Job description

Develop research priorities and resources to accelerate the sustainable protein industry

The Good Food Institute Europe (GFI Europe) is at the forefront of the movement to transform meat production in order to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change and global hunger, to antibiotic resistance and animal suffering.

We work with scientists, businesses and policymakers to make plant-based, fermentation-made and cultivated meat delicious, affordable and accessible. Please check out our website, our 2021 Year in Review, and our 2021 Europe Highlights blog post to find out more about who we are and what we do.

We are at an exciting stage in our growth, and are looking for a Research & Resource Manager to join our team. For more information about this role, please take a look at the job brochure.

In order for sustainable proteins to address the world’s biggest problems, the industry needs to scale up rapidly. In this role, you will develop research and resources that support companies and investors in navigating the sustainable protein landscape in Europe and accelerate the growth of the industry. 

As a member of our growing corporate engagement team, you will be responsible for:
