Quantum Sensing Engineer

Company description

Chipiron was founded in 2020 by Evan Kervella, engineer & entrepreneur, and Dimitri Labat, Ph.D. in condensed matter physics.
Our mission is to make MRI accessible to all.
We started our journey a year and a half ago and just go to start experimenting in the lab this summer.

We have successfully fundraised this Spring and are well accompanied:

  • Medical: great medical board, partner with different CHU and the Foundation Rothschild, supported by the French Society of Radiology...
  • Physics: we work with some of the biggest KOL in science, notably in ESPCI and Paris 7.
  • Entrepreneurship: supported by the most prestigious organization in France: Entrepreneur First, Agoranov, WILCO, PC'Up...

We’re a team of seven physicists and are looking for (at least) two more to reach our goal of delivering our first images by October 2022.
