For EV Biotech, we are seeking a Fermentation Scientist. This organisation is a biotechnology start-up company that creates microbial production platforms for high-value chemicals and proteins using computational modelling and microorganisms.
By combining classical fermentation methods with the latest developments in modelling approaches, EV Biotech has revolutionised the methods of microbial strain engineering. Their microbial cells factories (MCFs) provide effective, bio-based alternatives to conventional chemical-synthetic production processes. The Groningen-based team has been operational since July 2018 and is dedicated to EV’s mission to evolve the chemical feedstock market by shifting it from petrochemical-based to bio-based chemical production, thereby creating a greener economy for all.
In developing MCF, it is important to keep the final goal in focus.
