Bioengineer

New Age Meats is a Berkeley-based cultivated meat company.

We create delicious meat made from animal cells instead of animal slaughter — healthier for humans, animals, and the Earth.

We have an immediate need for a multifaceted bioengineer with a strong drive to improve the world. You will support the bioprocessing R&D activities of the bioengineering department to validate methods, materials, and/or hardware to refine the bioprocess for cultivated meat. You will apply techniques and experiences from other fields (cell therapy, regenerative medicine, biologics manufacturing) to shape the future of food and health.

 

Duties include:
  • Feeding and passaging mammalian reactor cultures – weekends are required
  • Validating bioprocess methods, reagents, or hardware
  • Evaluating microcarrier formulations
  • Optimizing standard molecular and cell biology analytical techniques
  • Rigorously recording and analyzing data
Required Experience:
  • MSc with 2 years of industry experience (or BSc/BEng with 4 years) in tissue engineering, material science, or biomedical engineering
  • Mammalian reactor culture, preferably stem cells
  • Experimental design and analysis
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to rapidly troubleshoot biology, hardware, and software
  • Comfort with a fast-paced start-up environment and remote communication
  • Must be authorized to work in the US
Ideal Experience:
  • Industry experience operating bioreactors for cell therapy
  • Tissue engineering with a wide variety of animal-origin free materials
  • Assay development
  • Analysis with ImageJ, Minitab, R, JMP, or other
  • Programming in Python or C
  • Video production with DaVinci Resolve (brownie points for this one)
