Research Fellow Position in Cultured Seafood Meat

My Laboratory in National University of Singapore (Department of Biological Sciences) is seeking a highly-motivated Research Fellow to join our efforts in researching and developing Cultured Meat Products from economically important seafood and fish species.

Key Research Duties and Developmental Roles:

  • Develop and optimize protocol for the establishment and maintenance of primary muscle stem cell cultures, and their subsequent selection and eventual conversion into permanent stable cell lines.
  • Develop robust protocol for the differentiation of muscle stem cells into terminally myotubes, and their finally assembly into “Cultured Meat”.

If you are a passionate, motivated and highly independent individual looking for an innovative research position in “Cultured Meat”, please submit your application and detailed CV using the contact information given below. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted for interviews.
