Agriculture is experiencing one of the most rapid and disruptive periods of innovation in modern history as regulations, consumer behavior, and sustainability align. From farm to fork, governments, established industry players, and innovators alike look to identify new opportunities and business models enabled by technical advancements including sensors, machine learning, robotics, fermentation, genomics and metagenomics, and materials science.
At Lux, we serve innovative clients in a variety of industries as they evaluate technologies, use cases, and business model innovation to respond to and find success. Clients include multi-national chemistry, food, electronics, materials, and consumer goods companies in addition to investor, academic, and government groups. Lux Research is seeking an experienced Analyst to bring thought leadership in agriculture innovation to a talented team.
We are looking for an Analyst who has advanced education and industry experience in agriculture innovation. Candidates with a broad understanding of crop protection and nutrition alternatives, digital agriculture solutions, and/or an understanding of the application of genomics in agriculture are encouraged to apply. The candidate will write, develop, manage, and motivate research reports and analyses that help Lux clients make better decisions about investments, partnerships, and technology strategy within the rapidly changing area of agriculture innovation and its connection to sustainability and the food system. This includes developing novel methodologies to understand when, how and why technology platforms (e.g. synthetic biology) will impact the industry or examining the business models that enable scaled technology integration of the myriad solutions that exist today. Successful candidates will advise clients on topics related to their research, present their research at conferences, and speak with C-level management at startups and established companies that are developing cutting-edge technologies.
This role is based in the U.S. although candidates based out of Amsterdam are also of interest. The successful candidate will work closely with colleagues across our global organization.
