About the Role 

The best way to predict the future is to create it 


As Process Engineer you are responsible for creating a mass and energy balance model of our first Cultured Meat plants. You will work in the Engineering team which is part of the Process Development Department to advance and scale up our Meat production process.   


Together with the team, you will be challenged to design both a pilot and a full-scale cultured meat plant. Your work will be used to steer the Process Development Roadmap and facilitate the decision making. A significant part of your role will be building a model in SuperPro Designer. In addition, you will closely work with our scientific experts in the field of bioprocessing, molecular cell biology, biochemistry, food science, and engineering to bring innovation to your progress. Together with an interdisciplinary team, you will be challenged to contribute to experimental design, to generate relevant input data for the model.  


In order to be successful in this role, you need to a curious mindset, determination and a sense of humor to cope with unexpected changes and work in a dynamic environment. If you possess these skills and if you get excited when reading this role, you are the person we are looking for!  Having interpersonal communication skills and being able to effectively communicate your results to colleagues with a different expertise background is a plus. 



  • Model mass and energy balances
  • Techno-economic evaluation of process alternatives for cultivated meat production.
  • Data analysis.
  • Bioreactor design based on microbial kinetics and G/L transfer.



  • Education: MSc. Life sciences, Bioprocess engineering, Food technology, or similar fields. PDEng in Bioprocess Engineering is a big plus.
  • Experience: Entry level.
  • Knowledge in: process flow-sheet modelling, microbial biotechnology, fermentation technology, cell metabolism, modelling of cellular kinetics, G/L transfer, downstream processing, scale-up/scale-down, food technology (meat product), techno-economic evaluation.
  • Following skills would be of added value:
  • Experience in working with SuperPro Designer is a big plus
  • Experience with engineering and commissioning of unit operations in the process industry
  • Modelling microbial kinetics and G/L transfer in Matlab, Python, or similar.
  • Mammalian cell culture
  • Experience in downstream processing for cell/liquid separation.


We offer 

  • A competitive salary
  • Participation in our employee stock option plan and pension plan
  • A dynamic work environment in a new exciting field using cutting edge technologies, working with the leaders in the field
  • A caring culture with strong emphasis on team performance and personal development
