iPSC Scientist



About the role

As our iPSC Scientist you will lead the generation, characterization and banking of iPSC lines using state of the art techniques.

As a key member of our Cell Line Development team, you will be responsible for the generation and characterization of iPSC lines from different species (porcine, bovine and more!). You will help the team to establish a workflow for the derivation of iPSC and you will be responsible for the standardization and implementation of relevant SOPs for the establishment of Research and Development Cell Banks according to GLP/GMP criteria.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person, that has experience working with different cell lines derived from different pluripotent states (naive to primed). He or she understands the pluripotency network (for example, has worked with both human and mouse pluripotent cell lines) and the signalling associated with it, and has developed/optimized media formulations (naive versus primed).

Our cell lines are the core of Meatable’s R&D and therefore you will be part of an exciting multidisciplinary team to whom you will provide continuous scientific support. You will have the chance to work directly with every other team, from bioreactors and upscaling to tissue engineering and media formulation.


  • PhD or 4+ years of similar relevant experience in Stem Cell Biology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Developmental Biology or similar fields. Directly involved with the development of iPSC cell lines is considered an advantage.
  • Proven expertise in developing pluripotent stem cell approaches, applications to unique biological problems, profiling, and assay development.
  • Deep knowledge of pluripotent stem cell culture, pluripotency and cell signalling within different species.
  • Experience with different reprogramming techniques and state of the art techniques.
  • Experience with NGS, RNA-seq analysis and other bioinformatic tools is considered an advantage.
  • Experience with the development of Cell Banks in a GMP setting is a plus.
  • Ability to manage a small group of bench scientists to support iPSC derivation, characterization, differentiation, and QC/QA.
