Biomimetic Connections, Inc., a California-based start-up, has established
itself as the first firm dedicated to advancing the role of biomimetics in
serving material sciences, optical, acoustical, mechanical, and systems and
control engineering. Our mission is to provide clients in these areas with
an efficient and effective means for exploring and acquiring 'biology-based
guidance' in addressing their engineering and product design requirements.
Biomimetic Connections (BC) is seeking a Senior Director of Business
Development and Project Management / Acoustical Engineering. The position
requires establishing scientific 'assessment and monitoring' agreements, and
establishing and overseeing project contracts with corporate, academic, and
government clients. The position also involves promoting BC's corporate
capabilities. Assessment and monitoring contracts involve identifying
research developments in bioacoustics having potential value to clients.
Project management contracts involve matching a client's requirements with
relevant biological and affiliated expertise, and subsequently linking and
managing off-site cross-disciplinary teams through project completion.
Meeting these requirements involves establishing close relationships with
acoustic technology/engineering companies, research centers, institutes and
working groups within commercial societies and associations. Identifying
and engaging biological and affiliated expertise requires similar close
associations with biologists, biology societies and associations, in
addition to active participation in biology conferences.
