KEY SKILLS / EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:
ROLE & COMPANY OVERVIEW:
A venture capital backed AgriTech company has developed technology capable of neutralising methane emissions from cattle - this has the potential to revolutionise the AgriFood sector and provide huge environmental benefits, with scope to achieve huge greenhouse gas reductions (equivalent to emission levels created by the whole transportation industry combined, for scale).
As product development advancements in this company continue, defining and ensuring strong animal welfare standards is imperative. Therefore, a Head of Animal Science is required to lead a team of scientists & researchers, create & oversee trials, and lead groundbreaking research efforts.
You will need to be an established expert in the Animal Science domain, particularly relating to cattle, with a back catalogue of research projects behind you - and, ideally, expertise specifically relating to animal welfare and/or methane mitigation and emissions.
Additionally, a passion for new technologies and sector sustainability, along with the personality to thrive in a commercial start-up environment will be needed!
