Translational Cell Biologist

Peace of Meat

We are expanding our team in Germany and Belgium and seek to hire a passionate translational cell biologist to help advance bioengineering innovation from the basic lab bench to the applied pilot plant.


• Design and execute innovative cell-based manipulations within a foodtech applicative context and mindset

• Cell/tissue culture techniques including isolation of stem cells and establishing of cell lines, proliferation and differentiation

• Design and validate cellular and molecular quality control markers and pilot scale-up parameters towards cultured meat production

• Define project charts, budget estimates and timelines as well as frequent reporting on intermediate situations and needed corrections

• Design and implement guidelines and standards regarding lab protocols and reports, equipment use and maintenance, GLP and GMP rules in a foodtech regulatory environment

About the candidate

• Master’s degree or PhD in human or animal cell biology and/or cell-based bioengineering as a base

• Ideally previous experience in conducting translational cell-based experiments and product-driven cell biology with attention to media and process optimization, bioreactors and bioprinters technologies, efficiency and cost considerations in a pre-industrial/ start-up environment

• Previous experience with avian or mammalian hepatocytes and adipocytes is a plus

• Objective-oriented and self-directed problem solver with a marked ability to promote the exchange of ideas and the interaction with colleagues working upstream and downstream
