Our research and development team is growing fast, and their analytical needs are getting too substantial to keep handling these in the current team structure. As we are preparing for launch and the corresponding food safety and quality checks, we are looking for a highly talented manager to build this cross-functional analytical team and grow it as our business evolves.
Meatable is in the middle of two worlds; while our day to day work is mostly focused on cellular biology (and thus most of our immediate analytical needs are in e.g. mammalian cell culture and cell-based assays, and expertise in flow cytometry, qPCR, microscopy and imaging analysis), we are effectively in the innovative food business, and thus require assays, quality checks and traceability that are required to get our products approved. Therefore, we are looking for somebody who understands both worlds we are active in. For example a candidate with an educational background and a couple of years research experience in a (cellular) biological or biomedical subject to really understand our researchers and for hands-on experience with their analytical methods, who shifted careers to the food business in an analytical manager role, so that he/she also understands the requirements to get a food product approved.
Our preferred candidate is currently/has been a lead or manager of an analytical team. Somebody who understands the types of analytics we need now and in the future, and is able to build this team – the people, protocols, methods. We are looking for somebody who brings extensive knowledge from earlier analytical (or even certified) lab experience, but is flexible enough to translate this knowledge into specific needs that fit with the phase Meatable is currently in, and will be in in the future.
