The Good Food Institute (GFI) is on the forefront of the movement to use food technology and markets to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change and global hunger to antibiotic efficacy and the exploitation of billions of animals annually. GFI’s Senior Scientists’ in-depth research will expand the frontiers of plant-based and "clean" meat, milk, and egg technologies until they render factory farming obsolete.
How You Will Make a Difference
GFI’s Senior Scientists help create a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply by catalyzing and accelerating R&D for more and better plant-based and clean meat, empowering the scientific community, and educating the public. . Working with key academic, nonprofit, and industry stakeholders, GFI’s Senior Scientists coordinate scientific research to ensure that plant-based and cultured technologies dominate the marketplace as quickly as possible by:
Who We’re Looking For
We are seeking smart, thoughtful, and creative self-starters who want to push back against climate change, transform industrial animal agriculture, and develop healthy and humane foods that are accessible to everyone.
Senior Scientists must have exceptional writing and public speaking skills, experience analyzing scientific literature, a proven track record in communicating science to lay professionals, and enthusiasm for GFI’s mission. They will need sound judgment in decision making, including managing priorities and meeting competing deadlines. You will enjoy a high level of autonomy in this role and must be self-motivated, work well both independently and in concert with a larger group, and be comfortable working with a rapidly evolving and growing team.
We are considering candidates with a master’s degree or higher (Ph.D. preferred) in a relevant scientific field (e.g. food science, biology, chemistry, engineering). A background in food science or mechanical engineering is favored. Familiarity with or experience working with plant-based or clean meat/milk/egg companies is a strong plus.
