You will conduct several missions:
- Monitor the sample conformity of samples (GC, GC-MS et HPLC, HPLC-MS analysis) and prepare them for the biologist team of Immunosearch and IPMC,
- Contribute to building databases, that is, human, animal, in vitro test, to be used afterwards by AI,
- Develop a database of ingredients that will be used in this project, including their chemical functional groups and risks,
- Contribute to the work of « Read across » on chemically defined ingredients and on natural extracts


The project is being carried out within the framework of the NewgenTOXiv project (response to BPI's AAP Innov) led by the company Immunosearch in partnership with the company MyData Model and three Université Côte d'Azur laboratories (IPMC, I3S and ICN).

You will be supervised by Prof. X. Fernandez (group MVBV, ICN) and will bring your expertise in chemistry to the project team. According to your scientific skills, you will also be able to get involved in other research projects of the team.


You own a phD specialized in organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, formulation, or flavour, fragrance or cosmetics chemistry, with a first experience in database treatment. Experience in biology (toxicology) or AI would be a plus.
- You have solid theoretical and experimental skills in organic chemistry, as well as in the following analytical chemistry techniques: GC, GC/MS, HPLC-DAD-ELSD, HPLC/MS, HPLC/MS-MS, HPTLC,
- You have a first experience in the development of databases et structure/activity relationships
- You are dynamic, independent, able to manage several tasks in parallel, and a real taste for multidisciplinary subjects,
- You have skills in project management
- You have writing skills in order to write experimental protocols, scientific papers, etc. in french and english.
- You know how to use Microsoft word, excel, powerpoint or equivalents. Experience in specific softwares such as Chemstation, Mnova, SoftMaxPro, Prism, etc. would be a plus

Work Context

MVBV research team form the « Institut de Chimie de Nice », at the University Côte d'Azur, managed by Pr X. Fernandez, is specialized in chemistry of flavour, fragrance and cosmetics. With a strong experience in the study of natural ingredients and in the formulation of cosmetics as well as flavour and fragrance compositions, MVBV is collaborating to NewgenTOXIC project, carried by Immunosearch company, in order to contribute to the development of a genomic toxicology sector that would include artificial intelligence.

General objectives of this project are:

1 – Validate last tests developed by ImmunoSearch from a regulation point of view
2 – Develop a management tool for topic toxicology risk, by combining toxicogenomics and AI.
3 – Finalise the ongoing development of an invitro test allowing the identification of non-genotoxic carcinogenic substances (NGTxC).
