Industrial animal agriculture is at the root of many of the most pressing global issues of our time, from climate change and global hunger to increased disease risk and poor animal welfare.
The Good Food Institute Europe (GFI Europe) is at the forefront of the movement to use food technology to replace the products of industrial animal agriculture with plant-based, fermentation-derived and cultivated meat, eggs, dairy, and seafood. Please check out our U.S. affiliate’s website (gfi.org) and read the 2019 Year in Review (gfi.org/2019, particularly pages 8-9, which focus on our Science and Technology work), to find out more about who we are and what we do.
We are at an exciting stage in our growth and are looking for a Science and Technology (SciTech) Manager to join our team. For more information about this new role, please take a look at the job brochure here.
How You Will Make a Difference
We need the best scientists in Europe to be engaged in plant-based, cultivated, and fermentation-derived protein research and development.
In this role, you will lead the creation and delivery of a SciTech strategy and function for GFI Europe. You will engage with scientists, science media, and policymakers to catalyse the alternative proteins sector through three principal activities: inspiring more scientists to work on alternative proteins, mobilising research funding, and analysing the sector.
As the first Science and Technology hire in our growing European team, you will help radically transform the food system by:
