  • 💪 work on exciting, challenging and scientifically complex projects


At the beginning of the employment, you will undergo intensive training covering subjects including patent law, search methodologies, use of search platforms and other necessary skills.

You will start by analysing the invention that is the subject of the project. The project might be about a ground-breaking cancer treatment, plastics used to produce bottle caps or a cosmetic formulation.

You will develop a search strategy based on your understanding of the project and expertise in the subject field.

Using various search platforms, you will then proceed to execute the strategy. At this point, your ability to adapt and think critically will kick in.  

You will constantly adjust and re-evaluate your search strategy to deliver the most accurate research.

At the end of the project, you will collate your findings into a clear and concise report as per customer needs. 

Throughout the whole process, you will have the support of Laudea’s experience and resources.


You hold a Ph.D. degree in chemistry (organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, medicinal chemistry). 

You have knowledge of chemical structure drawing methodologies.

You are fluent in English, written and spoken. Fluency in German is a plus. 

You will work on projects that last one day or a few weeks. Time management skills will be crucial to the successful and timely execution of these projects. 

Patents can - and often are - complex and intentionally obfuscated. You must possess strong analytical skills to understand and interpret them.

The diversity of topics is valuable for you.

You are passionate about gaining knowledge and analysing.


We are free to work remotely from wherever we choose. We only require availability during Central European business hours in a sustainable manner.

We look for intelligent individuals with determination and high work standards. We do so because we trust that you will deliver regardless of your location or working hours. We value transparency. We trust our people.

Everybody deserves a three-day weekend! At Laudea, we believe in work-life balance, and these are not just empty words. Studies have shown that a four-day workweek increases focus and creativity and, at the same time, employee happiness. You will have more time for your hobbies. Win-win.

In this remote environment, you will have our full support. Equipped with software and hardware and access to seamless video conferencing, you can reach your colleagues without a hassle. The only thing you need is a high-speed and reliable Internet connection.

Performing IP research and analysis is challenging, and doing it remotely requires a particular type of person and passion. If this unique challenge appeals to you, I’d love to talk to you! If you are interested, please send your resume in PDF format to
