Product Development Scientist * Food Safety * Microbiology

Gulf Stream Search is working with a leading-edge Food Safety organization that works with major food, beverage, ingredient and flavor companies and supplies them with food safety and pathogen detection systems.

Major food brands and testing laboratories have stayed loyal and gravitate towards our client because of their proprietary methodologies and equipment. Their team is made up of Engineers, Scientists, and executives at the leading edge of food safety, food security, and pathogen detection at the gene level.

We’re looking for a Phd level Product Development Scientist who’s looking for an opportunity to develop and design products that allow companies to assess freshness, supplier quality, presence of pathogens and any number of other criteria.

We’re looking for someone with the following background:

Phd in Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Genomics, Molecular Genetics, Genetics
Working knowledge of assay development, preferably in a commercial environment
Experience working in a wet-lab environment
Product development experience with diagnostic, testing, or detection systems

The company is based on the west coast in the State of California – the region is highly desirable for life sciences professionals and our client is well funded and has a track record of success with leading food and beverage manufacturers.

If you’re a Phd level candidate with Post-doc and/or commercial experience in/around food safety and food security, we should talk. The field is growing and evolving – if this role doesn’t make sense, we can at least explore what you’d like your next step to be and we can help make that happen.
