For the project “Cultured Meat”, in collaboration with MosaMeat, B.V., we are looking to expand our team with a postdoctoral fellow versed in skeletal muscle cell biology. It is the purpose of the project to create muscle organoids of sufficient maturity to serve as substrate for consumable meat. The tasks involve cell and tissue culture of skeletal muscle organoids towards functional, morphological and proteomic optimization. Strategies towards optimization include cell selection, cell (co)culture, cell-biomaterial interaction and maturation approaches. The project will be carried out in a team with PhD student(s) and technician(s), supervised by the CSO or by a senior investigator.
For these tasks we are looking for a biological/biomedical researcher at postdoc level with knowledge and experience in skeletal muscle cell biology in in vitro settings. As the project involves product development, the candidate needs to be comfortable with applied research in a mixed academic/company environment.
The project and position are initially for 1 year but with excellent prospects of extension to 3 years.
Knowledge of and experience with skeletal muscle cell biology
Comfortable with applied research in mixed academic/company environment
Comfortable supervising students/junior staff
