R&D Manager

We are currently seeking a R&D Manager to lead the development of new seeds and new technologies to improve the economic and health impacts we deliver to rural populations. This individual will be based full-time in Guatemala City, with up to 50% travel to the field. Semilla Nueva maintains a basic seed evaluation program which evaluated new hybrid seeds annually from research partner CIMMYT. We have recently begun a backcross breeding program, which introgresses biofortified genetics into high yielding, conventional materials and has required the launch of a high throughput nutrition lab with partners in Guatemala. All of these efforts are designed to create new products which can increase farmer incomes and improve health outcomes at scale.

Semilla Nueva fellowships are designed for individuals who want to gain on-the-ground experience in a dynamic international NGO.
