About the department

You get the opportunity to join an expanding, international, high performing team in Bagsværd, Denmark, responsible for developing analysis and evaluating results supporting the production of diabetes products all over the world. In close collaboration with key internal stakeholders in Product Supply, we establish the strategies for controlling, monitoring and evaluating the physical stability of our diabetes products.

The position

You will support the biophysical characterisation specialist in day-to-day challenges and in more organised projects supporting production. In this role you will be an active part of the laboratory where you will perform analysis using some of the most sophisticated analysis within biophysical characterisation of proteins (e.g. small-angle X-ray scattering). Research activities will be focused on handling and understanding challenges related to Novo Nordisk production sites around the world.

Examples could be crystallisation, understanding the impact of various stress conditions encountered during production and the effect of these on protein stability.

We are looking for an intern with a passion for Science and drug development. You are currently studying for your Master’s degree in Pharmacy, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or another relevant field. We prefer if you already have general knowledge about research disciplines and key methodologies related to protein research and production (e.g. protein structure, protein analysis, protein purification etc.). We expect you to master both English and Danish, verbally as well as in writing, that you have the skills to handle a large volume of projects (with supervision) and the sound personal judgment to make wise decisions.

As a person you are curious and dynamic, with a positive attitude to new ideas and people. You are committed to your tasks and reach your goals and have a keen interest in understanding science. You are cheerful and show a positive attitude towards challenges and you are great at focusing on solutions and opportunities. You take the initiative for driving your projects and are able to stay on top of things in a dynamic working environment.
