COMPUTATIONAL ARCHITECT/DESIGNER

At Interstellar Lab, We imagine, We Design, We Make.

As a Computational Architect, you will join the architecture and construction team to work on EBIOS prototypes, modules and stations. 

You want to contribute to building the next generation of environmental architectural solutions for Earth as well as advancing our path towards space exploration. You want to be part of a cross-disciplinary, dynamic and innovative team of talented individuals sourced from across the globe.

This is a fantastic opportunity for forward-thinking and ambitious designers and builders who are passionate about pushing the limits of what design can achieve and curious about cutting-edge approaches in a wide range of fields such as biology, AI and material sciences.
