join the rollercoaster ride

At the current state of Respyre, biologists are key to understand the dynamics of the growth of mosses. We need to ever expand our knowledge on the way mosses can be stored, reproduced, and grown vertically. To expand our knowledge, we highly prioritize the addition of a biologist to the team.

Previous research and tests have reached the following milestones:

  • In-house moss growing protocol.
  • Moss essential species inventory.
  • Development of moss compatible coating.

Your research should aim to reach/finalize the following milestones:

  • Orientation/location dependent moss growing strategy.
  • Ecosystems services quantification.
  • Substrate optimization for indoor moss growing.
  • Outdoor moss growing strategy.
By doing this research you are contributing to the first product launch of Respyre. You’ll be working in a team of enthusiastic young people with the skills needed to provide you with guidance on an entrepreneurial, educational and personal level.

Must haves

  • Assertive and innovative working ethics.
  • Access to efficient way of transporting: car or public transport.

Nice to haves

  • Experience in cultivation of plants.
  • Ambition to stay at the company after the research.

Why join Respyre

By working on the biology behind our first products, you will have a unique opportunity to make a significant impact on sustainable urban design and contribute to reshaping urban landscapes with nature's touch. As a biology student at Respyre you'll be part of a passionate team dedicated to creating a greener and more sustainable future for cities.
