About the Role

In this role, you will have the opportunity to lead technical landscaping for plant-based proteins and ingredients, identify key challenges, and articulate solutions to accelerate the industry.

Your analyses will help create a roadmap for improving the quality of alternative protein products and growing their market share. You will ensure that efforts and research funding are allocated toward the highest-impact research areas to accelerate the adoption of plant-based proteins and transform agriculture toward more sustainable systems.

Working with key academic, nonprofit, and industry stakeholders, you will help plant-based alternative protein products achieve or exceed sensory and price parity with conventional protein products as quickly as possible.
