Do you have an interest in developing innovative oral drug delivery devices? Do you have strong programming skills? Do you have a strong personal drive and dedication? Then join us as an intern in Novo Nordisk and get an opportunity to work alongside experienced colleagues from many different nationalities within various fields.
As an intern within oral protein and peptide delivery, your main objective will be to focus on developing innovative oral drug delivery devices. Specifically, you will contribute to the engineering, prototyping, and evaluation of novel oral device concepts as part of an interdisciplinary project team. The team comprises a diverse mix of competencies spanning across multiple natural sciences and engineering disciplines as well as our R&D organization.

- Working hours: Flexible (min. 18 and max. 37 hours a week)
- Start date: As soon as possible
- Internships are remunerated if your educational track allows
- A Danish full-time work permit is required
You will be able to combine an internship with lectures at university, project work or writing your thesis. It is an opportunity for a unique learning experience and a chance to turn theories into practice.
You are currently studying to obtain an MSc degree in engineering or other relevant disciplines. Specifically, you are knowledgeable in medical device design and engineering. Additionally, we would like you to:
- have experience within sensors, actuators and electronics
- be comfortable setting up physical experiments and calculating physical parameters
- have programming skills (e.g., knowledge in MATLAB and LabVIEW)
As a person, you are outgoing with a strong personal drive and dedication.
