We make real animal fat. Without the animals.

We’re looking for a Cell Line Development Engineer to join our awesome team

Your expertise in cell line development and stem cell culture will make you an essential member of our R&D team in London.

At every step, you’ll play a huge role in shaping the future of a young and dynamic startup.

You will be the technical lead for our cell line development team, responsible for deriving, engineering and validating new adipogenic cell lines.

  • At least two years’ experience working in mammalian cell line development and genome engineering in a commercial setting
  • Excellent knowledge of mammalian primary stem cell culture, molecular biology, genome engineering and synthetic biology
  • Enthusiasm, curiosity and drive

  • Mesenchymal stem/stromal cell culture and differentiation
