Roslin Tech is an ambitious, cutting‐edge biotech company focused on food and agriculture. Our mission to advance disruptive biotechnologies to improve how we produce proteins. We envision a world where everyone has access to affordable, nutritious, and responsibly produced protein.
The shift towards cultivated meat is accelerating, and it all starts with the cells. Our work as a cell line provider, using ground-breaking technology, is unique in the industry. Our Animal Cells play a key role in bringing the future of cultivated meat closer to reality.
Our offices and labs are based at the Roslin Innovation Centre in Edinburgh. To complement our own internal capabilities, we have privileged access to experts and intellectual property from the world-famous Roslin Institute, which is co-located on the Easter Bush Campus. Together with our partners, we commercialise our cells and make protein production more sustainable.
To make cultivated meat, cells need to grow in culture at scale. This is a new and innovative area where we strive to be global leaders. This is an exciting, new opportunity for a Bioengineer to join our Animal Cells unit, to help move us closer to our vision for an alternative protein future.
About The Role
We are looking for a Bioengineer to join our Ruminant Cells development team, based at the Roslin Innovation Centre.
The Animal Cells unit develops bespoke cell lines for cultivated meat production. Our team are at the forefront of animal stem cell technologies, having derived induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from a range of domestic animal species. We are currently expanding our species coverage for the cultivated meat industry.
You will be key to developing the technologies and processes required for cell culture scale-up and bioprocessing of our livestock cell lines for cellular agriculture. This will involve designing and conducting experiments in bioreactors, which are key to ensuring scale up durability for our cells in cultivated meat.
What we’re looking for:
This role is for a fixed term full-time position available for an initial 18-month period, with further extension intended. We will offer a competitive and attractive compensation package.
For enquiries, please contact Professor Jacqui Matthews (email@example.com). To apply, please send a CV and cover letter explaining why you have applied for the post to firstname.lastname@example.org.
