Pairwise believes healthy food should be affordable, convenient, and sustainable. We believe gene editing can be used to accelerate plant breeding in leveraging the natural genetic diversity in agricultural crops to address global food challenges. We are bringing the benefits of these new innovations both to producers and directly to consumers through the produce aisle of their local grocery store. Located in the Raleigh-Durham metro area, Pairwise was formed in 2017 and has plans to add about 100 employees over the next year to help meet our aggressive product development goals.
The trait testing lead will be responsible for assaying the phenotypic variation of native plant traits as well as the output of the gene editing program and help to set the scientific strategy. This senior scientist will manage a team of PhD scientists that will form the core of our understanding of the various phenotypic traits that Pairwise will work on. This role will also be part of Pairwise’s scientific leadership team and report to the head of product discovery. This position will be critical to not only building the scientific strategy but also the culture of our R & D organization as the company grows.
