Scientist, Downstream Optimization, Kalundborg

Pioneer a brighter future
At Novozymes, we work in close partnership with our customers and the global community to make a sustainable impact. We use science to advance industries, and as part of Research, Innovation and Supply, you will help find the biological answers and build the new businesses that can pave the way for a brighter future.

Scientist, Downstream Optimization, Kalundborg
You will be working with optimization of biotechnology processes for enzyme production in laboratory and industrial scale covering downstream processing. We are a total of 2 technicians and 7 optimization scientists in the recovery department - who are looking for a new colleague. The Downstream Optimization department is part of a Global Optimization function with departments in Denmark, US and China organized within the Product and Process Development area.

In Downstream Optimization, we conduct our optimization as cross functional projects and focus on team work. The interaction with our upstream sister department, Fermentation Optimization, is very strong, using both shared projects and potential job rotations to foster cooperation and people development. Our results are created in close collaboration with our development departments and production facilities in Denmark, China, Brazil and USA. We typically work on projects of 5-15 months’ duration resulting in significant and value creating process improvements such as capacity improvements and yield optimizations. We thereby contribute directly to the Novozymes’ bottom line. To keep meeting our business targets in a dynamic environment, people development is a key focus area in the daily work.

Your main challenges will be to optimize downstream, i.e. recovery, processes based on scientific knowledge, process data and experiences, lab investigations and production trials. The optimization efforts must be balanced with business targets, which requires cross functional business understanding.
You will be participating in and potentially leading different projects following a project model inspired by Six Sigma.

In this position you need to:

Hold a MSc in chemical engineering or biotechnology, potentially combined with a PhD and/or industrial experience. Knowledge and interest in unit operations and equipment is considered an advantage.
Be skilled scientist with a strong analytical and creative mind combined with a lot of personal drive.
Have a structured approach in your daily work and can maintain an overview in an environment where changes are an integrated part of the daily work.
Thrive in an informal and dynamic environment and want to make a difference in your daily work.
Possess strong networking and team skills since interaction with process operators on shift, lab technicians, and scientists located globally are an important part of the job.
Have excellent English oral and written communication skills - if Danish is not your own language, you are ready to learn Danish.

Are you the next Zymer in our team? Consider a career with Novozymes and let’s realize your potential together.
