Who we are:
The Scientific Foresight department aims to provide analytical insights and a vision for future mid to long-term (3-5 year) key technology trends that could have a dramatic and disruptive impact on our knowledge and understanding of skin and hair science but also on the business of creating, marketing and selling cosmetic products. Scientific Foresight aims to provide a conduit for early adoption of disruptive technologies into the R&I group, enabling L’Oréal to maintain its leadership position in the Cosmetics industry.
The Scientific Foresight Scientist position will be based in New Jersey, with a responsibility of surveying the science and technology environment predominantly in North America but with a sensitivity to evolutions in the global scientific-tech community.
What we’ll do together:
As a Scientific Foresight Scientist, you will identify disruptive and emerging technology and scientific trends relevant to L’Oreal R&I (Research & Innovation) challenges and business and will be responsible for a precise analysis of the potential of the technology or the scientific field, in sharing this information with internal scientific departments in order to help with the evaluation and adoption/selection of the innovative technology. This role will combine your ability to appreciate advances in cutting edge technology in the biological, chemical and physical sciences and an ability to analyze how these advances could impact L’Oreal’s market position. The analysis and reports from the Scientific Foresight team will be used by senior management in order to aid in strategic decision making for adoption of new technologies and focus areas.
A solid understanding of industry dynamics (biotech, medtech, etc), R&D and key public entities and players in North America and/or experience in sourcing, evaluating and investing in technology startup companies will be significant added advantages.
In addition to strong scientific and analytical abilities, we need your strong entrepreneurial spirit, team player attitude and ability to effectively handle organizational complexity with strong persuasive verbal and written communication skills.
