Deliverables: The end result of this internship will be two deliverables. The first deliverable is a database that describes all of the companies selling plant-based meat, dairy, or eggs in these countries including information about their locations, products, sales, and distribution. The second deliverable is a summary of the plant-based meat, dairy, and egg industry in each country.

Learning Objectives: The primary learning objective is for the intern to develop expertise in current state of the plant-based meat, dairy, and egg industries in a specific country and opportunities for growth. They will also learn best practices in information management and sharing.

Compensation: This internship is unpaid.

International Intern: Science Opportunities

GFI International Engagement Department Internship

International Science Opportunities

 

Primary GFI Mentor: Nicole Roth, Director of International Engagement

Duration: Total project expectation: 40 hours. More work available if needed.

Start date: Flexible.

Purpose: There are two purposes of this internship.

First, the interns will gather information about research institutions, academic researchers, and companies conducting work in adjacent research areas (e.g. cell therapy company) who are currently using technologies that are applicable to plant-based and clean meat research or food technology. Once we know who these researchers and institutions are, we can reach out to them to let them know how their current expertise could be helpful for advancing the research of plant-based and clean meat. GFI may also be able to partner with them to advance clean meat and plant-based meat research in their country.

Second, the interns will gather information about scientific conferences and opportunities in their countries. Once we have this information, we can encourage scientists to speak about or submit research papers on clean meat and plant-based meat technology and developments.

Interns may pick their country of choice assuming it has not already been chosen by another intern.

Activities: The main activities of this internship include internet and database research to locate the needed information, followed by development of (1) a institution and researcher database and (2) a scientific conference database.

Examples of areas of expertise to search:

  • Bioengineering / Biomedical engineering
  • Chemical engineering
  • Biological sciences
  • Cellular biology
  • Developmental biology
  • Molecular biology
  • Stem cell biology
  • Tissue engineering
  • Bioprocess engineering
  • Food science and nutrition
  • Biochemistry / chemistry
  • Plant science / plant biology / plant engineering
  • Sociology / environmental science / public health (food behavior and other food-related studies)

Deliverables: The end result of this internship will be (1) a database listing institutions, academic researchers, and companies who are currently using technologies that are applicable to plant-based and clean meat research or food technology and (2) a database listing conference opportunities. We would also like any recommendations from the interns on which academic institutions or research facilities are well respected in their countries and areas of expertise.

Learning Objectives: The primary learning objective is for the intern to develop expertise in the transferability of scientific areas of expertise to plant-based and clean-meat research and an understanding of the scientific market and opportunities in a specific country. They will also learn best practices in information management and sharing.

 

This internship is an unpaid volunteer position.

Legal Intern: Clean Meat Regulation Abroad

GFI Policy Department Internship: 

Clean Meat Regulation Abroad

 

Primary GFI Mentor: Jessica Almy

Duration: 10-20 hours per week for 8-10 weeks

Start date: Rolling

Purpose: The purpose of this internship will be to support the work of GFI’s Policy Department to promote a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply through regulatory and legislative reform. Specifically, we are looking for legal help (from interns or fellows) to conduct research into regulatory pathways for clean meat in countries outside of the United States.

Activities: The main activities of this internship are: 1) legal research into food regulation in a specific jurisdiction outside of the United States; and 2) analysis of how clean meat could be brought to market under the regulatory framework that currently exists in that jurisdiction.

Deliverables: The end result of this internship will be a legal research memorandum addressing the specific steps that producers should take to get approval to bring clean meat to market. Where the law is unclear or multiple regulatory pathways are available to clean meat producers, the memorandum should provide a compelling analysis of what the best pathway forward would be.

Learning Objectives: The primary learning objective is for the intern or fellow to develop expertise in researching how food is regulated in a country outside of the United States and analyzing a novel question of law.

Compensation: This position is unpaid.

How to apply: Fill out the web form below. Attach a resume and cover letter. In your cover letter, please include responses to the following questions:

  1. Why do you want to work on this particular project?
  2. What do you think will be the most challenging part of this project?
  3. What is your familiarity with legal systems outside of the United States?
  4. Do you have any additional experience or coursework that you believe will be helpful (e.g., substantial legal research projects, or coursework in administrative law, food law, or statutory interpretation)?
