Interested in making an impact on the way meat is produced? Come join Memphis Meats as a Computational Biologist in our Data team. You will work closely with tissue engineers, cell biologists, and other scientists and engineers to build tools, design experiments, perform analyses, and build models that improve all aspects of cellular agriculture in a wide range of species. As a key member of our scientific team, you will have a large impact on the research performed at Memphis Meats. You will also have the opportunity to work in a green field that is ripe for innovation.
From Maastricht 2019, Simon Kahan of Biocellion SPC introduces the Cultured Meat Modeling Consortium, an interdisciplinary effort to bring the power of computer modeling to research, development, and optimization efforts within the nascent field of cultured meat (aka clean meat, or cell-based meat)Cultivated meat promises to solve some of the world’s most urgent problems, including feeding ten-billion people by 2050, preserving ocean ecosystems, and reducing animal agriculture’s impact on the climate.Yet, to fulfill this promise requires that the cultivated meat field first develop efficient processes that create desirable products.We believe using computational modeling can accelerate the optimization of both processes and products, enabling the field to mature into an industry years before it otherwise would, while also reducing the cost of that transformation.
