Working at Ivy Farm, you’ll be helping transform how the world eats for the better. You’ll be contributing to a sustainable meat company, grounded in breakthrough cell technology and founded on the belief that science can improve our planet. Right now, we’re on the lookout for more brilliant people to join our ‘growing’ team.
You’ll love asking ‘what if’, love animals and have time for the odd nerdy joke (see previous sentence for reference).
In return, we offer progressive benefits, a culture built on kindness, and the promise that you’ll never run out of interesting things to say at a dinner party.
As the Director of Biology you will be leading the Biology team. Your responsibilities include the development of tissue engineering solutions for the production of skeletal muscle and adipocytes from stem cells plus the implementation of cost reduction initiatives related to cell culture.
As the Culture Medium Team Leader your primary focus is to develop culture medium formulations using high-throughput technology towards animal component free, low cost, large-scale and reproducible manufacture of cultivated meat. You will work closely with the other R&D teams to optimise protocols and deliver our company-wide milestones.
With a Masters or PhD in Computing, Engineering, Life Sciences or a relevant field, you’ll have experience in establishing and operating automation platforms. Preferably in related industries and roles such as in pharmaceuticals and research. As Automation Scientist, you’ll be key in helping us set up our high-throughput screening practice.
Ivy Farm is seeking Research Associates to join our rapidly growing cultured meat company. We are developing exciting new technologies to tackle a range of challenges associated with making this vision a reality. This is a lab-based role where you will be supporting the delivery of our research goals.
With a Masters or PhD in Biotechnology, Life Sciences or a relevant field, you’ll have two or more years of post-doctoral experience or industry experience in myogenesis or adipogenesis. As a Scientist in Cell Biology, you’ll be key in helping us develop and optimise stem cell cultures and protocols.
In a company that always asks ‘what if?’, you’ll be integral in tackling our most challenging biological questions. Working closely with bench scientists, analysing data sets, and developing new pipelines to support our Research and Development, you’ll bring a PhD in Computational Biology, or a Masters and relevant industry experience, to this exciting new role.
As the Extrusion and Food Process Engineer, you will be the first member of the Bioprocess Engineering group that will be responsible for the design and implementation of Ivy Farm Technologies’ first-of-its-kind manufacturing processes and facilities. This position will design, build, test, and scale-up mechanical process equipment for cold extrusion and other specialty process applications. The role will require a strong background in machine design with the ultimate goal of deploying this equipment in our future commercial-scale manufacturing facilities and bringing strategic differentiation to our production platform.
You will be responsible for the design, building, testing, and scale-up of the upstream unit operations centred around animal cell culture and recovery operations. You will have a strong background in bioreactor design, theory and operation as well as bioprocess equipment and facility design in general. By working closely with the Bioprocess Development group in R&D, equipment vendors and external collaborators or partners, you will help Ivy Farm change the way meat is produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.
As Project Manager within the R&D team you will pro-actively contribute to the consistent on-time delivery of R&D projects from Cell Biology to Bioprocessing. Your responsibilities include monitoring and communicating the status of R&D projects to the leadership Team and ensure these are completed within the expected timeframe.
As the Protein Sciences Leader you will be utilising your expertise to design and execute protein engineering strategies, source new technologies and implement new assays towards low cost and reproducible manufacture of proteins such as growth factors for cultivated meat. You will work closely with the other R&D teams to optimise protocols and deliver our company-wide milestones.
As our community manager, you will engage with people who are equally passionate about animal welfare, combatting climate change, and off course love great food, to build and increase brand awareness and establish Ivy Farm as the number one cultured meat player and thought leader in the UK.
You will be the company’s face and create and curate all the content shared on social media platforms and corporate blogs. It will excite you to get the opportunity to engage with many different people, be it the public, journalist, politics and NGOs to name a few. Whilst social will be your focus you can expect to get involved in other exciting marketing and PR projects, from photo shoots, website management, asset management, agency management etc.
You will be the culinary leader for Ivy Farm, maintaining close links with R&D, product development and marketing. You will provide knowledge on trends and competitor activity to the rest of the business and be a stellar technical project manager. You will be required to be our public face and understand our products and be able to confidently explain their quality and nutrition both internally and externally.
